Promoting biblical, Christ-filled standards for daily living and for healthy relationships

Strengthening Everyday Disciples

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) While the promise of eternal life is glorious, the stresses and hardships of day-to-day living have many people falling far short of “abundant” life. Cross-Purpose Ministries is a 501 (c) (3) organization that uses discipleship counseling to identify unhealthy behavior and thought patterns, and realign them to Truth given by Jesus.

It is no surprise that relationships are a primary area where dysfunction is exposed, as God created man for relationship with Himself and with one another. While the natural tendency is to run from pain, Cross-Purpose Ministries views pain as a doorway of opportunity to individual and marital growth and healing.

Our Approach

As a faith-based organization, Cross-Purpose Ministries utilizes the Biblical Truth found in scripture, bringing practical application to life issues, “stuck” places, crises, and pain in relationships. Our approach in meeting with individuals and couples follows:

  • Rely upon the guidance of the “Wonderful Counselor” (Holy Spirit), Who has intimate knowledge of people, backgrounds and circumstances
  • Identify the source of pain, frustration, and lies; remove barriers and bondages, and replace them with God’s healing and freedom
  • Teach individuals to recognize and respond to the voice of God
  • Facilitate the discovery and the putting on of true identity in Christ that includes individual calling and purpose

Individual Discipleship Training

Discipleship is more than just studying the Bible. It's learning how to take those biblical lessons and practically apply them to the challenges in life that we face daily. Cross-Purpose Ministries works with people at all stages of their walk with Christ to help them get the most from their life and faith.

Pre-Marital & Marital Counseling

It is ironic that an entire industry worth billions of dollars is built around weddings, but little thought or preparation goes into planning a lifetime together, or preparing for the actual work it takes to keep a marriage healthy and strong. Cross-Purpose Ministries provides counseling before and after the wedding day for couples of all ages.

What’s the Payoff?

Most of us will not undertake something difficult or distasteful to us unless we have a really good reason. The threat of a diabetic coma or anaphylactic shock is usually a good motivator to avoid certain tasty foods and take otherwise unwanted medications. Likewise, losing a driver’s license and serving jail time could keep us…
