The Crossroads Chapel is at a Crossroads
The Chapel has become a fixture on the fairgrounds to many who look forward to the variety of programs that are presented. It is an oasis of hope to many who worship there on Sunday. Each year the gospel is shared with hundreds of people and each year people return to share their stories of life changing faith and answers to prayer.God has answered our prayers!
In the midst of an ever increasing secularization of society, Crossroads Ministries has prayed and sought God’s direction for expanding its ministry on the State Fairgrounds. It has been the desire of the Chapel Team and Board of Directors to replace the aging Quonset hut where we were located for 25 years.
In the spring of 2011, God opened the door for us to move into a newer, larger building which is located at 1362 Underwood Street. We are next to the Kidway.
Throughout the summer, the Chapel Team and many volunteers have worked to have the building ready for ministry at the 2011 State Fair. We see many possibilities of ministry in this new location:
We are tasked with the purchase, renovation and expansion to meet our current and future ministry goals. Although much has been started, we lay before you a great opportunity to partner with us in prayer and finances. As a team, we have made our personal pledges and are committed to purchasing the new Chapel building debt free.
- Increased capacity to minister to many more fairgoers.
- A continued Christian presence at the MN State Fair.
- Enlarged stage for improved worship/music activities.
- Greater children’s outreach (next door to the kid rides).
- Air conditioned environment.
- An expanded bookstore space.
- Updated technology for multi-media Gospel presentations.
- A “green” and energy efficient building to be good stewards.
Over the next two years we are asking for donations, pledges and gifts in kind to help us meet the overall goal of $500,000. We ask that you seek the Lord’s guidance on how you can help us reach the next generation of fairgoers with the Gospel of Christ.
