April 7, 2019 at 5:00pm, Crosstown Fellowship Church, located at 222 North St., Cleveland, MS, will celebrate its grand opening with a celebration entitled “We Are Family.”
Delivering the message that night will be Dr. Dolphus Weary. Dr. Dolphus Weary, for over 30 years, has spoken on college campuses, in churches, seminaries, and conferences around the country about his struggle to escape from racism and poverty in rural Mississippi and what it means to respond to God’s call on one’s life. Dolphus grew up in rural poverty in Mississippi.
He became one of the first black students ever to attend and graduate from the all-white Los Angeles Baptist College, now The Masters College, with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology in 1969. He received several other degrees and distinctions including, but not limited to, a Master of Religious Education degree from Los Angeles Baptist Seminary in 1971, being ordained as a minister in 1973, a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1978, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1997.
Crosstown Fellowship Church is a, intentionally, multi-ethnic church in the Mississippi Delta with a mission of restoring diversity and unity through authentic faith in Christ. Racial reconciliation and reaching the unchurched and de-churched are the primary focuses of Crosstown Fellowship Church.
Crosstown Fellowship Church meets every Sunday at 5:00pm for service and is currently working on several ways to engage our communities in developing healthy and fruitful relationships.
