Back in 2008, we found ourselves broken, hurting and facing several struggles in our lives. At the invitation of a friend, we walked through the doors of a two-years-old church in Sheboygan that met in a movie theater and experienced what church had never been to us growing up. For the first time we experienced genuine friendships, witnessed lives around us being changed and encountered a Jesus we had never really met.
Fast forward eight years, and you'll find that our hearts desire is to share a message of love and hope. We seek to build a community of people who meet Jesus and follow His leading to love people in Manitowoc and around the World. This has led us and a team of like-minded individuals to launch Crossroads Community church in Manitowoc.
How did we arrive at this point? In 2010, I (Nick), developed a fondness for the city of Manitowoc while working for Associated Bank. In September of 2014 , God clearly laid on our heart His plan for us to launch a second location of Crossroads Community Church in Manitowoc that would help people experience genuine relationships, use their God-given gifts to serve others and experience hope through a personal relationship with Jesus.
Over the past six years, we took numerous steps to prepare ourselves to bring what we experienced in Sheboygan to Manitowoc. Not only do we have a dedicated and passionate group of people who believe in the vision coming from our Sheboygan location, we, along with four other families, have sold our homes in the Sheboygan area and have moved to Manitowoc in preparation for our fall 2016 launch. We are excited to call Manitowoc home, and along with the support of many people from Crossroads Community Church in Sheboygan, we invite you to come and see what authentic community is all about and experience something unique and different that we truly believe will change your life.
