Miami Crossbridge Launches a Second Congregation

Miami Crossbridge - a church planting project supported by CTC - launched its second service in the Brickell section of downtown Miami on Easter Sunday.  

Crossbridge is led by Felipe Assis as head pastor and his brother Marcus Assis as worship pastor.  Church planting is a bit of a legacy in their family - as their father is a church planter and leader in their native city of Recife, Brazil.  

Crossbridge itself meets in a church building that was originally built by Immanuel Presbyterian Church in 1975 - a congregation planted by Terry Gyger, CTC's executive director of church planting.  Crossbridge is actually a replant of Immanuel Presbyterian Church.  Gyger says, "I am encouraged and inspired to see the facility come back to life and I'm encouraged too, that Crossbridge is flourishing by God's grace under Felipe's leadership."

About the first service at the Brickell campus, Felipe wrote, "I believe we had a successful launch with 126 ... I was praying for 100 and expecting about 75 so it was quite extraordinary to see God do it in a such a special way ... We're looking forward to what the Lord has reserved for Crossbridge and Brickell."
