Join us as we Plant & Build

To fulfill our mission of bringing Jesus to everyone by meeting the needs of the community and growing the faith of all who believe, the Central Florida Cross Network has committed to becoming a community of 8 churches and a K-12 Christian School by the year 2020 while building up area non-profit organizations.

Each ministry in the Central Florida Cross Network will be raising funds over the next 3 years to plant 3 new churches, build existing ministries, and build our communities by supporting non-profits, providing micro-business loans and creative community programming.

Background

In 2010, the Central Florida Cross Network set out to develop 7 new outreach areas for service and worship, involve 10,000 people in active ministries of service, be a top school in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and cultivate millions of dollars in planned giving for the many ministries of the network by the year 2020.

SinceĀ 2010, the Central Florida Cross Network has grown by 4 churches, built The Oasis Homeless Center, started Hand In Hand Ministry, founded Cancerbank.org, held a series of mission trips to the Guatemala mission and established a dormitory there, acquired the land and building that allowed us to start offering High School, refreshed the Lake Mary Campus while expanding the space for 3 of our 4 churches, and so much more.
