The Role: Worship Pastor

Cross Pointe BuildingMeet Cross Pointe:

Cross Pointe Ocala began in 2004 in a circle of about ten people who were ready to see church be more than an organization, something to attend on Sundays, or what Christians are just supposed to do. The families who began the journey wanted to experience Christ with one another and then wanted to share that with the rest of the world.

The journey, which included renting space at Central Florida Community College, hosting summer day camps to some of the poorest Marion County residents, baptizing in a small pool after church services, and seeing people connect to God, to others, and to the world, has validated that vision – that dream that ten people in a circle had. Our story has just begun and is nowhere near its completion. We invite you to be part of the story, a story that is committed to reaching our community and our world for Jesus Christ.
