Our official name is Christian Church Of The Crossroads and we are a movement...a gathering of people changed by Jesus Christ, learning to love like Jesus Christ and offering the hope of Jesus Christ to others. We are committed to loving one another, loving our neighbors and serving Mt Washington and beyond in radical, selfless fashion. We don't have a building of our own, and that's ok with us for now. Church buildings require a lot of work, resources and upkeep. We'd rather spend our efforts and resources going to help those who are at a CROSSROADS in their lives...the hurting, the broken and despaired. That seems to make more sense to us. We are compelled in this way because we've been given hope. A hope that has changed our lives in drastic, powerful ways for the better. A hope that we cannot contain or hide and have to share. A hope that is found in Jesus Christ. And, we believe this hope is not just for us. We believe there is hope for everyone!
our Worship team:
Most people just call him by his last name, “Parkey.” When his professional basketball career didn’t pan out and his hunting and fishing show never made it to production, he settled down and married Valerie. They have two children, Riley and Beau. Riley just made his dreams come true by becoming a Kentucky Wildcat and Beau keeps him on his toes as a new driver and with comic relief around the house. John's first love will always be Jesus, but ice cream and naps aren’t far behind.
Besides leading COTC in worship each Sunday, Royce enjoys hanging out with his wife, Courtney, and playing with their three kids Camden, Aria, and Violet. He also likes golf, fishing, and hockey. He stays busy playing guitar and singing when he isn't hitting the golf course, playing ball with Camden, or hosting a tea party with his girls. You will see Royce each Sunday morning leading the church in praise and worship.
