Crossroads Fellowship

Student Pastor/Director

Raleigh,

North Carolina

Why I Love This Opportunity

Ryan Latham

Associate

In my opinion, Raleigh is a great place to live and raise a family. “The Triangle” offers easy access to the beach, mountains, parks, college sports, and a mix of small-town hospitality with big-city amenities. Crossroads Fellowship is similar because it is a larger multisite church yet feels like a family. This new leader will work with a fun yet driven younger staff passionate about serving the community.

About This Organization

Crossroads Fellowship Church is a multisite church with two campuses in the Raleigh, NC, area. Its story began in August 1987, when its founding pastor felt the Lord’s calling to establish a new church—thoroughly biblical but clearly contemporary in style, dedicated to reaching those who do not normally attend church.

Their first service was held in June 1988 as a portable church at Athens Drive High School. God blessed Crossroads with exponential growth and provided them with their own home with the purchase of the Black and Decker Warehouse Building (the current Millbrook Campus facility). It wasn’t very pretty and didn’t look like a church, but it had plenty of space! The first worship service at the Millbrook Campus was held in a cavernous, empty warehouse in December 1996. Over the years, God provided the resources to build ministry space in phases. Thanks to God’s provision and the church family’s generosity, they are blessed with the incredible building they have today.

Many people were traveling from the northern part of Wake County when they launched their first multisite campus at Heritage High School in September 2010.

Along the way, Crossroads has been led by several inspiring and beloved Senior Pastors. Andy George became the Senior Pastor in 2016 after serving on staff as the Youth Pastor at the Millbrook campus and launching the Wake Forest Campus as the Campus Pastor.

Position Description

Crossroads Fellowship has had a reputation for its dynamic and influential youth ministry. The Student Ministry Pastor will provide spiritual, pastoral, and strategic leadership for the Student Ministries at the Millbrook campus for middle and high school students.

  • Manage and execute the vision, strategy, budget, curriculum, and programming for Crossroads Students (grades 6-12) to align with the broader church vision.
  • Nurture and grow the partnership opportunities in local middle and high schools and other community partners.
