“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”

WHAT IS CROSS CONNECTION?

In 2016 when Grace Hmong Alliance Church did not have a building yet, there were many challenges facing our Church:

  • Attrition of church membership.
  • Lack of a formal communication process between ministries.
  • Lack of a social media presence.
  • Disjointed attendance tracking, guest integration and greeting processes.
  • We had younger generations and older generations that couldn’t understand each other due to language barrier.
    • One spoke strictly English and the Other spoke strictly Hmong

As a result of this, one of our esteem Elder and GA member that year, (Jeff Sponcia) started to do research and data gathering. That summer he started to:

  1. Obtain guest contact information as they came in.
  2. Count and gather Sunday service attendance total.
  3. Started a small greeting committee with a group of volunteers.
  4.  Partner with other ministry and Elders on the GA to start the conversation of having a ministry that could address these many challenges.

After much research, prayer, analysis, and with the authorization from the GHAC Governing Board, God blessed our Church with a brand new Ministry unlike any other:

Cross Connection consist of three main aspects:
