Crossover Helena 2024

Jeff HessingerAll Enews, Strengthening Team

State capitol building in Helena, Montana.

Crossover is an evangelistic event being held on Saturday, October 5, immediately following Refresh, Montana’s annual meeting. Many churches throughout Helena are planning outreach events the Saturday after Refresh. Churches throughout Helena are also encouraged to plan a Harvest Day on the Sunday after Refresh.



Begin now to pray for Montana Baptists that they will have a heart to come to Helena from near and far to join together to lift up the CROSS of Jesus OVER Helena on October 5 and 6. Ask God to stir the hearts of pastors and churches throughout the Helena area to host a strategic outreach event and to convict churches throughout the state to take a weekend mission trip to Helena to join the host churches.


Your church can host your own CROSSOVER outreach event. Decide what works best for your church to reach your community. You are joining other MTSBC churches throughout Helena in simultaneous outreach events throughout the city.


CROSSOVER provides many opportunities for churches throughout Montana to join a Helena host church on Saturday. You will be joining churches that need your help with their outreach event. This is a great opportunity to put together a mission team from your church.


Sunday, October 6th is Harvest Day for those hosting CROSSOVER outreach events and for those who seek to have a specific Harvest Sunday such as Friends Day to reach the lost. The goal is for lost people to come forward to profess faith in Christ and to follow up with baptism. Contact Jeff Hessinger for STEPS to PLAN a HARVEST DAY.
