Relationships Matter

Vol. 1 Issue 9- October 2013

Crossover Family and Friends,

It is with joy that I write this issue to you all. I pray that each of you is doing well and that you remain passionate about the love of God. If you are in a Roots Group right now, then I hope that you are building relationships with others and that you are growing in your faith as well. If you are not currently in a Roots Group, then I encourage you to become part of a group in the upcoming semester.


Let’s look at the meaning of relationships this month. When I lead my Roots Groups relationships are the number one thing I encourage to my group participants. The one thing I want people to understand is that God is about people, therefore you and I should be concerned about the affairs of others. Do not enter into a Roots Group thinking that you are there only for your own spiritual benefit, but be open to learn that God has you there to share life with others in that moment and time, to pray for others, to grow with others and to care simply about people. We are to learn from one another and see the blessings that come from it.

Crossover’s Urban Leadership Conference Flavor Fest was just a week ago, and if you were serving in anyway at this amazing event, then you must have observed what I was able to see. People from places all over the country and world came to this 3-day conference to build, to connect, to relate, and to share with one another their pain, their struggles and their experiences in ministry all for the same greater purpose and vision, which is to serve God ultimately.

Everything we do becomes a success when we work together and unite. Whether you are in full-time ministry or whether you are at your job or at school; being independent is great, but we have to make sure as a body of Christ that we remember that we all need one another in order for us to be successful in the programs that we start or in which we participate.
