A tradition at Crossings, this time of prayer is a way to prepare everyone’s hearts and minds for Crossings’ mission offering, known as The Beyond Effect. It is a time for the churches to offer praise to God for the work He has done and ask for His blessing over the work that will be done through their giving that night.

Last night started out no differently. As the band played, churches huddled in prayer before collecting their offering. However, last night’s offering marked a milestone at Crossings. As of last night, over $1,000,000 was given to missions throughout the life of Crossings!

We stand amazed at all the Lord has done through His faithful people who have given to missions through Crossings over the years. We praise the Lord for all He has done and continues to do through the reach of these sacrificial gifts. Let us all rejoice that through our giving, we get to play a role in seeing the nations reached for the Gospel!  ! As we celebrate this landmark, let’s praise God for the lives that have been changed forever by the Gospel and pray for those that will continue to be impacted through your faithfulness to give!
