Our Story

The Cross Church started in 2008 as a church plant of Grace Life of the Shoals (in Muscles Shoals Alabama). As a church we started meeting in Pensacola FL in Pastor Jon Mark's living room with 9 people before moving to the University campus (UWF) in 2009. We remained on campus for a few years ministering the gospel and making disciples, until 2012, we became increasingly burdened for the vast needs in the inner city parts of Pensacola we replanted the church in the Brownsville community. We remain in this area of South/central Pensacola for our Sunday worship services and community outreach, but throughout the week scatter for discipleship in our City Groups (meeting around the city). Our constant desire from the start has been to glorify God by making disciples who enjoy Jesus together, both locally and globally.
