Crossover Worship, a interdenominational church service for the entire community, was held on Sunday, September 16 at the Ozarks Amphitheater. Organizers estimate about 2000 people attended the service, representing more than twenty five area churches. Eleven local churches actually redirected their Sunday morning congregations to the Amphitheater in order to celebrate unity. The 15 member worship team was made up of vocalists and musicians from the participating churches. Many attendees commented that it was the best band ever to grace the amphitheater stage. Pastor Dylan Robinson from The Well church in Springfield, MO was the speaker. His message of “Better Together” based on Ephesians 4 from the Bible was exactly in line with the vision of unity for Crossover Worship. Many of those in attendance commented that, in this very divided world, it was awesome to see so many local area people and churches all together celebrating their common faith, rather than focusing on differences. This totally supports the vision of Crossover – “Building a bridge to community with music and hope”.
Organizers of the Crossover Christian Music Festival believe that the Festival’s return to the amphitheater is very likely in the fall of 2019, with a Friday and Saturday festival, followed by another Sunday morning Crossover Worship community-wide service. The group will begin raising funds immediately for the 2019 event.
