Andy Parks

Lead pastor

Pastor Andy has 22 years of full-time ministry experience. He and his wife Michelle were lead pastors for 10 years in Kansas City, KS, and then served for 8 years as the Assemblies of God Kansas Ministry Network Executive Assistant to the Superintendent and the Network Outreach Director before moving to Paola.


Andy and Michelle have a desire for reaching people who are not yet followers of Jesus, those disenfranchised with the church, and their community. Their hope is to guide others into a relationship with Jesus through the Father's presence and discipleship.

As the Worship Pastor, Brendan believes that the Church as a body is called to a life of sacrifice, meaning obedience, and that obedience begins with worship. Brendan has been leading worship from a young age and joined the Cross Point team in the Fall of 2016 after graduating from Evangel University.

Brendan and his wife Kacey live in Olathe with their son, enjoy playing with their dog, and writing music with friends.
