We are super excited that you came to check out our College ministry here at Crossroads. We try our very best to provide a place where you can both learn and serve at the same time. We want to nurture and lead you, while giving you the opportunity to share in the leadership of our College Ministry. We have many ETBU students as well as students from TSTC and Panola College who come to worship with us. You might have some questions about Crossroads. We might have the answers.

What is worship like at Crossroads?
We have two identical services on Sunday Mornings at 8:00 and 10:30. Our worship style would be considered blended. Musically, we worship with a mix of hymns and newer worship songs lead by a praise band. Our Pastor, David Rice, is an expository preacher with dynamic application.
What do we do on Sundays?
Sunday mornings include Sunday School at 9:15 am, and corporate worship at 10:30 am. (We do not currently have a college specific Sunday School class, but we will plug you in.) Sunday evenings include College Home Group at 6:00 pm. Home Group consists of food, bible study, and fellowship.
How can I serve at Crossroads while I’m at ETBU?
We believe that an outward sign of God’s inner work in somebody’s life is how they are serving the church. Besides Bible Study, college students are encouraged to plug into some of our ministries. Both our Children’s and Student Ministries utilize college leadership. Our student ministry typically uses 10-15 college students as small group leaders in its Wednesday night program. Our Children’s ministry uses 5-10 college students in its various Wednesday and Sunday programs.
Crossroads is a church that is very active in Missions. We serve locally in places like Mission Marshall and the Food Pantry, nationally in Pace, MI and East St. Louis, MO and globally in places like Lima, Peru. We’ve supported many students as they have embarked on global mission trips.
Each spring break we provide an opportunity specifically for our college students to serve in East St. Louis Missouri. If you would like to learn more about this trip and/or sign up please see Marcus and Rachel for more info.
What do you offer on Wednesday nights for those who don’t serve in a ministry?
Our Student Ministry offers a student-led worship time on Wednesday nights at 6:00 followed by a small group discussion time lead by some of our college students. If you think you would be interested in serving as a small group leader please contact our Student Minister Blake Dover. firstname.lastname@example.org
