Sherman has blessed our lives tremendously from the 1st service of Liberty almost 10 years ago.  He showed up, introduced himself and asked how they could help us!  He dispatched a musician who assisted at Liberty for about 4-6 months!  He continues to mentor, bless and encourage us to this day!  We praise God over and over for Sherman.  Lovingly, Peter and Diane Robinson

Dear Sherman - Thank you for your Kingdom-first mentality, and years of faithful service. I wish I had more opportunities to learn from you. A couple things stand out: In my first year at CR, during a Tri-City thanksgiving service at your church, you honored Pastor Paul and Crossroads, and said that anyone who wanted to go to help CR from your church had your blessings. Also, when Paul was on sabbatical, I left a message asking advice, and you called me right back. Thanks for the example. - Love Dwayne Petty

Dear Sherman, You have been a blessing to Crossroads Church and to me as well. I thank you God for you and I am grateful for how you influenced me and helped me to be a better pastor and person. - Blessings in Christ, Paul Mcgovern

Praise the Lord! Thank you for all the work you've done for our church! May you life be a blessing for everyone you meet. Whenever I though my heart is filled with the grace of God. Thank you again! - Pastor Sung Wee
