about us

where we've been

In March of 1982, Crosslines Churches of the Joplin Area began with a mission to"work together across denominational lines to meet human needs in the name of Jesus." Crosslines Joplin started with the support of 10 churches desiring to eliminate the duplication of services while providing a centralized location to operate a food pantry and clothing bank.

where we're going

As our community's need for services grew, so did Crosslines Ministries. Today, we have more than 40 supporting churches, over 200 volunteers, and 10 part-time staff members. We just celebrated 42 years of service to the Joplin, Carl Junction and Webb City communities and look forward to many more years of serving God's people in need through church and community partnerships.

Need doesn't have a season.
Everyone encounters difficult times.
Sometimes they need help up.


“I became disabled 4 years ago due to an accident. Crosslines has been very helpful and provided me food for many meals. I may not have eaten otherwise. god bless those who donate."
