Lead Pastor “I am passionate about knowing God and making him known. I grew up in Mexico and I have spent the last 22 years living, learning, and ministering here in the United States. I have been shaped by many ministry experiences from Mexico to the USA, from Bible school to Grad school, from small towns to big cities, from failed ventures to successful ventures, from youth pastor to church planter… but the experiences I love the most are being a husband to Sarah and a father to five kids. Send me an email or catch me on a Sunday."
Jonas & Bet Cortes
Pastoral Assistant "I grew up in the northwestern suburbs of Minneapolis and now live in Columbia Heights. I am a graduate of the University of Northwestern - St. Paul and I currently work part-time at Cross Culture and part-time in marketing and communications. I have considered Cross Culture my church home since 2017 and I joined the Cross Culture staff in February of 2022. There are many things I love and appreciate about this community, including the emphasis on everyone participating and taking an active role in church functions, worshipping in different languages, and the mindset of living for God's purposes at all times!"
