On March 15th, Thursday evening of last week, Leadership Evansville presented their annual Celebration of Leadership Awards. Crossroads Christian Church was well represented at the event to say the very least. Again and again the name of our church was mentioned in ways that honored God and affirmed our identity in the tri-state area as an ‘externally-focused’ church. [We want to be a church that exists for the benefit of those who are not yet members.]

Crossroads member, Mike Burkdoll, was nominated for an award because of his work with Point Man, a growing outreach to military war veterans, originally launched as part of our Refuge Ministry. Mike was individually recognized for his work with Point Man, receiving the Lieutenant Colonel Reginald Gibson Award.

Mike Ballard and the Potter’s Wheel was nominated by Crossroads Nursery Director, and elder’s wife, Kindra Hirt, in the Business/Organization Achievement Division. Potter’s Wheel won over a number of impressive businesses and non-profits.

In the Recognition for Project Leadership-Environment category, Crossroads [lead in this effort by Eric Cummings, our Community Outreach Pastor], Vectren and Habitat for Humanity received the award for their Glenwood Neighborhood Weatherization Project.

We all do praise and give glory to God for these recognitions which serve to remind us all that we are called to be salt and light for Jesus Christ in our communities. It is for this reason we serve in His name.

Pray with me…. Father, we give thanks to You for our Lord Jesus who was the servant of all. We pray that many in our area will seek Your face because of the witness of our church’s good works in His name. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Pastor Ken
