This position has been filled


Cross Mountain Church started in 1997 in Leon Springs, a community on the
outskirts of San Antonio, on January 12 by Pastor Jerry McNeill and Pastor Gary
Adams. It was a cold, icy day – but still over 100 people showed up for the first
service in Leon Springs Elementary. Cross Mountain would spend the next several
years moving from location to location, looking for a permanent place to call
home. In July of 2002, Cross Mountain purchased the land where the church is currently
located and started meeting in a red and white round tent on that property. In
October of that same year, Pastor Randy and Kelli Ayres moved their family to San
Antonio and started pastoring Cross Mountain. At that time there were about 35
adults attending Sunday services in the tent.In spite of the obstacles, by 2004 Cross Mountain grew to nearly 200 people while
meeting in the tent. In October of that year, they moved into a small auditorium in
the middle of their property. With God’s hand and favor on the church, CMC
continued to grow and impact the community.
Due to steady growth over the years, Cross Mountain continued to develop its
campus and built a new auditorium in 2013 that was larger and that could meet
the needs of the growth of the congregation. In addition to campus growth, this
season also saw a lot of staff growth as new staff was added to the team.
With continued growth and a vision to have an even bigger impact on the
community, Cross Mountain finished construction on a new Kids and Students
Facility called the HUB in 2021. With 32,000 square feet, an indoor sports court
and state of the art amenities, Cross Mountain was positioned for an incredible
future. Then in 2022, Cross Mountain celebrated its 25 year anniversary while

Pastor Randy and Kelli celebrated their 20 year mark as the pastors of this life-
giving church.

Today, Cross Mountain is a thriving, life-giving congregation in position for an
incredible future.
