Local Missions

Crossroads is highly involved in the community and seeks to make an impact for God's Kingdom through daily discipleship and mission.

A few of the local ministries we support are:


Camp Gilead (www.campgilead.com)  

Camp Gilead is a Christian Camp and Conference Center located in Polk City, FL. They exist to provide a fun and exciting environment to win others to Christ and to assist local churches in training and discipleship through a quality camp ministry. Their motto is “changing lives….one heart at a time.” Camp Gilead offers a wide range of programming and services for children, youth, families, churches, schools, and organizations, so that all guests are able to hear from God without the distractions and pressures of everyday life. 

Camp Gilead is a Christ-centered, Bible-believing, non-denominational, non-profit 501c3 ministry. 


  Church Planting  

Crossroads has a vision to help start more churches throughout Polk County and the rest of Central Florida. The Endeavor church planting project is a missional effort that sees Crossroads as a base from which to multiply other reproducing churches. Crossroads planted CenterPoint Community Church in Winter Haven, FL several years ago.  Currently, Crossroads is partnering with Corazones Agradecidos, a Spanish-speaking church plant in Wahneta, FL.
