Jake believes strongly in God and family.  He was raised in the country and is an avid outdoors-man.  Jake worked in tire sales and construction until God laid it on his heart to become a minister and since then he has eagerly pursued God’s plan for his life.  As a minister, Jake believes he should lead by serving first, to preach Gospel to all, and to help people to follow Jesus closer by example. Jake thoroughly enjoys caring for God’s Church and being actively involved at Crossroads. He has very much enjoyed becoming a part of Crossroads and is very excited to be here.

Cameron Woodring

Youth Minister

Engagement Church WebsiteCameron grew up with his family right around the corner in Fort Scott, Kansas. He loves to play basketball, hang out with friends and do pretty much anything that is active. He married Chelsea in December of 2015 and graduated from Ozark Christian College in the spring of 2016 with a degree in Christian Ministry and major in youth ministry. Why youth ministry? Raised in the church by God-fearing parents, a youth minister poured into him and challenged him to really know what it means to live as a follower of Christ and to actually do it. He wants to do the same for your students now. He sees Jr. High and Sr. High students who want to know that they are loved, who want to know that they belong and deep down want to know they have a purpose in life. He wants each of them to know that those are all fulfilled in Christ!  Being a follower of Christ is not boring, its actually a joyous adventure every day. Contact him anytime and he would love to meet you and your student! Cameron can be reached via email at cameronwoodring@cr4him.org
