Our Mission & Story
Crossover Ministries International (The Crossover CUPS Mission) is a 501(c)3 non profit organization and was founded in 1989 by Executive Director, Jack Eason. Jack felt called to start a ministry that encouraged, equipped, and enriched the lives of people; and through the years Crossover has taken many forms to do just that. We have reached out to students and young adults through radio, television, and camps all over the country.
During our camp ministry in the mid 1990's, Jack met Mike Williams. Mike would come in and kick off the week of our summer camps, breaking down barriers with laugher to allow students to hear God's voice.
Mike continued to tour doing comedy, but then went on a trip to the Dominican in 2008; his heart was changed and he was challenged not just to ask God to do something, but to be the SOMEONE who did something. So, he founded the Cups of Cold Water Project. Soon after, he invited Jack Eason to come see the work of the mission.
Now, Crossover Cups focus to enriching the lives of families in the Third World.
God has allowed us to enrich the lives of people all over the world. We are so thankful that we have the privilege to serve God. We are excited to see what the Lord will do in and through this ministry. We thank all of our friends and partners all over the world who support us prayerfully and financially.
The Dominican Project
Just 90 minutes off the coast of Florida by plane sits an island most know from what they see in tourist magazines, and videos of spectacular beaches. It's that same island where the Dominican Republic is located, ranked #4 in the world for human trafficking. The goal of Crossover Cups is to educate young girls (and boys) and be proactive before they enter a lifestyle of human trafficking and prostitution by teaching them life skills, English, and the love of Jesus.
