Money? How’s this place funded? How’s money handled?
At Crossroads you’ll find a bunch of people who have experienced God in a real way. It’s the generosity of these regular people that fuels the life change that takes place here and helps others connect with God. These people give a tithe (ten percent of their earnings) and offerings to what God is doing through Crossroads. There is strict accountability in the handling of all monies, from the counting process through the accounting process. The day to day management falls under the duties of the pastoral staff. A financial report is reviewed monthly by a representative of the board of directors and annually by the entire board. We believe checks and balances are important and we are a registered charity with Revenue Canada.
There seems to be a lot people working on the weekend, are they all paid?
Nope. Most of what you experience around Crossroads happens because of a bunch of incredible people who volunteer their time to serve in a variety of areas including kids ministry, greeting, worship team, hospitality, etc. They’re volunteers and we like to think of it as a Servolution.
