Arlington Christian Church (ACC) began with a group of 40 people meeting in Mrs. Schaffer's school to worship and dream about doing big things for God.
After 8 years, the congregation had outgrown their school meeting place and ACC moved into their new home in the facility they built at 5200 Bowen Road.
The Elders at ACC brought Barry Cameron and his family from Florida and he became the new Lead Pastor, bringing with him a vision for continued growth and discipleship.
Having once again outgrown their worship space, ACC added the Family Life Center to the building at Bowen Road, enabling them to make new spaces for worship, Bible studies and kid's classes.
As more and more room was needed to reach the kids in the surrounding community, the Castle was built for the Children's Ministry and the Student Life Center soon followed, giving the Youth Ministry a space of their own.
ACC had expanded as much as the bounds of the Bowen Road location would allow, and so the Elders took a step of faith and purchased a 150-acre plot of land off of South Highway 360 at the crossroads of Arlington, Mansfield and Grand Prairie.
Arlington Christian Church officially became Crossroads Christian Church as they moved into their brand-new facility and celebrated all that God had done for them and all He was still planning to do.
The congregation at Crossroads celebrated together as they had followed God's financial guidance and were officially debt free!
Construction of the SportCenter was completed bringing an indoor gymnasium, outdoor volleyball courts, soccer fields and tennis courts to the developing campus, allowing the newly formed Sports Ministry to reach even more children and adults in the surrounding community.
The new Children's Building opened allowing kids from Kindergarten through 6th grade to have their own unique space to sing, dance, play and celebrate being a child of God. Opening an additional building also gave Crossroads the opportunity to host events like Night to Shine and CIY SuperStart in a new and exciting way!
The next step in expanding the Kingdom and reaching the lost came with the opening of the Youth Building, a place specifically designed with teens in mind to come and gather and find community.
