CrossView Australia exists to equip, assist and facilitate believers moving out into cross-cultural ministries from their local church base, with a focus on seeing mature churches established among the world’s neediest people groups.
We are committed to:
1. Facilitating cross-cultural ministries, both local and global
We partner with sending churches to equip their members by connecting them with a network of experienced field practitioners and by coaching participants through an extensive curriculum. We then help them connect to a range of ministry contexts and teams and offer advice as they make a choice. Throughout this equipping and sending process we consult regularly with their local churches. Then, once they’ve moved into cross-cultural ministry contexts, we help as needed to see that they are supported, guided and cared for.
2. Contributing to an understanding of world needs in Australia
We pass on information about the needs in least-reached people groups and what it takes to see churches planted among them that go on to maturity. We share about the challenges of cross-cultural communication and discipleship. And we let Australian churches and individuals know about the opportunities for them to get involved. In the process, we share resources with churches and their members about how they can be more effective cross-cultural communicators in their own communities.
3. Serving the wider Church in the Great Commission
We seek to develop and maintain relationships with like-minded churches, ministry teams, training facilities and mission agencies around the world. We also invest financially as we’re able, in opportunities and projects that promote cross-cultural ministries and that contribute to a greater understanding in Australia. We are also glad to encourage innovation and creative solutions that further God’s global purposes.
