Crusade for Christ 2019

Crusade for Christ WebsiteFacebook Page

 

 

The Crusade for Christ is a national effort designed to save souls and strengthen local congregations of the Churches of Christ. Every other year, for the last 40 years, Christians around the nation have come together in a selected city to worship, seek the lost, restore the fallen and fellowship.  For 2019, Fort Worth is the city selected for the Crusade for Christ. The 2019 theme is “That We May All Be One”.
