The lead pastor at one of the Tri-State’s largest churches has been fired.
Crossroads Christian Church lead pastor Patrick Garcia was fired this week. Sources tell us the teaching pastor, Rick Kyle, was asked to resign, or be fired too.
The church posted on Facebook that the decision to fire Garcia was, “due primarily to philosophical differences in church leadership.”
The Elders of Crossroads Christian Church have announced that a search will begin immediately for a new lead/senior pastor. This is not a result of any moral failure on the part of the most recent Lead Pastor, Patrick Garcia. This decision was due primarily to philosophical differences in church leadership. Teaching Pastor, Rick Kyle, will also be leaving the church. We wish nothing but the best for these leaders who will be pursuing new ministry roles. We affirm our remaining Crossroads pastors and staff, knowing that they will continue to minister with excellence in the communities we serve. Our vision remains steadfast “To connect everyone, everywhere to Jesus by multiplying leaders, campuses, and churches.”
