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 full-time for an organization that plans short-term mission trips for youth groups. I have been participating in Cross Culture's worship ministries since 2017 and was named the worship ministries coordinator in spring of 2020. Cross Culture has become my church home and I love that the congregation works together to fulfill all of the different church functions. One of my favorite things about times of musical worship is simply hearing everybody's voices praising the Lord together!"
