Serving at The Crossing

We are partners with a ministry in Cusco, Peru, called Zona Zegura. The mission of Zona Zegura is to raise genuine followers of Jesus Christ who will reach out and impact communities, cities, and nations for the kingdom of God. We are sons and daughters of the Most High God, the Creator of the universe. We are a family. We were bought at a price and therefore know we are loved and accepted. We are disciples who worship, lead, and reach out. Our passion is to see others join the Zona Zegura family and experience the overwhelming love, grace, and hope Jesus Christ has to offer.
House churches meet in multiple locations in and around Cusco, Peru. These churches are passionate about friends, family, life, following Jesus, and making a positive difference in our world.
One of our North American mission partners is Church on the Rock (COTR in Vancouver, Canada). The journey of COTR began in 2010 and continues to move forward as the Lord leads. Their desire has always been to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Lord, be discipled into a deeper relationship with Him, develop as a leader, and understand that God has given them talents and abilities to be used for His glory within the church and the community. In so doing, the goal is to serve, with no strings attached, to the glory of God and impact our neighborhoods and communities one life at a time. The Crossing has partnered with COTR by participating in youth mission trips and ongoing ministry support of their missional discipleship process.
What started in 2010 was an awakening in Aledo to the plight of the people in Cambodia and, ultimately, an assignment to the Church at the Crossing. Church members Kyle Y and Amy Bieng, both born in Cambodia, escaped to the U.S. after Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge regime destroyed their families and left them fleeing the country. God used their lives and Kyle's story to get our church's attention and start us on a journey. This has resulted in dozens of mission trips, teaching conferences for their pastors, and supporting the monthly needs of over 25 gospel-centric churches where Buddhism and spiritual darkness fill the land. In 2019 our church sent Kyle and Amy to return to Cambodia as full-time missionaries to love their people and lead them to Jesus.
