We as Cross Roads Community of LAFGC believe that missions is the practical focal point of our community. This includes ministry within our local church by making disciples, and ministry outside our local church through supporting various missionaries and engaging in short-term summer missions (STSM).
Missionary Paul supports his parents, who run the Chonburi Missions center in Chonburi, Thailand. The center consists of an on-site church and an orphanage called Home of Grace (which our members also currently support financially). They also partner with other missionaries in Thailand.
Missionary Kilang is the founder of the HelpLive organization.

Missionary Joshua and his family have built and are maintaining a school in Guinea. Missionary Joshua himself is dedicated to “M4 missions”–missions that aim to go to “the ends of the earth,” where the Gospel has not yet been preached before.

Missionary Sung Park is currently serving in New Delhi, India. He moved his ministry recently from Chennai, and is currently in the process of planting a church.
Short Term Summer Missions
As of 2017, we have sent short-term summer mission teams to Thailand for about 6 years.
Previous teams have also served to encourage global missionaries in India and New Guinea.
On the first Saturday of every month, our church goes out to downtown Los Angeles. After Early Morning Prayer Meeting (EMPM), we all head out to Skid Row where we serve food, share from the Bible, provide haircuts, and interact with the people there.
Once a month, we go out on Saturdays to clean up the streets of our local community and bless our neighbors.
