Birthing a Ministry

Vol. 1 Issue 3-April 2013


Dear Crossover Family,

May all be well and I am so blessed to announce and share my praise report with you all.  As of April 8, 2013 all outstanding fees for my religious visa application, a total of $4000 have been fully paid off.  God truly continues to provide for his children, and I am thankful for all the friends and family that chose to support up to this point already.
 This month I would like to dedicate this letter to you. To you because, you give me a reason to be here fully committed. You give me a reason to serve here at Crossover Church faithfully and you are the reason why I am here.

When I think about having a ministry with a purpose, I think about serving wholeheartedly and I am reminded of the following verse: “In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” (James 2:17) 

In these four years I have had the honor to use my gift of dancing for the Lord at Crossover Church as well as other ministries outside of Crossover Church. In the summer of 2012 I traveled to Rwanda for a short-term mission trip with an organization called Thru Guidance Ministries, where I was part of a dance ministry. It was through Thru Guidance Ministries that I discovered the calling on my life. To express freely in the arts is a phenomenal feeling and I know that I have the ability to pass on that gift to the ones who wish to do the same. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” -1 peter 4:10

Currently, I am experiencing how God is molding me into His masterpiece to do his work with excellence. God is preparing me for the birth of a ministry here at Crossover Church: A Dance Ministry within the future Crossover Music and Arts Center (C.M.A.C.). The vision to reach others through the arts has been planted in me. Seeing part of God’s vision is amazing, but being able to execute it for Him is even more remarkable. As I am slowly but surely birthing a dance ministry within Crossover Church, I simply would like to express how I am truly grateful and blessed for the entire Crossover Church staff, members, attendees and visitors.

What to expect for the following month:
-  April 28, 2013 is Crossover Church Membership 101 class
-  I am choreographing for the National Day of Prayer on May 3, 2013 at Steinbrenner field at 7pm
-  Roots groups will start the week of May 13, 2013. I will be leading a Roots group for Young Ladies!
