This month the congregations of Crossroads Community Church and Restoration Church unanimously voted and announced our plan to merge together with the intention to replant under a new name and vision. Today we are excited to announce our new name: Family Church.
WHY THE FAMILY CHURCH?
Family is rooted in the Trinitarian nature of God. Just as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one family in relationship with one another, so is his church (John 17:21). From the beginning of creation, God declared, “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Genesis 2:18). Not only did God create and bless the marriage relationship, he extended familial and relational attributes to his church.
WHEN & WHERE WILL WE BEGIN?
We have a mission and vision rooted in the Lord’s commands to his people: Love God Passionately and Love People Personally (Mark 12:29-31). Our aim is to see people follow Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20) and walk in obedience as the church (Hebrews 13:14-18). Initially, we plan to gather at 3233 Loyola Drive, Kenner, LA 70065 to serve our community and begin new works to impact our city.
WHO WILL LEAD US?
Jesus forms the church (Matthew 16:18-19) and guides us by the work of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:42-47). Our pastoral elders will be Dean Ross of Restoration Church and Larry Johnson of Crossroads Community Church. The elders are responsible for leading the church to function as a New Testament church and accomplish its purpose. Pastor Dean Ross, as pastor of preaching and vision, will serve as the primary communicator, supervise church staff, and represent the church. Other servant leaders and teams, including staff and deacons, will be formed.
HOW CAN I JOIN THE FAMILY?
Currently, we are working toward a soft-launch this Fall 2020 and a public launch in 2021. All active members of Crossroads Community Church and Restoration Church will transfer to the Family Church via a membership commitment.
