Crosswind Church came about as a result of a “community of vision” from the pastoral staff of what used to be called the Westminster Church of God. Pastor David Sulcer, along with his staff, had a desire to take a traditional church and move it into a more contemporary model of ministry. His vision was to embrace a more missional focus that would emphasize connecting people to the four navigational points of life.
1) A personal and powerful relationship with Jesus Christ,2) A commitment to engage in spiritual community through our Small Groups,3) A desire to get “hands-on” in real life expressions of service to human need and church ministries, and4) A passion to share the Gospel with every circle of influence we have the ability to impact.
Crosswind has its roots in a rich history that goes back over 40 years ago, when Paul and Harriett Cushing (our current Pastoral Care pastors) took a small group of believers in 1968 and started the Westminster Church of God. Since then, it has steadily grown from a small fellowship to what it is today.
Pastor David Sulcer came to our church in 1994 and began to transition our church so that people could connect to the mission of Jesus Christ without letting programs and structures get in the way. Pastor David has led Crosswind from a small group of around 80 believers to an average attendance of over 500 people. Over the years, Crosswind has moved to a more informal style of church life by offering visually-powerful and Biblically-driven worship services that are full of energy and creativity. Crosswind is committed to providing excellent childcare, children’s ministries, dynamic small groups, and exciting student ministries for your family.
Jesus Christ is the true crosswind that is moving our church forward. If you haven’t visited, we invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after Jesus with a passion!
In April 2018, Crosswind Church celebrated its 50th Anniversary! Watch the video below and listen to Pastor Paul Cushing, our Founding Pastor, tell the awesome story of how Crosswind Church got its start back in 1968. We may have been told that there was no room in Westminster for another church, but "God had a purpose, God had a reason, and everything God did in the building of this church was a miracle."
