Our mission of connecting people to Christ begins locally and stretches around the globe. We serve supper to build relationships in our community, and provide help in ways that honor the God-given dignity of every person. We support missionaries all over the world, and love taking short-term trips. We have a thrift store that turns donations into support for mission projects. We look for God at work, and we jump in!
“Missions home base” is upstairs in the Community Life Center (Niceville Campus). Follow us on Facebook or contact Tyler Fuller. The Bargain Box and Supper on Saturday also have fantastic Facebook pages.

The Christmas Store (PLUS!): Once again we will partner with Sharing and Caring to run “The Christmas Store” in Niceville. We will also be running ‘pop up’ stores in Hurricane Affected areas! This flyer explains the “why” of the store. This flyer gives some advice on what kind of brand new, unwrapped toys to donate. Gifts will be collected between November 18 and December 12 just outside your worship venue.
There is a lot to know when it comes to foster care, adoption, and all of the ways we support kids. Tyler Fuller, Crosspoint’s mission pastor has written extensively on his personal blog about these sorts of issues. These three posts may be a helpful introduction for you:
Ten Ways to be Involved in Orphan Care
How Adoption Works
The Fuller Family Story
Free Lunch and Info Meeting:
The October 14 (Niceville and South Crestview) and October 21 (Bluewater Bay) meetings will include representatives of the Guardian Ad Litem Program, Foster Care, Domestic Adoption, Foster and Adoptive Support Team, and Short Term Trips. After a short introduction we will have two 30 minute breakout sessions with all of our representatives. You can attend the sessions of your choice to learn more about where you may fit into the world of Orphan care! No Reservation Necessary! Come ready to explore what role you could play in the lives of vulnerable children.
Foster and Adoptive Support Team:
Crosspoint is establishing a formal support system for families who have taken in children and teens through the foster care system, or adopted. This team will be a network of folks connected by email and social media available to meet needs and encourage caretakers. Help cook meals for a family who just got a new child, help locate and deliver baby supplies for an unexpected new arrival. Send encouraging cards or gift cards, bake cookies – be part of the ‘village’ it takes to raise every child. Even when that child arrived in a quick or unexpected way. Every need will be offered to the entire team and met on a first-come first serve basis — an ‘opt in’ system. Help how you can when you can!
Contact Tyler or come to the lunch to find out more about the support team.
Short Term Trips and Child Sponsorship:
Crosspoint Mission trips to Haiti and Guatemala include an opportunity to sponsor a child in a community we have an ongoing relationship with. It’s more than just sending a monthly check, it’s about a long term relationship – you can meet the family you sponsor! You can see your letter posted on the wall of their home! Our 410 Bridge trips to Haiti include this opportunity, both of these trips happen every summer. You can learn more about the Guatemala trip at the Lunch and Info meeting!
The work continues! Please bring in “hygiene kits” and “flood bucket” supplies (PDF) until Monday, October 22. Our next phase of relief work will be focused on weekly trips (especially to rural areas), support of shelters, and offering host homes to evacuees. If you are interested in joining us in that work please fill out a survey: yourcrosspoint.org/hurricane/
