Crossroads Young Adult
Connect & Challenge
Saul was a well-known and vicious persecutor of the early Christian church. However, in Acts 9 he had an encounter with Christ in the form of a blinding light. After this experience, Paul (renamed from Saul) transformed to become one of the most influential disciples of Christ.
Similarly, we believe that when young adults have an encounter with Christ, their lives are transformed. Our goal is to lead young adults to Spirit-filled encounters that connect them with Christ and challenge them to act on a deeper level of faith.
The Crossroads Ministry is for young adults ages 20-27 and consists of three elements that rotate on a 16-week schedule:
Crossroads Connect (Life Groups)
- What: Discussion-based meetings to learn and apply God’s word to our lives. We will focus on one or two specific topics during each 16-week period.
- When: 7-8:30 p.m., every other Wednesday
Crossroads LIVE (Worship Services)
- What: Special evening services filled with creative expressions of praise and worship. Designed to lead young adults to worship in spirit and truth.
- When: At the conclusion of the 16-week Connect Life Group period
Crossroads Encounter (Retreat)
- What: Getaway experience to focus on Christ, spiritual development and issues of young adults.
- When: Check with leaders for details.
How do you stay connected? Join our Facebook group to receive reminder notifications about our ministry events and connect with other young adults.

Vision: The vision of the Covenant Brothers Ministry is simply to “connect and lead”. We connect our young and older men, and connect to other men in our community and other churches. We develop tenacious leaders and skilled men of character who are empowered to mentor, teach, equip and encourage other brothers in the Word of God. We are connected to one another by a covenant relationship.
Mission: The name implies that we are men of covenant, worth, quality and strength. We are first spiritual leaders and we are the friends of God and the pastors of Mt. Pleasant Worship and Outreach Center.
We are strong men dedicated to God, our families, our church and our community.
As it relates to the ministry: We will hold up the standards of the Word of God and our church’s vision. We will support our Men of Valor Men’s Conference and work diligently to bring to fruition the objectives set each year.
As it relates to God’s kingdom: We are movers and shakers with a unique understanding that the kingdom is “within us,” and endeavor to seek the kingdom first to come to a full awareness of what the kingdom entails. With this knowledge and power, we shall teach the Word, cause the blind to see, lame to walk, the dumb to talk, and raise the dead.
As it relates to our families: We will build our homes into God-ordered homes, establishing the man as the primary responsible party for the household and for creating an environment of equal partnership with our wives. We will establish a home wherein our children will feel loved, developed and protected.
As it relates to our community: We feel that we must break the generational curses upon us and our families and the children of our community and destroy the deception of the enemy.
As mentors: We are dedicated to becoming role models and examples to the young men in our church and other men in our communities. We are trailblazers in that we lead the way for other men to follow. Instead of stepping in someone’s else shoes to live out their vision, we’ve brought our own shoes.

Our vision is to intercede through music and song into the lives of people, to lift up our voices in spiritual warfare and worship.
We require 5 commitments for membership:
- Commitment to rehearsal.
- Commitment to punctuality and participation. All choir members are expected to arrive on time to services on Sunday morning and ready to sing the opening song. It is strongly encouraged that all choir members strive to arrive ahead of time to spend time in prayer and meditation before ministering.
- Commitment to accountability. Timely advance notification of absences for rehearsals and worship services is expected.
- Commitment to growth in the Word. Choir members are encouraged to participate in Bible study and LDC classes to continuously learn the Word of God. As you obtain knowledge of what the Word of God says, your spirit is strengthened while empowering you to sing with the anointing. It is a great one-two punch to participate in both.
- Commitment to a great attitude. We are looking for GREAT attitudes, a sense of humor, and people that are willing to work hard. The attitudinal posture while one is rehearsing or singing goes a long way in ministering.
We meet at 10:30 a.m. on the Saturdays before the fourth and first Sundays of each month.

Depending on the audience, the skits will present practical and relevant information in a form that is entertaining and exciting.
