The VisionAn entire nation transformed by the good news of the Kingdom of God…


 
 

The Cross Connecting Network works to cultivate faithful indigenous leaders working in areas that are often openly hostile to the Christian message. The opposition and oppression is often difficult, but the opportunities are beyond imagination,

We are committed to working with these leaders to do all we can to assist them in taking the Good News of the Kingdom into every possible area of their culture.

We do not pretend to have a strategy of our own, but merely try to follow Jesus, loving people, doing good works, and proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom of God. We invite you to join with us in any way you might choose. And, if you do, we promise that your will see God transform the lives of many...including yourself.

The VehicleThe Body of Christ


The Body of Christ, the Church, is a living organism with the sole responsibility to act on behalf of Jesus.

It is unique in it role in that even in it “humaness” it displays the manifold wisdom of God and His glory throughout all generations, to every nation, and even to the principalities and powers in the heavenlies.

In the darkest of places and most desperate situations, God sends out his people to be light and salt; seeking to share the love of God that they have experienced with others.

Today, the Church has an unprecedented opportunity to function both locally and globally and to share resources and celebrate together as participate as one body in God’s work.

 
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
Ephesians 4:15,16

The Path Seeing and Seeking the Kingdom of God…Together
.



Following Jesus is a straight forward path. We often complicate it, but He doesn’t.

Jesus say all that we need is provided when  we seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness.

God’s Kingdom is where God sets the agenda, the rules, and sets a path before us that is the best possible path.

God has this path all mapped out for us…but there are plenty of distractions, road blocks,  and we have our own agendas. Often, we are prone to wander.

And, although it is the responsibility and privilege of each of us to seek His Kingdom…we were never meant to do it alone.

Seeking the Kingdom of God together with others is the most unifying and productive thing we can do.

Our minds, hearts, and lives are transformed as we do. We learn what it means to repent, to change our direction and seek to understand what God’s desires are.

Cultural differences and prejudices are chipped away as we learn that Kingdom truth is not the exclusive property of any culture. In fact, we learn just how much our cultural influences us to pursue other kingdoms that are vastly different from God’s Kingdom.

And, we want to help people do that… to cultivate and connect people, ideas, and resources as we see and seek the Kingdom of God…together.

 

The StrategySimple – Proven – Biblical
.


  • Step 1: Target Key Leaders

    Our top priority is the development of a few leaders who are committed to knowing, doing, and teaching truth and capable of organizing and mobilizing others. We do not attempt to train hundreds and thousand. We are investing in “some” who can teach “many” so we can reach “all”

  • Step 2: Learn and Improve Through Models

    God’s truth is consistent; our living conditions are not. We work out and improve our application of the truth through 3 different types of communities:

    • The slum community
    • The village community
    • The upwardly mobile community

    In addition, we recognize that we also live within cultural channels or segments that create their own. Each of these communities present different type of challenges and opportunities. By understanding these communities we can, we can help others living in similar conditions to increase the impact of the Kingdom of God in their particular area.

  • Step 3: Multiply by connecting and collaborating.

    Together…by design, God’s work requires a multitude of diverse people working together for a single purpose. We seek to collaborate and empower as many as possible as we see and seek the Kingdom of God…together. And, we invite you to be a part.

And, then?A global network focused and committed to the transformation of a nation…

We believe that God wants to transform lives of individuals, families, communities and even nations.

But, we work in a nation that is dry, dark, and difficult. We often do not understand the culture and lack the skills necessary to make much of a change.

We welcome and celebrate the smallest advances. These victories fuel the passion to continue on.

By faith, we know that God is able to make all grace abound to us, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, we may abound in every good work.

Ultimately our goal is for a nation to experience the fullness of the Kingdom of God. Our desire is to see thousands and thousands of communities of light and salt where millions of people will recognize Jesus for who is really is and follow him and to love others that very same love that they have received from Jesus.

We look to a day when every man, woman, and child has had multiple opportunities to hear, see and respond to the Good News of the Kingdom without having to go come anywhere.

And that day will come when The Church comes along the local churches and the local churches work with others to bring God’s glory to this nation.

When will this happen?

We don’t know?

But we know that we will continue to do the things God has called us to do and to share what God is doing and inviting others to share in the work.

Come join in!
