Founded in 1984, Crossover is a national initiative of Australian Baptist Ministries. For nearly 40 years we have been providing encouragement, training and resources to help Australian Baptists share Jesus.

Encouragement is so vital, because until believers’ hearts are stirred by God’s heart for the lost, they won’t go far, even with the best equipping and resources.

Training is highly strategic too – we’ve all seen the difference between mission done in a loving, Christlike, thoughtful way, and the opposite. We offer both direct training to churches (by invitation) and training resources.

Resources for direct use in outreach and evangelism are also very valuable. We seek to produce and recommend ones that are useful, relevant and effective. The right tool at the right time can make all the difference.

Crossover is entirely funded from the grass roots of our movement – individuals and churches who believe in the vitality of sharing Jesus – that the surest way to the kinder, safer, fairer and more sustainable world that we all desire is for more and more people to meet Jesus, find their place in God’s family, and be transformed by His Spirit.

Whether your strength is in sharing the news of Jesus, developing creative resources, praying, supporting financially, leading a church, generally helping out – we’d love you to connect with us and help us help Australian Baptists share Jesus.
