Partnering together to help Australian Baptists share Jesus
Crossover has partnered with Baptist Churches around Australia at Easter time for over 30 years now. Crossover is Australian Baptist Ministries’ agent for helping pastors equip people in the local Baptist church to creatively share the good news of Jesus, as they demonstrate Christ’s love in community.
Your State Leaders value the contribution Crossover makes as a catalyst and resource developer in evangelism, church planting and church revitalisation. As the Easter Offering is Crossover’s only source of funding, it is vital to us as a movement to facilitate and support church leaders as you equip your congregations for mission.
How we help
Crossover seeks to provide pastors and church leaders with innovative resources, mentoring support, gatherings and events that take the diversity of Australian contexts seriously. Crossover, working in partnership with the State Baptist organisations, exists to be an advocate and champion for witness in both word and deed among local Baptist Churches seeking to be mission-shaped.
Some of the ways we do this is through:
- Christmas and Easter Outreach Videos, sermon guides and invitations
- Emerge: Evangelism Conference – nonimations now open, click here
- Church Planting initiatives in partnership with State Baptist Associations
- Norm Nix Scholarship for missional leadership
- PRAC Magazine for church leaders
- Research & production of new resources such as videos, webinars, e.g: Enterprise as Mission and the Surprise the World
- Being a broker of the best ideas, tools and resources
The Other Story continues…
Following the success of our Christmas outreach video, The Other Story, which reached 27,000 people, we have worked with Will Small to create a second video – The Other Story of Easter. You can watch and share it here: www.otherstory.com.au

How you can help
As we approach Easter 2019, we’d like to ask you and your church to consider partnering with us again this year, as we commit ourselves to helping Australian Baptists share Jesus.
Our State Baptist Association leaders have made a video each for their State about the Easter Offering for 2019, and we have other resources to help churches inform their congregation about the work of Crossover, and collect up an offering. Head to www.crossover.org.au/easter-2019 to watch your state’s video and find out more.
We recognise that there are many demands on church finances these days, so we really appreciate the opportunity to partner with you as we seek to resource the body of Christ for effective mission.
