OUR GLOBAL PARTNERS
Want to know the on-the-ground team you’ll be serving with?
Our longest global partnership is with GO Ministries, in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC in a community called Brisas. The key relationships we have in the DR are with two pastors—Moise and Jose Luis. Moise is Haitian and Jose Luis is Dominican. Historically these two people groups don’t get along (to put it lightly), so it really is incredible that these two are friends and partners. On a trip to the DR, you’ll get to spend time with them, as well as serve with the kids in the feeding center.
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.
Caring Hearts Mexico
San Luis, Mexico is a town on the US- Mexico border. Through Caring Hearts Mexico, we seek to empower, love, and serve the people of San Luis. The mission of Caring Hearts is to be passionately committed to delivering hope and empowering positive life change in vulnerable populations in Mexico and elsewhere through feeding the hungry, educating the forgotten, providing shelter and comfort to the abandoned and orphaned, rehabilitation for the addicted, help for the sick and the powerless with a demonstration of love to the poor and hurting.
SEED stands for Save, Equip, Entrust, Disciple. We partner with SEED in Kolkata, INDIA. The Dream Home is a main focus here—a safe place to rescue girls from delicate and dangerous situations. We also work in the Salt Lake Slum to do community development and educational development.
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.
