What a year 2016 was for our Cross Timbers family!  God blessed us, led us and provided in powerful ways.  All of the numbers and statistics contained in this report are just some of the ways He’s been at work here.  I want you to be reminded that

every number has a name,

every statistic has a story,

and every dollar represents a hope and help to someone in need.

I am honored to be a part of what He is doing!

Our Pathway shapes our ministry direction.  Over 1500 of our church family joined us on the Pathway and committed to the “Get In. Get Healthy.  Get Strong.  Get Going” process.  That is a great start.

I’m proud to talk about our growth in local outreaches like Fix My Ride and our annual coat drive.  Our Pastor Dongo School of Ministry is off to a great start. One of our first students now leads a growing, vibrant college ministry on our Denton campus.  You are making a difference.  We are better together.

This.  Is.  Us.

Honored to serve you,

Toby
