Office Space, Equipment, and Supplies

Cross Over Ministries was incorporated as a Not-For-Profit Organization in Illinois on September 4, 2018. As a newly formed organization, we are in need of office space, equipment, and supplies. Donations of new or gently used equipment and supplies can be made by contacting the Ministry.

Meeting Space

Calvary Baptist Church of Hillsboro, Illinois has been our gracious host during the past few months as Cross Over Ministries was organizing. A huge heartfelt thank you for your support.

Beginning November 2018, Hillsboro Area Hospital has offered space for the Board of Cross Over Ministries to meet.

We look forward to working closely with our friends and partners to increase awareness of mental health services and opportunities in Montgomery County that foster healing and recovery for those in crisis.

Volunteers

Cross Over Ministries hosts a variety of events and other fundraisers to increase awareness of mental health services and opportunities that foster healing and recovery for those in crisis. Past Cross Over Ministries sponsored events have been, “The Ripple Effect” suicide awareness/prevention documentary and a community walk, “Out of the Darkness Into His Light” promoting Mental Health Awareness.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with future events, please contact us today!

Mental Health Training Opportunities

Cross Over Ministries is committed to promoting mental health awareness and wellness through training events and opportunities.

Each year, thousands of Americans are saying “yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, relative or neighbor. In 2018, Montgomery County received 180 calls regarding suicide, and hospitals in Hillsboro and Litchfield see one to two patients per day.

Spring of 2019, Cross Over Ministries hosted Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) Trainings in Hillsboro and Litchfield with continuing education units (CEUs) offered to medical providers.

Please check the events section to find training opportunities offered within the local community.


Community Awareness and Events

Cross Over Ministries will continue to offer events to engage the community and provide opportunities to engage in our mission.

We have arranged a Speaker Series for Montgomery County schools motivating students to seek help; and hosted a “High Five to Our Farmers” dinner.

Cross Over Ministries has hosted two showings of “The Ripple Effect”, a suicide-prevention film; and sponsored two community mental health awareness walks and breakfasts, themed “Out of the Darkness and into His Light”.

In collaboration with Montgomery County Health Department, Cross Over Ministries helped bring “Be Somebunny’s Ray of Hope” 5K walk/run to the community. Did you join us at the Litchfield Pickers Market in June 2019?
