Charles and Amy Cross
"Serving the Lord with Greater Europe Mission"
God called Charles and Amy to serve Him in France after several years of marriage. Leaving behind careers in management consulting and elementary school teaching, Charles and Amy embarked on their adventure together for the Lord in March 1998. They committed to an initial three years - the first year was in full-time language school, and then they helped in a small church plant for a couple years on the near north side of Paris. After that initial short term, they felt that God was calling them to serve Him in France long-term and Charles was able to pursue a masters in missions at Wheaton College. Returning to the field, they moved to the Oise, a little further north of Paris, an area with few evangelical churches and a great need for Christian witness. Charles was later asked to serve as field leader for Greater Europe Mission in France, which he did for 10 years. He later became a regional leader, overseeing the ministries in several countries of Western Europe. God blessed them with 6 children along the way!
Where We Work
Having served with GEM in France for almost 20 years, God has now called our family to serve in a different role State-side. In 2017, Charles became the VP of Mobilization, leading to mobilize more people to get involved with GEM's work in Europe, whether it be through prayer, service or giving. Amy works alongside Charles to support his role.
They are always looking for more people to join with them who will PRAY, GO and GIVE, so that Europe will be reached with the Gospel.
