Missions & Outreach Director
The Friend family came as a missional volunteers to help start Crossroads in July 1995, and then Nancy joined the staff the following December. She is married to Chip, and their family expanded from 2 children (Matt and Leigh) to 4 by adding their spouses (Sharon and Jason), plus 3 grandchildren: Phebe, Kyleigh and Paxton. Their favorite past time is spending time together at the beach in their RV.
Nancy balances her time in the Missions Ministry between local and foreign Christian outreach ministries. She looks for opportunities, and organizes outreach opportunities where our church family members can help meet the needs of the ministries and missionaries that we support. Opportunities include serving meals to homeless people, doing home repairs, serving at a free medical clinic to going on a mission team to help the missionaries with their ministry outreach.
