after months of consideration, the CrossWorld Board of Directors has decided to relocate the mission’s headquarters to Kansas City, MO. The move should be completed by early 2010. Why?
1) CrossWorld will share a campus with another like-minded mission board, Avant Ministries. Although both missions will retain their unique identities, there will be some shared services such as information technology and finance – which will dramatically cut overhead costs for both mission agencies.
2) The shared campus will have more space for growth than the current CrossWorld campus. It will also have the facilities to host large groups (for training, conferences, etc) easily. CrossWorld will build a new office building, but will share the training facilities and guesthouse services with Avant. Here’s a view of the campus from Google Maps:
