Crossroads began in 2016 with a community service, on Sunday afternoons, in a small building downtown Poplar Bluff. The intent was to be a place for people, that might feel uncomfortable walking into a church, to come meet Jesus. The goal was and still is to lead people to Christ, help them grow and get them connected to a local church body. After only a short while the group was too big and moved to a larger facility. Again, outgrowing this building, Crossroads was offered the use of the conference center behind the Valley Plaza shopping center near Gamma labs for their Sunday service for a few years. Here the services were streamed live each week on the Conference center website Moriahranch.com. You can watch archived services on this site. We now have moved to our own Crossroads Worship Center located at our facility at 416 South C St. in Poplar Bluff. During this time of transition the great need for a local facility to help men find the WAY out of their addictions was made very evident. Thus, the 6 month faith based residential facility was born. This too has grown to the point of moving to a bigger facility on C street in Poplar Bluff, MO. At this property Crossroads is able to house 20 men. God is definitely moving and growing Crossroads Ministry. Crossroads Ministry also sponsor a Transition House for those graduates needing a time of encouragement and accountability as they step into their new life.
Our Directors Jimi and LaDonna Waggoner
Jimi and LaDonna Waggoner are full time employees of the ministry. Jimi is the director/ Pastor and the man with the vision. His past has given him insight to the tricks of the enemy and he is letting God use this to change men’s lives all over this area. LaDonna is equally called and finds herself busy taking care of the business of the ministry and taking the men to their court dates and such. Their family lives on sight and basically on call 24/7. Because of this occasionally extra help is hired in order to free them for conferences and such. Each morning at 6:00 am the men have a group Bible study to start their day. Each night the men are taken to a faith based recovery group at various churches around the Poplar Bluff area. Crossroads is governed by a board of directors who meet monthly to attend to the business of the program.
