Crossroads Presbyterian Fellowship was planted by Covenant Presbyterian Church in February, 2003. Crossroads began with the goal of bringing the Gospel in word and deed to the mid-county region of St. Louis, centering on the Maplewood/Richmond Heights area.
In August, 2005, we were able to purchase our own building, which was formerly owned by Maplewood Christian Church. In 2007, Crossroads began some projects to increase the size of our sanctuary but even with the expansion of the sanctuary, the leadership of the church began to sense a call to look to begin either two services or start a site plant in another community of St. Louis...
In 2001, the English ministry of The Korean Presbyterian Church called its first full-time head pastor to begin a new church plant. The church adopted the name Grace Presbyterian Church (GPC) while still meeting at KPC in Kirkwood. As the church grew to approximately 120 worshippers, in the spring of 2006, GPC became particularized in the Missouri Presbytery of the PCA. It was at this time the church also became more noticeably pan-Asian and not just a Korean-American congregation…
In the summer of 2008, as Grace Presbyterian was seeking a new Sr. Pastor, the
Lord opened the doors through conversations with Crossroads Presbyterian
Fellowship to consider a possible merger. After much prayer and many meetings,
the leaders from Crossroads and the leaders from Grace felt the Lord was
calling the churches to merge into one. Both churches shared similar core
values, shared a vision for a church plant in the Olivette/Creve Coeur area,
and complemented each other’s strengths and weaknesses well. The Lord confirmed
this calling as both congregations voted overwhelmingly to approve the merger
in April 2009, and the official joining & receiving service took place on
June 7th at the Maplewood location.
