Proximity Requires Responsibility

Big gifts sometimes come in the smallest packages. Crosswind had its humble beginnings as a bible study of just 14 people and has since exploded into a vibrant missional movement in northeast Mississippi. In the wake of hurricane Katrina in August of 2005, many people from the gulf coast were forced north into Mississippi and into our community. In a matter of days, our small bible study created a resource command center and fed over 100 people daily for over a month while they tried to put their lives back together. We aided in securing housing and clothes for those who lost everything. This mobilization of relationship-based help caused us to realize that there was a huge need for community relief outreach...not only in a disaster situation...but in everyday life struggles as well.  As a result, God brought together a core group of 20 adults to cast the vision for Crosswind. That's how it all started.
 
We never felt called away from the traditional church structure...we were simply called to a different way of thinking (and a different way of living). Proximity required responsibility. Crosswind belongs to God. It isn't our story...its His. We are grateful to everyone who has walked this journey with us.
