Job Description:



About the Organization:

The church is a “non-denominational” Christian fellowship, originally started in the backyard of Pastor Brad Cooper’s home in the summer of 2002. After a brief time in that location, a relationship developed with the local Association of Retarded Citizens (ARC), enabling the church to use their building as a place to meet regularly.

A short six months later the newly founded church purchased, and further developed, an existing facility near 13th St. and Ridge Road. In the fall of 2013, Crossroad diverted from its long standing plans to build on 40 acres of purchased property in far west Wichita, and instead purchased a larger, existing church building at 2139 S. Maize Rd where it is currently located.
