IMPACT Giving: Help Make An Impact
People are Hurting!
More people than ever are struggling with a sense of isolation and a loss of vision; the coronavirus pandemic has only heightened these feelings. People are longing for connection with others, with God, and for hope beyond their circumstances.
God is still compelling us to reach our neighbors with His love, so Crossroads is committed to finishing what we started with Impact Giving. We long for people throughout the Triangle to discover a place to belong and a God who loves them completely.
Celebrating What's Been Done
In April 2017, we began a three-year IMPACT Generosity Initiative. It was a big vision to take massive steps to reach our community with the hope of Christ. There was no way we could have imagined what would transpire over the three years from 2017— 2020. We faced a destructive fire in 2019 and then the global coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Yet, through everything, we celebrate in what God has done through the generous gifts to the Impact Initiative:
- We updated the Kids Ministry spaces at both campuses and have seen many kids and families grow spiritually and introduce their neighbors to church.
- We paid $1.49 million toward the Wake Forest Campus mortgage bring us closer to our goal of paying it off and freeing up financial resources for ministry.
- We have secured permits and approvals to begin developing the Recreation and Activity Fields. These outdoor areas at both the Millbrook and Wake Forest Campuses will provide opportunities to reach people who need to know Jesus through sports ministry and family activities.
There's Still More to Do
Although the IMPACT Generosity Initiative officially ended in September 2020, there is still more to do to complete our goals! We know for some, current circumstances are challenging, yet we believe we need to stay on course with God's calling to impact our community.

We have so much hope to share with people in our zip codes! Thank you for your generosity. God will use your faithful sacrifices to impact our community, further His kingdom, and transform the lives of many!
1. Pay Off Wake Forest Campus Mortgage
Paying off the Wake Forest Campus mortgage would free up substantial resources which could be used for outreach and enhancing existing internal projects. The annual mortgage payment totals $408,000. Just think of the many ways we could use these funds to love the people in our zip codes! We need $2.7 million to pay off the Wake Forest Campus mortgage. Becoming mortgage-free would provide greater financial security, creating margin in operating budgets during these uncertain times.
2. Complete the Recreation and Activity Fields
Plans are approved for the Millbrook Campus fields and for enhancements to the Wake Forest Campus fields. Permits and engineering drawings are in hand. As soon as funds are available, we can begin construction. Not everyone is comfortable walking through the doors of a church at first, but they may be willing to attend a sporting event. Imagine how many lives in our community will be impacted through sports ministry and outdoor events! We need these amounts to begin:
- Phase 1 - $365,000 (clearing, seeding, walks, irrigation)
- Phase 2 - $313,000 (electrical, basketball & volleyball courts, shelter)
3. Fund Future Campus Development
People want to be part of a church that is involved in their own community, so Crossroads is committed to going where people live! In 2010, Crossroads Fellowship made an impact in Northern Wake County when we began the Wake Forest Campus. Since then, there are thousands who have been touched in some way by that campus. Funding campus development will make it possible to move forward on potential initiatives like the Knightdale Campus, improvements to existing campuses, and allow us to quickly support unexpected ministry opportunities to fill a need in our communities.
All financial details are accurate as of August 31, 2020. *Please note: Gifts given to the IMPACT Initiative May 2017 - September 2020 have been designated. Gifts given to Impact Giving starting October 2020 will be used as described above. The timeline to begin field projects will be determined after payment of the Wake Forest Campus annual mortgage.
