  IDENTITY  

Crossover is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization incorporated in the state of South Carolina whose focus is to see God glorified among the nations.

Founded in 1987, today Crossover serves on six continents and has planted hundreds of churches among the unreached peoples of the world.

  BELIEFS  

The Bible is the inspired word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to man, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content and without any error in its original autographs (II Tim. 3:16, 17).




All men in their natural state are alienated from God and spiritually dead (Rom. 3:23).

Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus who died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Cor. 15:3). Those who receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Eph. 1:7) and become children of God (John 1:12).

God is one God, who reveals Himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:4-6). He was born of a virgin and is Himself God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.

Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that was laid to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27). The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead and they will receive an incorruptible body like His glorious body (I Cor. 15:53).


Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of the Spirit (Gal. 5:1-25; Col. 2:6). The Christian’s responsibility is to yield himself to God (Rom. 6:13), trusting God to keep him.

In carrying on this work believers need the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit which is granted to every Christian as he yields and trusts (Acts 1:8; I Cor. 12:7; Eph. 3:20; Acts 5:32). In all of this service, prayer is to have the central place (John 14:12-14).


Jesus Christ will come again to the earth the second time (Heb. 9:28), personally (Acts 1:11; I Thes. 4:1), bodily (Acts 1:11; Col. 2:9) and visibly (Matt. 26:64; Rev. 1:7).

  HISTORY  

In 1987, God used Dr. Bill Jones and João Mordomo to form what would become Crossover Communications International (“Crossover”). Their desire: to see God glorified among people with no access to the gospel.

At first, Crossover focused on mobilizing short-term mission trips. Then in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the world witnessed cataclysmic upheavals in the Communist world — the fall of the Berlin wall, the German unification, the freeing of Eastern bloc countries from Soviet domination, and - most breathtaking of all - the disintegration of the USSR.

It was a time of unprecedented opportunity for ministry. Crossover made a fundamental shift to focusing on sending missionaries to plant self-led, self-supported, and self-multiplying churches among the unreached peoples of the world.

Over the last 25 years, God has grown a small ministry into a globally-integrated movement with three sending bases: Crossover-USA (1987), Crossover-Brazil (1996), and Crossover-Moldova (2004). By God’s grace, Crossover has planted more than 300 churches with on-going ministry on six continents. But there is much more to do.

  PRESIDENT  

I was born in Brazil and became an USA citizen in 2010. When I was 15 years old, I became a follower of Jesus Christ. In 1997, I attend my first missions conference sponsored by Crossover-Brasil, and I was deeply touched and convicted by God to dedicate my life for His honor and glory among all nations. I then started my internship with CCI-Brasil on January 11, 1999, and never left!

I moved to the United States in 2005 where I continued to work with Crossover at our USA office. After seven years in the United States, in April 2011, the Board of Directors of Crossover-USA appointed me to serve as their second president. Crossover-USA is a mission agency committed to honoring God by providing gospel access to unreached people groups.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Bible from Columbia International University, and I am currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Ministry Leadership. I have the honor to sit on the Board of Missio Nexus (the North American Missions Network). I have served as a Perspectives (perspectives.org) instructor since 2007 mainly teaching lessons 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14.

I am a passionate communicator, and I really enjoy speaking about strategies, teamwork, leadership, and church planting. I also enjoy helping others and organizations to discover their potential and calling in life.

My wife, Nicole, and I have a daughter, Gabby, and a son, Linc. My family and I have made our home in Columbia, SC.
