In 2006, the Windsor Park Church of Christ moved to the south side of Corpus Christi and became the Kings Crossing Church of Christ. God has blessed us richly in our time here. In December 2016, we were successful in paying off the mortgage on our existing building, and we had a great celebration with a ceremonial mortgage burning. That was one step, but we believe God still has big plans for our congregation.
In September 2016, having spent much time in prayer and in conversation with our members, the Shepherds laid out our VISION 2020. These are the goals we have prayerfully committed ourselves to over the next five years. Our goals include:
- Doubling our attendance to 600 or more
- Thriving ministries for all ages, and especially for young people
- An increasingly relevant, dynamic worship experience
- Facilities to accommodate a growing church
While we feel very blessed with our current facilities, in order for us to achieve our goals of ministries expanded and lives impacted, we believe it is time for us to consider the next phase of our facility needs. Beginning in January 2017, we are entering a time of deep prayer and conversation about how God might be preparing to work though each of us, and whether we as a congregation are ready to take the next step in adding more space for our young people, a better location for activities, and accommodations to allow us to grow our ministries.
Drawing from our conversations with various groups about our needs, we have had an architect do enough preliminary planning to give us the ability to budget and plan ourselves. We urge all of our members to be praying about this opportunity and about how God may be calling them to grow in his likeness of both service and generosity.
