In 2013, Pastor Vincent and Joy received the vision to plant Cross Church in Denton, Texas. After receiving consultation from other trusted advisors and leaders, Pastor Vincent hosted the first vision meeting in June 2014. At that meeting, he unveiled to family and friends God's calling to plant Cross Church. The plan was put into action starting with weekly Bible study and community outreach activities. We are proud to say that our story began with serving others as we connected with and became friends with the homeless community of Denton.
While others planted in schools, Pastor Vincent instead had a different vision to plant in a movie theater. He approached Silver Cinema Theater about hosting services at their location and they concurred providing a unique environment for our contemporary worship service. In October 2014, Cross Church hosted its first preview service at the Silver Cinema Theater in Denton. Pastor Vincent's original plan was to have monthly preview services, but after that service, it was decided to have services weekly. In November 2014, Pastor Vincent and Joy completed the church plant assessment center with Converge Worldwide, an organization that supports new church plants. As a part of Converge, Cross Church receives resources, coaching, and support to establish a strong ministry foundation.
Finally, in January 2015, Cross Church officially launched and hasn't looked back. There's an amazing energy every Sunday morning as we live out our motto. Even though our history is short our future is bright. We are excited about what God has in store for Cross Church and invite you to share in our story.
