"I am so excited to be Senior Pastor at Cross Baptist Church. I love the local church. It is the "body of Christ" giving evidence of the love, care, and compassion of Jesus to the local community. If there is one thing I hope Eufaula, AL and the surrounding community comes to know and experience, it is that Cross Cares! We care because God cares for you and your family. "We love because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19, CSB). I hope you will join us soon and experience just how much Cross Cares as we attempt to express just how much Christ cares for you!"

"When (Jesus) saw the crowds, he felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd" (Matt. 9:36, CSB).

Cross Cares because Christ Cares!
