Crossroads Church – Origin:
In 1995, a group of 11 Cincinnatians felt a need.
They wanted a great environment to meet with friends to explore questions about God without having to pretend they had it all together or wading through a bunch of religious lingo. They wanted to offer their friends an alternative that would not make assumptions about what they believed about God or knew about the Bible. They wanted to assure their friends that no one would single them out by asking, “Where are all the visitors?”
On March 24, 1996, Crossroads Community Church of Hyde Park “went public” in a Cincinnati neighborhood. About 450 people showed up that day to a rented room, intrigued by the promise of “great music, free coffee and real topics.”
