Cross Points Church
|Church Description *|
|Cross Points Church (CPC) is a fifty-year-old church that has been reborn over the last four years. It has weathered some tough times and is ready to take steps forward. “We’ve been through the fire, and we’ve gone through our season of healing,” says Lead Pastor David Jones.
David became the Lead Pastor at CPC four years ago, and much has changed since. New key staff have instilled a renewed sense of mission and purpose across all of the ministries. “This is a different church today,” says Andy Bondurant. Andy serves on the Directional LeadershipTeam and oversees family and kid ministries. “There is a new level of passion, and the excitement is not just on Sundays, but throughout the week. Everything feels like it’s changing and improving!”
With a renewed sense of purpose and vision comes fruit and growing pains. “We’ve seen about one hundred people come to faith in the last twelve months,” says David, “but when I think about Cross Points, I think about potential and what God is yet to do through this place. I am believing that God would have us reach many more of the thirty-thousand in our city who don’t know Christ.”
The church is located in Shawnee, Kansas which is in the southwestern region of the Kansas City metro. Kansas City, with a population of over two million, is one of the desirable cities of the Heartland with a unique southern charm.
Sunday mornings at CPC are marked by the modern worship sounds like Bethel, Elevation, and Planet Shakers. The ministry utilizes tracks, drums, guitars, keys, and a couple of singers. LED lighting and large projection screens help set the mood for the engaging worship time. The congregation is engaged, and there is a sense that folks are here to experience God.

|As the church and leadership have gone through a season a change, so has the Worship Arts ministry. While there is an understanding that those who are involved are bought into the vision, there is also a new season of team building ahead. “Our next Worship Pastor has to be an influencer,” says David. “People must be attracted to him/her. This person has to be a pastor/team builder first for us to achieve a God-sized vision for the next run.”
The next leader will need to have his eyes, not only on the ministry under this roof, but also ahead to the church plants that are to come. Pipelines for worship leaders and volunteers need to be filled to meet the approaching needs. Building clear paths for recruitment and involvement, while also equipping others, are absolute musts for the new worship pastor.
“We are a team that values strong leadership and voicing opinions,” says Mark Traver. Mark serves on the Directional Leadership Team with David and Andy. “We are looking for someone who can bring leadership to a new level in this area of the ministry.”
