Who We Are
Crosshaven is a Christ-centered church with a biblically focused and passionate way of doing things. We believe that Jesus should be the focus of everything that we do (church is not about a denomination or about what you wear or about what you sing or about who you know). It should all simply be about Jesus Christ. At Crosshaven, you will find that the Bible is taught as it is (God's unchanging Word). You will also experience worship music led by the Crosshaven worship band and singers that will take you to the heart of the Gospel. We hope that each time the body of believers comes together to worship at Crosshaven that we all leave much different than when we came. If we don't then we have missed the point.
Crosshaven Church first met on February 15, 2004 with a small group of people who simply wanted to worship Christ and reach the community. Crosshaven has grown tremendously since that time and has had the incredible experience of being a part of God changing many lives. After meeting in several temporary locations and settling in for over a year in the Hanceville National Guard Armory, Crosshaven eventually bought 14 acres of property on Hwy. 31 between Cullman and Hanceville, Alabama and built our first on-campus facility in 2005. An additional 1.5 acres of land was purchased on the south end of our property in 2008. Phase 2 (otherwise known as the DB) was completed in 2009 with the addition of more preschool, children's, youth, college, and adult ministry space. Currently, we are about to begin some new renovations to the Worship Center area (adding a new cafe', greeting area, and updates to the stage, kitchen, and restrooms) - and watch for the opening of our new nursery area in the DB soon.

Crosshaven's future is biblically focused as we seek to fulfill the calling that Christ has given us to make disciples of the nations. Our vision right now is for the launching point of that calling to be to reach the Hanceville area with the Gospel and to love and disciple people. In short, we are passionate about loving God, loving people, and living gospel!
