Global Outreach Trips
Experience God’s heart for the nations
Jesus commanded his followers in Matthew 28:19 to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” The Bible challenges all of us to go to people with the gospel. We encourage followers of Jesus to go to people with the gospel in both their own cultural context and as well as a cross-cultural context.
These trips impact God’s kingdom by blessing the local missionaries and local church. Teams are able to provided the labor and funding to accomplish projects that could not be done on the local level. Our eyes are also opened to see the world the way God sees it.

About CrossRoads Missions
CrossRoads Missions Mexico seeks to glorify Christ through worship, service and discipleship. They intend to transform the city of Piedras Negras with the love and compassion of Christ by working alongside and empowering already-existing ministries through construction projects and outreach programs.
CrossRoads Missions has been present in Piedras Negras, Mexico (on the Texas Border), for more than a quarter-century. Past construction projects include two churches, two schools, an orphanage and a neighborhood of many single-family homes with a community center. Outreach programs include soccer camps, medical clinics, soup kitchens, hospital feeding programs, community events and other activities depending on ministry needs.
About the service projects
Volunteer mission teams spend time ministering in the CrossRoads community by getting plugged in to our ongoing ministry. Group participants work together as the body of Christ to display a testimony of God’s love through construction projects and outreach programs to empower local ministries to be the face of Christ in their community so that when we leave the ministry of Jesus continues.
Construction projects in the Mexico field are primarily aimed toward finishing homes on the remaining 10 lots available in Piedra Angular as well as existing CrossRoads facilities within the neighborhood. There are also often opportunities to assist our local partners with upkeep and renovation of their facilities. CrossRoads staff, interns and local professionals will supervise work including concrete, drywall, tile, roofing, painting and other various work projects.
Outreach programs include community events, feeding programs, and medical missions. Our current outreach focus is refugee relief work. We fund an open meal program, offer a place of housing at The Ranch, and provide groceries for individual families. Different ways that our teams get plugged in are by grocery shopping, cooking a meal, and fellowshipping with our refugee friends.
