Meet Pastor Brad & Courtney Hylton
We have lived in Lake Mary since we were married in October 1999 and began attending Crossings in June 2006. Courtney is a graduate of Stetson University and Brad is a graduate of Seminole State College. We have 2 girls, Jordan and Jade. The warmth and love we felt at Crossings on that first day was overwhelming and we knew right away we wanted this to be our church family.
Meet Pastor Chris & Debby Dearth
Pastor Chris Dearth has been working with children since 1994 where he first served as Children’s Pastor in the Columbus, Ohio area. He and his wife, Debby and their three children, Sarah, Hannah, and Jonah, moved to Orlando in 2002, where they immediately became involved with the children’s ministry. Pastor Chris and Debby served as Children’s Pastors for 12 years at Church in the Son. They have recently accepted the position as Children's and Family Pastors at Crossings Community Church and are excited to reach this generation for Jesus! They are the creators of GAK (God's Anointed Kids) ministries which includes their original weekly curriculum.
Meet Pastor Jon & Kelly Whited
Pastor Jon & Kelly love to spend time worshiping the Lord! With their gifts in music and art, they enjoy leading people into God’s presence where the incredible happens.
In 2009, God called Pastor Jon to be the Audio Director of Church In The Son in Orlando, Florida. During this time, he devoted his gifts in music to Jesus and learned how to lead worship. He also developed a love for disciplining people and global missions. In 2012, he and Kelly became the Global Missions Directors and built the missions ministry from the ground up. Now, no matter where they are serving, they desire to see people become active in establishing God’s kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Meet Evonne Meagher
Director of Missions
My family and I came to Crossings in 2005. When I first came to Crossings I served as a volunteer for a number of years in children and youth ministries before joining the ministry staff. In July, 2010 I organized the first Crossings mission trip to Honduras for a team of 30 people. It was the beginning of an exciting and life-changing foreign mission program for both the church and all of those involved.
Meet Sheree Whited
Director of Communication
I have been attending Crossings Community Church since 1998 and I have been blessed to work for Crossings since 2003.
Growing up as a Pastor's daughter, church has always been a huge part of my life. The importance of serving and being connected in a local church body was planted in me at a very young age. Therefore, I have been serving in church ministries since I was old enough to participate. You name it, I've served in it!
Aside from serving in various ministries at Crossings, I'm grateful to have the opportunity to use my gifts to benefit this awesome church!

I have grown up in ministry as my father was a Pastor for the United Church of Christ for many, many years until he retired. I am fortunate to have my mom and dad attend Crossings with me and my family.
