Love, Know, Trust, Follow Jesus
We are a community of believers who want you to laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you while we all strive to become the people God has created us to be. We live our lives by the belief that we are called to “Love God, Love People.” No compromises. No exceptions.
All are welcome. You can come right now as you are. We invite you to encounter your Creator who will transform you so powerfully that you would not stay as you are.

Meet Our Pastor
Led by our Campus Pastor, Doug Osborn and his team, the foundation of our church is built on strong, biblical teaching, Christ-centered worship, discipleship and a community of purposeful, intentional relationship. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God's vision for your life, giving, or joining us regularly. You don't have to take the next step alone.
Doug came to us from his home state of Missouri. He joined the CrossLife staff in August 2018. Over the past 27 years, Doug has served in student ministry, high school sports chaplain, pastored a church plant, and recently accepted the call to serve as Campus Pastor for our CrossLife East campus. Doug’s passion is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. He enjoys golf and most things sports related. Doug and his wife Sonya have three sons and a daughter-in-law, James, Daniel, David, and Chloe. They are also the new grandparents to James and Chloe's son, Henry!
We are excited about the future of CrossLife East. We are ready and looking for a HOME.
Will you partner with us to obey irrationally, give extravagantly and pray big prayers over where we are going as a church?
