2021 is an exciting year for Crossover as we join forces with Global InterAction to host the biggest evangelism conference in our 30+ year history. We are looking to forward an event that is accessible to everyone, whether they attend in a local hub or online. This is just one of the ways in which we will be getting behind Baptist churches this year. (more…)
Thank You For Your Investment In Evangelism & Mission
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. In 2020 they have made a video for you to share with your congregation about the Easter Offering for Crossover:
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 to equip congregations for mission.
We recognise that there are many demands on church finances these days, especially given the Coronavirus pandemic. We really appreciate the opportunity to partner with you as we seek to resource the body of Christ for effective mission.
Many churches take up the offering in the lead up to Easter, others over the Easter weekend. Due to churches not meeting participating in the 2020 Offering for individuals is through our secure online giving portal.
Share The Gospel Through Story
We encourage you to share this video resource produced with Karl Faase and Olive Tree Media. It tells the compelling story of Australia’s first-ever World Sporting Champion who went from success to failure before an encounter with Christ that changed his life.
Here’s a special message from Karl Faase to help you understand the value of your investment in evangelism and mission through the Crossover Offering.
As followers of Jesus there are many moments in life that we look back upon which we acknowledge to be pivotal and significant in our faith journey, maturity and discipleship. One of those moments for me was the Emerge Evangelism Conference run by Crossover Australia. For me, it was an extremely beneficial time to network, gain further insight, and grow my own evangelistic strategy. (more…)
‘Discipling’ is one of those concepts that sits atop the lexicon of concepts Christians are in furious agreement on – in that like evangelism and mission, we regard discipling as an imperative. However it isn’t all that common to find a church that has a comprehensive system of discipling people, and that is often due to the lack of new believers coming to faith in our churches. (more…)
The purpose of Crossover’s annual Emerge Evangelism Conference is to affirm, invest in and equip emerging evangelists in each State (more…)
What does the church do with an evangelist? What is the role of an evangelist in the community and culture of 2017? These are some of the questions many churches wrestle with. We understand what to do with people who have pastoral gifts, and in fact most of the training of our pastors revolves around this one facet of local church ministry.
With this mind we gathered in Melbourne in late August with delegates from each state, for our annual Crossover Emerging Evangelists Conference. This conference is designed to encourage people from within our churches from all States across Australia who have been identified by their own local church leaders as having an evangelistic calling and gifting.

Hi, Karl Faase here, and I’d like to introduce to you a national campaign in the lead up to Easter in 2018. It will start on the 25 February and go through to Easter Sunday. This is a great opportunity to influence our communities with the message of Jesus. (more…)
How to maximise the missional potential of your children & family ministries
The NCLS has plotted the Australian Baptist movement over many years. Over the last decade the survey has highlighted the increased involvement of local churches in their local communities as they have purposed to be more missional. However over the same period the survey has also highlighted that our engagement in sharing the good news of Jesus has decreased. (more…)
