OUR GLOBAL PARTNERS
Want to know the on-the-ground team you’ll be serving with?
MANNA GLOBAL MISSIONS
Cross Point partners with Manna Global Missions in the Dominican Republic. Our work is focused on a children’s home in Bobita, a mountainous region near the northern coast, and in Santiago, where we work to empower students to create better lives for themselves and to reach their communities. Trips with Manna will be spent with the Rogers family, a long-time partner of Cross Point, working with the children’s home and various projects around Santiago.
THE 410 BRIDGE
We partner with the 410 Bridge in Haiti, Guatemala and Kenya. They have a model of community development that focuses on 5 areas of development: discipleship, water, education, economic and health. What we love the most? These projects are ongoing with or without teams present. This allows each team time and energy to pursue relationships as they work alongside community members on projects and through visits in their homes and churches. On all 410 trips, you’ll do just that: building relationships through working on projects with the community that they have ongoing.
In KENYA, we serve in the agricultural village in the highlands of Nairobi called Kahuria. Cross Point funded the building of a school in 2015, and the community finished building the school in 2017. The main focus of this community right now is educational development.
Our community partner in HAITI is a small fishing village on the southern coast of Haiti. This community was decimated by Hurricane Matthew, but is doing much better now. You’ll spend your time in the schools with the kids and with the leadership council and pastors.
Our partner in GUATEMALA is our newest partnership with 410—a coffee farming community called El Pajal. El Pajal is a coffee growing community focusing on women farmers. Their coffee beans are sold to Thrive Coffee, the coffee suppliers for Chick-Fil-A. 410 is coming alongside Thrive to do development work in the community and to assist in creating sustainable business practices.
Known as the ‘Mother of the World,’ Egypt’s nickname acknowledges its ancient history and role in civilization. Public discontent, based on sub-par living conditions and few job opportunities for average Egyptians, largely contributed to the country’s 2011 revolution. As Egypt continually changes, God is also changing hearts and lives. The overall goal in our ministry in Egypt is to reach the country’s vast population with the life-giving Word of God. Existing as a partnership between foreign workers and locals, OM Egypt seeks to encourage the existing church to reach out to non-believers, to direct various ministries withinEgypt and to engage the country’s growing refugee population.
Heart for Lebanon
In the middle east, millions of refugees are fleeing for their lives, willingly exposing themselves and their families to danger, in order to escape the horrors of war. Thousands upon thousands of these people have arrived in Lebanon. In partnership with Heart for Lebanon, we seek to address the physical needs of the refugees through humanitarian aid and education for children, build relationships through home visits, faith based programs and children’s activities, and lead refugees into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Aloe Family
San Luis, Mexico is a town on the US- Mexico border. Through The Aloe Family, we seek to empower, love, and serve the people of San Luis. The mission of the Aloe Family is to equip future leaders to change cycles of poverty in their environments through healing, hope and community empowerment.
We partner with Seed India in Kolkata. Through our work with Seed India, we seek to change places of poverty to places of opportunity. This is done through community development, rescuing children from dangerous situations and placing them in our residential Dream Homes, and church empowerment projects.
WORLD RELIEF CAMBODIA
Cross Point partners with an organization called World Relief Cambodia. They train and equip local churches to intentionally reach out to every person and family in their community, regardless of religion, age, gender, health or economic condition. While there, the team will grow in their understanding of Scripture and leadership as they serve as volunteers in the community. Together, we will assist in educating vulnerable families about community health, agriculture, HIV/AIDS, savings and trafficking prevention.
