Greetings Crossover Family,
My name is Nikita Carter and I have been a member at Crossover Church for about 4 years now. It might come as a surprise if I share with you that I emigrated 5 ½ years ago to America from Amsterdam, The Netherlands to pursue my college education abroad. Four years ago I had no idea of what my purpose in Christ was or my calling. But, Crossover Church has been the foundation for me to mature spiritually in my walk with Christ. I rediscovered Christ. I developed my talents, gifts and abilities in Christ and I found out how to display Christ with my talents and my life.
Four months ago, I truly believed that I would no longer be able to stay in America, due to the fact of the expiration of my student visa. Today, I can truly confess that God made a way for me. He has placed a calling on my life and I have accepted to answer His call. I never imagined in a million years what my calling was going to be. However, this year 2013 is officially the start of me living for God instead of me living for me. I am starting my life’s purpose as a full-time International Urban missionary in America at Crossover Church. The statement: “Walk by faith, not by sight” is becoming a true meaning for me more than ever before.
According to 1 Peter 4:10: "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." God has given me the gift of dance, not just to keep it to myself, but to bring Glory to Him and to serve others. With this gift God is giving me an assignment, which is to start and lead a dance ministry at Crossover that will re conciliate people with God, the community and self.
It is an honor for me to serve others here at Crossover and I feel blessed for the opportunity to extend my stay here in the USA. Most importantly, I want to see God’s will be done. Crossover Church continues to grow, to disciple, to fellowship, to minister and to change lives through its engaging and relevant message: The Gospel.
I am excited to see what God is going to do in 2013 in our church, in our families, in our relationships. I look forward to connect with all of you here at Crossover and to get to know you all personally, to pray for you and your families and I pray that God can move on your heart to support me as I strive to continue to do His will.
