About Us

CrossTown is an under-resourced, inner city neighborhood just west of downtown Orlando, FL.  The community was given this name by its residents, so you won’t find CrossTown on any maps or official documents.  But you will see it tattooed on arms, etched on basketball courts, and written in people’s hearts. Built on the other side of Division Ave, the effects of segregation and racial prejudice have created multi-generational poverty, which has led to broken families and broken people.  However, it is by God’s providence that this neighborhood, long plagued by poverty, drugs, crime, and hopelessness, would have the very source of hope in its name—the Cross.  

At CrossTown, we believe the gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything; it touches every area of life.  Therefore, we are seeking to create a gospel ecosystem, a collection of initiatives to disciple every area of life. 

CrossTown Kids is one of the initiatives in our ecosystem.  It is an After School Program and Summer Camp that disciples elementary students.  Discipleship includes students growing in their faith in Christ, but also learning how to read; how to think critically; how to develop healthy relationships; how to manage their resources, etc.
