Celebrate with us the amazing ways God has been working to advance His Kingdom.

The vision for the Community of the Cross (CoC) is that it would be a place of encounter with Jesus Christ for prayer, equipping, and sending.

The vision from the beginning has been as a place that would support witnesses to Jesus Christ and the growing of the Church worldwide through providing a context where Acts 1:8 may be fulfilled.


The Rev. Dr. Brad Long and The Rev. Dr. Frank Drake share about a most amazing move of the Holy Spirit.

Over the last several weeks we have seen this happening at a series of events where the Holy Spirit has been poured out. May 16-20 we hosted the Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit conference in which we had 30 Indonesian pastors join with 40 other pastors and leaders from Canada, USA and UK, as well as a bishop from the newly birthed nation of Southern Sudan and a Dutch Reformed South African pastor serving a dynamic fellowship in Dubai.

What united us all was the focus on Jesus Christ and the commitment to grow the Church according to the means given us, which is the Holy Spirit. I was deeply moved, indeed overwhelmed, as I saw taking place the fulfillment of the vision of equipping leaders from the nations to take part in advancing the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit.
