Elders We are convinced from Scripture that Christ's church is to be led by a plurality of godly, qualified men whom the Bible calls elders. Elders are undershepherds answerable to the Chief Shepherd for the spiritual welfare of a local church body. And so Crossway Fellowship is led by an Elder Team, a group of men committed to love and serve and teach and care for the people of Crossway Fellowship.

John Lynn

High School Youth Leader
John serves the high school youth group through leadership and teaching. His goal is to make Christ known in a deep and personal way both in and through the youth group. When not doing that, you'll find him hiking, dancing, and pursuing a degree in divinity. He's friendlier than his picture may imply and would love to talk to you on Sunday. Your kids' misbehavior is likely his fault.
