Optimizing Facilities for Mission

 

God has deeply blessed Crosspoint and placed us in a position of tremendous potential and responsibility for the years ahead. We are trusting the Lord will continue to grow our church, but also deepen our disciple-making impact. Our desire is not to be a comfort-driven megachurch. Rather, we want to be good stewards of this property and to maximize it for training and sending.

How God Has Provided

2005
July 1

Preparing to Plant

Ken Lewis, Jeremy Chasteen, Mark Welborn and their families moved to Clemson in hopes of planting a healthy church.

August 28

Launch

God brought 36 people together for the very first gathering of Crosspoint Church, which was held in the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) building at Clemson University.

November 6

Clemson House

Crosspoint moved from the BCM building to the Clemson House, where we would meet until summer of 2006.

2006
August 6

Tillman

Crosspoint moved to Tillman Hall for a year as the church continued to grow.

2007
September 2

BOMB

Crosspoint moved to the “BOMB” (Big Old Methodist Building) in downtown Clemson for the next two years.

2009

1019 Tiger Blvd

Amidst a poor economy, being only a 3-year-old church, and seeing no sufficient meeting space in Clemson for our rapidly growing congregation, God graciously answered prayers by providing Crosspoint’s first permanent (and current) facility on Highway 123 for $1.75 million. This was a clear sign of God’s providence in planting Crosspoint Church. Over the next 9 years, members and friends of Crosspoint generously gave toward debt reduction and large-scale maintenance projects (additional $250k), totaling $1.4 million.

Turning the Page

While Crosspoint has been faithfully paying off the mortgage balance, the need has been made very apparent that as we share our space with two active tenants, the opportunity to maximize our facility for mission is within reach. Through the gracious gifts of a few families, Crosspoint mortgage balance was brought under $500k.

Faithfulness for Today

 

With a vision for future improvements, what should we do today? Under the leadership of our elders, Crosspoint has entered into a season of emphasis with the goal of paying off the existing mortgage balance by the end of 2019. Even before this push, many of you have given sacrificially toward this goal. Thank you for your generosity!

94%

Completion of Mortgage

Roughly 6% remains of our existing mortgage balance (~$103k).

In moving forward, we ask you to:

 

1) Pray the Lord would give our church guidance and continued provision.

 

2) Join in by giving through the “Give Here” at the top of this page.

 

3) Share your story and feedback.

Positioning for Tomorrow

 

When Crosspoint was planted in 2005 the vision to bring the gospel to those within the Clemson community was immediately met by the Lord. He brought them to us! Families, retirees, university students and faculty from various states and around the world. And now, as the surrounding Clemson area is projected to grow rapidly in the next five years, it is clear God is continuing to give us great opportunity. We are here for a reason.

 

Just as the Clemson area continues to grow, we too, must grow in order to better address the needs of our community and reach the lost. We need to intentionally position Crosspoint for the future. Each Sunday morning, especially during the fall, we max-out our existing sanctuary seating, often relying on overflow seating. The same goes for our children and nursery classrooms on Sunday mornings and during our Sunday evening children’s discipleship program, Kids Connection. We are becoming more and more aware of how God has blessed us so that we can be a blessing to others.

 

In 2015 Crosspoint met with Equip Studios (Greenville, SC) to begin evaluating and drafting a master plan for the up-fit of our existing facility. With this master plan in hand, Crosspoint has a vision for how this facility might be optimized for mission. Increased children’s and nursery rooms, increased worship space for our Sunday morning gathering, appropriate areas for our youth and college students—all so that we can care for those that are hurting, equip the saints for everyday ministry, and send laborers to the nations.

 

Please continue to pray for our leaders as they continue to discern God’s will and seek to bring to bring recommendation to our congregation.
