Pointing people to the cross of Jesus Christ

Pastor Rick Schwartz: Senior Pastor

Rick and his wife Jamie moved to Lima in the summer of 2011 to start a new church under the leadership of Grace Community Church. Under God's leading, CrossPoint Community Church started in February of 2012 on the north side of Lima with the vision to reach all kinds of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They believe that the local church, under the leadership of Jesus Christ, is the hope of the world! Rick holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministries and Biblical Studies from Taylor University, and a Master of Divinity Degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Rick loves the Lord Jesus Christ, his family, basketball, and coffee (in that order!)​
