Crossroads Church

Worship Pastor

Oakland,

Maryland

Why I Love This Opportunity

David Santistevan

Senior Associate

Most small towns have small churches. But Crossroads Church is a bit of an anomaly for the area it’s in. The work that God has done these last 16 years in Deep Creek is genuinely remarkable. Crossroads has grown to nearly 1500 people starting with just a small group and is making a massive difference in the community. It is the definition of a healthy church. I’m excited to work with Crossroads because they have an incredible team, are growing steadily, and have a healthy culture to build upon.

About This Organization

In a 2001 visit to the WISP resort, the Marsh family heard singing and followed the sound into a room where a group of young people worshipped. Sneaking into a corner, they joined the worship. As they walked out of that room, Dave Marsh envisioned planting a church at Deep Creek Lake. Several years went by, and life had its share of twists and turns, but the vision never faded.

In September of 2007, Crossroads Church became a reality. By 2013, the attendance was filling up at Garrett 8 Cinemas, and the church took a massive step of faith and purchased Garden Center Plaza for $1,000,000. The church started to see hundreds of people baptized, marriages being restored, addicts being set free, children disciples, and those far from God coming close to Him. That group of 30 people has grown exponentially, and the church has seen attendance numbers of over 1600 at our fairground services. This is incredible for an area this size.

In April 2019, Crossroads broke ground on a new building project and began a 2-year spiritual journey called Greater Things. In November 2020, Crossroads held its first service in its new Spiritual home, a 17,400 square-foot building containing a 656-seat sanctuary, foyer, restrooms, an office suite, and a new nursery for the precious babies and toddlers. The existing building has been repurposed to meet the needs of the ever-growing Kids Church, which is now well over 200 children.

As the church continues through 2023, they continue to see the Lord moving in the area. Crossroads is blessed with a weekly growing attendance of over 1,000 people every Sunday and are continuing to see growth in the kids ministries, summer camps, and small groups.
