Urban outreach

Bridgeport Rescue Mission

The Bridgeport Rescue Mission demonstrates the love of God to hungry, homeless and addicted people throughout Fairfield County, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Crossroads joins with the Bridgeport Rescue Mission to embrace the urban poor. We run a Mobile Kitchen every Tuesday evening, sharing God’s love and serving meals to people in the PT Barnum Community.

Grace Community Education Center

The Grace Community Education Centre (GCEC) is a primary school that provides free quality education, daily food and clothing to children of the Njathaini (Ngomongo) Village of Nairobi, Kenya. The school cares for 115 children, ranging from age 3 to grade 5. 

Without the GCEC school, these children would live each day on the streets of the village, without proper nutrition, education, clothing or care. They would be left on their own to survive in a village teeming with sexual abuse, drugs, voodoo and witchcraft. With GCEC, we can educate the next generation in a safe & loving environment, provide food and basic healthcare, and change their lives through the words and love of Jesus Christ.


After meeting Grace founder Pastor Girum Haile in 2008, GCEC USA partnered with him in his vision for the school and the Njathaini village. Our involvement includes hands-on trips to the village, education, training, healthcare, economic and job development, as well as raising funds for the school to operate.

Our shared dream with Pastor Girum is to break the generational cycle of accepted evils in this village by eventually transforming this primary school into a full boarding school. GCEC USA was organized to help realize this dream.

within crossroads

Each person is uniquely wired by God in His image. Part of that image is the desire and need to work. Within each person is also a longing to be a part of something bigger than one's self. Serving within Crossroads is a great way to meet these needs and desires. There are opportunities to do everything from teaching children to setting up chairs to leading small group Bible studies.
