Crossings has many different ministries dedicated to serving people here and abroad. Here is a list in alphabetical order.
Adoption & Foster Care
We’ll walk alongside you on your journey. There are over 8,300 children in the foster care system in Oklahoma that need stable, loving families. Each deserves a home and compassion regardless of their situation. If you can’t become a foster family or adopt, there are other opportunities to be a support … mentor a child … rock babies in the shelter … help gather supplies … and more.
Many families in Oklahoma feel the call to adoption or foster care, but don’t know where to start. Chosen — OKC Adoption Ministry provides information and support to families who have questions about adoption, as well as families already in the adoption or foster care process.
Crossings Bookstore, located in the northeast corner of the Atrium, is a resource and gift shop which carries a variety of Christian materials for growth, encouragement, and inspiration for all ages. Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs’ Sunday morning messages are also available in the Bookstore.

Life on earth is a mixture of joy and sorrow, and God calls us to move through these times with each other. Whether it is the birth of a child, a hospital stay, or the loss of a loved one, we’ll walk with you, providing connection, consolation, and comfort.
Crossings Christian School
The mission of the Christian, college-preparatory school is to partner with parents and church to develop Christ-centered servant leaders who are academically and spiritually prepared for college and life. From 39 preschoolers in 1998, the school now educates students in preschool through 12th grade.
Crossings Community Center
One of the tangible ways we pour our time and resources into serving the greater Oklahoma City area is through the Community Center. A pressing need in our community is education, so the Community Center has partnered with John Marshall Mid-High School to offer The Club, a weekly mentoring, life-skills training, and spiritual program. The Community Center also utilizes various ongoing and recurring resources to develop strong relationships within the community.
Crossings Community Clinic
The Clinic’s purpose is to share the message of Christ by serving the health needs of the less fortunate in our community. The Clinic serves Oklahomans who are uninsured or otherwise without access to primary care. Medical, dental, vision, and counseling services are available by appointment at no cost.
One doesn’t have to live in Oklahoma long to realize it is one of the greatest places on earth. That said, it is also a place that can present some tremendous seasonal changes. Ice storms, floods, wildfires, violent tornados, and yes, even earthquakes, are a part of life for Oklahoma residents. Driven by our great compassion and desire to be the hands and feet of Christ, Crossings Disaster Response Team (CDRT) was created to restore hope and rebuild lives when disaster strikes.
Crossings hosts many special events throughout the year, including concerts, leadership seminars, guest speakers, and more.
The Library, located next to the Bookstore, offers a variety of books and recordings to be checked out by Crossings members.
