Crossroads Church began in 1991 with a few families who had a dream of a church that would reach people who did not yet have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Founding and Lead Pastor Steve Cordle pursued this dream, taking the church from its humble beginnings at the Tonidale Restaurant, to the initial North Fayette campus in Oakdale, to where it is today: a multi-site evangelical church with five campuses in communities surrounding Pittsburgh, PA.
Holistic groups are central to the philosophy of ministry and discipleship at Crossroads. This approach to church is deeply engrained in the DNA of Crossroads, so much so that Pastor Steve wrote a book on it entitled, “The Church in Many Houses: Reaching your Community Through Cell-Based Ministry.” Additionally, through the power of prayer and the healing work of the Holy Spirit, Crossroads has seen many people healed from the addictions, afflictions and pains of living in a fallen world. Those who serve in leadership here welcome the activation of the Spirit – especially for healing and prophecy.
