Sylvia Pounders | email: email@example.com
Sylvia, PT and their children, Micah, and Marissa, started CrossPointe Church in their living room in March of 2004. Sylvia has been the Business Administrator since 2008 and works diligently to keep CrossPointe compliant and current with tax law and IRS requirements. She loves her family but is a little bit partial to her only grandchild, Lennox, who calls her Mimi.
Before moving to Fayetteville in August of 2000, she was the bookkeeper for the City of St Marys, GA and enjoyed her time in the Finance Department. Shortly after arriving in Fayetteville, she became the bookkeeper for Building Blocks Daycares which had 3 locations at the time. Most people who attend CrossPointe will never know it, but Sylvia is the one person who keeps the wheels turning here. She loves this church and enjoys seeing people who are far from God connect with faith.

Bro G. and his wife, Vernette have a beautiful, blended family. She brought 3 girls into their marriage, and he came with 4 boys. Finally, after years of raising kids together, they are empty nesters and loving their newly discovered life together. Bro G. and Vernette have called CrossPointe their home for over seven years.
CrossPointe’s Mission Statement also breaks down our organizational structure. Our mission is to help all people DISCOVER, DEVELOP and DO life with and for Jesus.
- DISCOVER means we help people connect with faith in irresistible environments such as Adult Worship, SQUAD Student Ministry and KidsPointe.
- DEVELOP means we help them grow in their faith by providing Small Groups, as well as our CP classes and discipleship programs.
- DO means we help them find a place to serve at CrossPointe using the Spiritual Gifts God gave them.
Each one of the 3D ministry environments at CrossPointe has an oversight Pastor. Bro G is our “DO” oversight pastor. That means his job is to help people find their spiritual gifts and use them in the right place at CrossPointe. When that happens, we operate at a much more efficient level and serve the Kingdom of God more effectively.
Bro. G has been a tremendous blessing to CrossPointe and provides incredible insight helping us become the ministry God is calling us to be.

Before stepping out into full time ministry, PT worked for O’neal Engineering in Ft. Myers, FL. He was a designer with a promising career. But God began to tug on his heart and soon he and Sylvia were traveling the Southeastern United States holding crusades and revivals. A few years later, they accepted their first senior pastor position in Bradenton, FL. They also served in the same position in Ocoee, FL, Spring Hope, NC, St. Marys, GA and finally landed in Fayetteville, NC. Each of these churches were part of the same denomination.
After almost 18 ½ years in the same organization, the door opened for PT and his family to start CrossPointe, a non-denominational church. PT says CrossPointe wandered in the wilderness for six long years before finally developing a ministry strategy that would reach thousands of people who were far from God.
Today, CrossPointe strategically targets unchurched, de-churched and done-with-church people who need a safe, welcoming, and friendly environment to explore faith and connect with God. We are reaching people with no church background who would never give traditional church a chance. So far, over 2,000 people have made the decision at CrossPointe to follow Jesus.
PT is a visionary who is always looking for the next step God is inviting us to take. He insists faith will always be a factor at CrossPointe.
“If our vision can be accomplished without faith, it isn’t big enough. God is calling us to get out of the boat and walk on water. We can’t do that without Him!” ~ PT
