The Crossing Leadership
The Crossing is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Pastor Victor is our Lead Pastor. He and Susan, his wife of more than 25 years, have three daughters and they love hanging out with them. They planted The Crossing in October 2005. Victor has been involved in ministry for about 25 years. He is passionate about seeing people come alive in Jesus. It is his desire that every person come to a personal relationship with Jesus, daily walking, talking, and hanging out with Him.
Susan is our Co-Lead Pastor. She is in love with Jesus! Her passion is to "Love God and Love People". Her heart is to gather people who will also love God and love people, to learn what it is to be loved by God, and to share that same unconditional love with others which will change their lives. Susan has also become very passionate about living life together. It was not meant for us to become islands in an ocean, but to experience life together, encouraging each other, sharing in each other's joys and struggles, and helping others live life to the fullest. She encourages everyone around her, "DON'T DO LIFE ALONE!" Susan enjoys spending time with her husband, Victor, and their three girls, Tori, Emmye, and Bethany.
Don Kelley is one of our Associate Pastors. He and his wife, Mary, have six children and eight grandchildren. Don has been a part of The Crossing since its conception and has worked with the pastor, Victor Rowell, for many years in previous ministry opportunities. Don’s heart is to support the pastor, to develop relationships, serve the people of the church, to be involved in community outreach, and to reach the lost.
Mary serves the church both as an administrator but also loves to be a part of the church worship team.

They are discipling a new generation of Jesus followers and calling to life big destinies in the lives of the young.
