Local Ministries

We want to make a positive difference in our community. Here are some of the ways we serve Corpus Christi and the surrounding area.

Prison Ministry

Kings Crossing Church of Christ has ministered in jails and prisons for 40 years. Buck Griffith directs the effort from its office at 3833 S. Staples, Suite S-101 (362-855-3372). Their staff and volunteers conduct a wide range of efforts to assist offenders, family members and newly released offenders, including support groups.

 

Family Upreach, Inc. (NewLife Behavior Ministries) also operates out of this office. This is a curriculum-based program that helps people change negative behavior into positive behavior. The curriculum is used in 40 states and over 30 foreign countries. To learn more about our Prison Ministry, please click here.

CASA 12-Step Recovery Group

This program began at Kings Crossing Church of Christ in 1988 to blend the Bible with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous to especially help believers find lasting sobriety and serenity. Since then, CASA groups have formed throughout the USA and in other countries.

Four local support group meetings are offered weekly as well as one-on-one counseling by appointment. Its office is at 3833 S. Staples, Suite S-101 (361-855-3372). Pat Watson is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor on staff.

Every Wednesday night at 7pm, one of the groups meets at our church. To learn more, click here.

Camp Bandina

Each year Kings Crossing leads a session of Bible Camp at Bandina Christian Youth Camp near Bandera, Texas in the beautiful hill country. Many different congregations come together for our young people to spend a week together, focusing on God. It’s a highlight of every year. For more information about camp, click here.

Kings Challenge 5K

In 2016, we began hosting a 5K race on our property, specifically to benefit children-oriented charities. It is a fun event in the fall for the whole family. To learn more about it, have a look at the Kings Challenge 5K Facebook page.

Compassion Ministry

In Corpus Christi, there are a large number of homeless families, including several hundred children in the public school system categorized as homeless. We have a team of people who work at coordinating specific opportunities where we can provide resources that will accomplish the most good. We also partner with the Care Portal of South Texas to respond to needs of families in crisis, as they are vetted through the program.
