Many people will hear the phrase “Hip-Hop Church” and immediately have a lot of questions.
If you are reading this magazine, many of you have probably attended a service and had a great time where you saw that church
could be relevant, engaging, and real. At the same time, you may still have some questions about the details
of what we believe. You may think it’s all too good to be true. You may also be a parent reading
this whose child or teenager recently attended Crossover and brought this magazine home. You’re probably wondering
what this “Hip-Hop Church” is all about. Nothing at Crossover is traditional…that’s quite
obvious. However, everything we believe and practice in our services is Biblical. There is a big
The “church” [as a whole] has gotten the two a little mixed up. Jesus was not a traditional guy! As
a matter of fact, he was constantly in conflict with the religious leaders of His day because He kept challenging them.
They tried to look “all good” on the outside, but on the inside they were “rotten”.
Jesus is not so concerned with how we look on the outside, or how we dress when we come to His house, (they didn’t have
suits and ties in His day), as long as it’s modest. He’s not concerned about the music we play, or
the style we choose to worship Him with, as long as the lyrics are clean and glorify Him. Jesus wants our hearts to
be pure! At Crossover, we will consistently change our presentation to stay relevant with the culture, but our
message and what we believe will never change.

Pastors in Pain
There is a huge number of pastors and leaders leaving the ministry each year. This exodus results often from some form
of forced termination.
This site addresses this problem and poses solutions to an issue that is having a huge impact
on the church and its leadership.
It is time that the body of Christ makes a concerted effort to reach out to injured
and hurting ministers who have given their best for our Savior. Too many ministers that leave a ministry simply disappear,
are forgotten and live in loneliness. Doesn't this sound contrary to our great God and the fact that He lives within His people.
These injured men and women of God deserve our best efforts in searching them out, restoring their dignity and showing God's
love for their lives.
To bring healing and renewal to one shepherd may have a domino effect upon an entire congregation.
Pastors are honorable gifts placed in our lives for the benefit of the Kingdom of God . We need each and every one of them.
Helping shepherds get back on the road to recovery is one of the best and fastest means to bring revival in our world.
There are 300-400 million child-slaves in the world; millions of war-victim children; and starving, sick, abused and abandoned
little victims everywhere!
