About Rusty George
I’m so honored to have been invited to be part of this incredible church! Crossroads has an incredible reputation for Kingdom impact and I’m thrilled to now join you in this mission to love God and love people.
Here’s a little about my journey. I grew up outside of Wichita, Kansas where I came to know Jesus through my home church, Countryside Christian Church. I graduated from Ozark Christian College in Missouri where I met my wife, Lorrie. We then moved to Lexington, KY where I was honored to serve at Southland Christian Church as their Young Adult Pastor. In 2003 we moved to Valencia, CA to take over a 3yr old church plant meeting in a movie theater called Real Life Church. Over the 20 years we were there we saw God grow the church from a few hundred meeting in a movie theater to thousands meeting in multi-sites while planting over 20 churches. As for our family, we have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 daughters. Lindsey and Sidney are now in college back at Ozark where Lorrie and I first met.
You must be wondering, who is this guy who is our new Pastor? Well, in short, I love Jesus and my life’s goal is to help more people find and follow Jesus. I take him serious, but not myself. I love my wife and kids, I love to laugh, drink coffee, read books… oh, and I love my sports teams. (Chiefs, Royals, Lakers and Sooners if you’re wondering!)
It’s been a joy to get to know you over the past few months and I’m so excited to do ministry with y’all! (And I’m excited to be able to say y’all again!)
