Investing in Future Generations

Over the past 13+ years, Power Cross has witnessed God being almighty, all powerful, all loving, and life giving. His hands have clearly been placed on the outcome and growth of this ministry, and because of who He is and what He continues to do through Power Cross, we believe in the Greater Things He has promised us and the cities we continue to reach.
“There is no one like our God, for greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city.”
This is a quote from the song, God of the City, by Chris Tomlin, which is the voice behind the heart and purpose of this project. As we continue to work with children whose futures are less than hopeful, we are constantly reminded of his promises- “You're the light in this darkness, You're the hope to the hopeless, You're the peace to the restless.”

We believe in making a difference in the lives of the children we work with everyday. They come to us with shattered hearts, splintered spirits, and bleak futures, and we change it. God changes, heals, and produces a new identity in them. The change we witness in each child is uplifting and promising, and a true testimony to the goodness of our King. We believe in the Greater Things to come for each participant of Power Cross, and we are ready to see God move even more as we prepare to enter the next stages of ministry growth.

Where God has led us, we have followed. First Statesville, then Salisbury, and now beyond.

Through the Greater Things project, we are investing back into our community by expanding our reach. Our vision is to continue to raise up and disciple young men who will have the power to reshape their cities. We are raising young men who will lead their home and create a future for not only themselves, but everyone involved in their lives. The change starts with them, and continues to pour out and overflow, causing a ripple effect throughout the community and beyond.

SALISBURY FACILITIES

In 2017, Power Cross took a leap of faith and launched its second site to serve the young men of Salisbury. In less than 18 months, we have quadrupled the number of young men we are serving, and are adding new participants almost daily. The temporary facility has been a tremendous blessing and launching pad for Power Cross to embed into the community.

Establishing a permanent site in Salisbury increases the size, scale, and reach that Power Cross can have in Salisbury. This new facility will help to revitalize a part of the community that now sits vacant, as it also leads to a revitalization of the hopes and dreams of the youth we serve. This permanent site would allow Power Cross to serve over 300 young men in Salisbury alone.

STATESVILLE FACILITIES

The Statesville site has outgrown its current facilities. The future vision for expansion includes completion of a football field and construction of a multi-use building (to include an indoor basketball court, space for two wrestling mats, locker room, showers, a larger academic center that would also function as a meeting room, and staff offices).

The expanded facilities would allow Power Cross to increase our daily programming by a minimum of 20% and help us better serve the young men who call Statesville Power Cross, home. Power Cross owns all of the land needed for this facility expansion, allowing us to begin the transformation once we are funded.

OUR VISION FORWARD

We believe there are literally hundreds of communities whose young men could be positively impacted by Power Cross. Through our initial phase of expansion, we have been able to create a model that can be duplicated, and we’re getting ready to place Power Cross in a position to expand our impact in new ways and in new communities.

The command given to us, “Go and make disciples...”

Creating disciples is the daily goal of Power Cross. Over many months we have met with architects, contractors, and lawyers to lay out and create an expansion for both of our current sites. Through this expansion, we would truly create Discipleship & Development Centers that will have the capacity to invest in the lives of the young men we serve. God has been with us every step the way, and we see greater things yet to come.
