From The Pastor

I am so glad you have found us at, our online home. Our purpose for this web site is to keep our members and regular attenders informed on what's happening here at CrossPointe. We also want our site to be a helpful place for those looking for a church home or just a place to visit on a Sunday. Our mission at CrossPointe is to "glorify God by multiplying faithful followers of Jesus Christ." We take that mission very seriously. We are a purpose driven church. We exist to fulfill the Great Commission (Go and Make Disciples of all Nations) and to live by the Great Commandment (Love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and love our neighbors as ourselves). Our strategy is a simple approach - Bring people in - Build people up - Send people out. Our website design is geared to interact with the various ministries of our church. There are also links to request more information and to contact our staff. Not only can you discover what's happening, but also in many cases you can register for the event online. If you are in the Vancouver area, I want to invite you to experience the ministry of CrossPointe first hand. Thanks so much for taking time to check out our website. ~ Pastor Jim ~

This team is made up of six men selected by the church. The church chooses godly men who are servant-leaders based on the instructions in 1 Timothy 3 for the selection of deacons. The team meets monthly to pray, plan, and discuss how to serve the needs of the church family. Their goal is to get everyone involved in a ministry. The deacons are committed to praying for and ministering to you.


The Elders at CrossPointe serve as a pastoral leadership team for the church. They work with Pastor Jim (who is the leader among equals on the team) to lead the church to accomplish its mission, vision, and strategy based on its core values.
