Hey 7-8th Graders join us during Second Service on Sundays for EMERGEms!

EMERGEms is our Middle School service where we have fun learning about who Jesus is outside of the "big church". We meet every Sunday with the exception of Major Holidays. Hope to see you on Sunday!


Pastor Luke came with his wife Brittany from Southern California. He loves to surf, and pretty much everything about the beach... yes even Texas beaches! They moved to Decatur Fall of 2016, specifically to be a part of CrossRoads. "We are so blessed to be a part of this community, within a few weeks we were calling Decatur HOME!"

He received a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration from California Baptist University. After college he worked in plumbing sales for 6 years, he then took a job at Harvest Christian Fellowship, his life time church. He and his wife Brittany had been volunteering in youth ministry for a combined 19 years! Luke worked as the Jr High Pastor's assistant for 2 years before joining us at CrossRoads. 

Pastor Luke's vision for EMERGE Youth Ministry is to teach the unadulterated Word of God with current application for all ages, and to do so in a fun and engaging way.

"At CrossRoads our mission is to Develop Engaged and Empowered Followers of Christ, this is also my goal with student ministries. That our combined ministry effort is the same across the board, in every area of the church."

Since arriving in Texas and discovering surfing is nearly impossible, Luke has recently taken up indoor climbing. If you would like to get to know him a little better stop by the church and say "hi".   


What We're Studying

In EMERGEms on Sunday mornings we are currently going through the book of James, verse by verse. We are focusing on Doctrine as well as how to study the Bible in-depth.

In EMERGE on Wednesday nights HS is looking close at Characters in the Bible in a series called "Only Human" MS are going through steps on how to know God more.

In February both HS and MS will be doing a relationship series called "Relationship Status" discussing romantic relationships, sex, marriage, and friendships.
