Crossroad Community Church is ready for an innovative and encouraging Central Student Pastor to oversee the Student Ministry and teams the seven campuses of CCC!
On the cutting edge of ministry being done as “one church in multiple locations,” Crossroads currently has seven campuses in the Northern Illinois-Southern Wisconsin area and they are passionate about working together in reaching and serving people who live in a rural context with the message of the Gospel.

The campuses span as far west as Galena and east to Sycamore. The furthest south campus is in Morrison, IL and CCC has a campus as far north as Monroe, WI.
Crossroads Church believes God has called them to help bring transformation to rural communities for the cause of Christ.
