Hi, my name is Pastor Mark. I am the newest member of Crossroad's staff.  I am the lead Pastor and have been since August 2016. After attending Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO I began ministering in Leighton, IA.  Ten plus years later God said "Des Moines is where you ought to be" so I moved my family up to Urbandale. Urbandale that is -- swimming pools and movie stars, well something like that.  Cara and I have three girls and a boy and we love this congregation!

Hi, my name is Winnie Rye and I am the church secretary.  I have been at this job for three years, but have been a member of Crossroads for about 30 years.  What do I love about our church?  The people!  It is a church family with many different members and personalities, who all come to worship our King and fellowship with others of like mind.  I worship here every week, and I work here daily.  Come and join us at Crossroads!  There really is a place for you here. 

Hi, my name is Brad Veenstra. I am the Education Director of our church.  My family consists of a wife and four kids -- they all keep me very busy. When I have time, I enjoy golfing, spending time with my family, and hosting pool parties.  I enjoy working with all the people at Crossroads and I'm constantly amazed at how people continue to step up when needed.
