Senior Leadership Change
As announced on Friday 9 February 2024 by email and in-service on Sunday 11 February 2024, David and Rhonda will be returning to Canada in the summer. As such, Crossroads will shortly be starting the search for a new Senior Pastor.
You can read Pastor David’s letter to the congregation here.
Crossroads has a comprehensive policy to facilitate this change which includes commissioning a Search Committee. The Board of Elders will keep the congregation up to date with what is happening, but if you have any questions you can contact the Elders directly, or speak to one of the pastors. It is normal to experience a range of emotions when a Pastor leaves, including worry or sorrow, but if you have questions or would like reassurance, please reach out.
