Greg Howard

Senior Pastor

Greg Howard is the Senior pastor and founder of The Cross Church. He loves the ocean, beach volleyball and golf, sometimes drives an old jag (He inherited it from his dad!), is a photographer, loudly cheers for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and once won a free trip to Costa Rica in a “closest to the pin” competition.

Greg’s story is a long one of God’s grace and mercy. He became a real Jesus follower while working as a professional Fashion model in Paris and New York.  After working in the fashion industry for 15 years, Greg got called into ministry and worked for 15 years at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale before venturing out in faith with a small, but amazing team of people to plant The Cross Church in 2014. He is married to his beautiful wife Gaby and the two of them want to reach  people with the grace, love and hope of Jesus.

Alex Rollefson

Worship Leader

Alex is our Worship leader at The Cross. We were super excited that God led Alex to sell his business and move down here from Wisconsin. No, Alex didn't move to sunny Florida just to lead our worship team (Ryan and Heather are family), but we are still the ones who get blessed every week! Alex's passion for worship started early. He began playing guitar in 6th grade and led worship at school, church, and various teams throughout his college years. Alex loves coffee, all sports, and the Packers (yes, another Packer's fan/ CheeseHead!).

ASHLEIGH’S LIFE

Ashleigh, was Pastor Greg's wife of 22 years. She helped to plant The Cross Church in 2014. Ashleigh went to heaven in October of 2014. She had an incredible impact on many lives and discipled many women who now attend the cross. We will miss her deeply, but her spirit and vision will live on in all that we do at the cross. 

Ashleigh’s beauty was not just on the outside, but that beauty flowed even more so from within.  Our church has been forever impacted by the life Ashleigh led. Her life and legacy will live on through the lives she impacted that now attend the Cross. You can get a glimpse into who Ashleigh was by watching the video below of her memorial service. It was a sad day, but we were able to honor her and all that she did for Jesus. We all miss her, but we know she is dancing in heaven, praising Jesus with a whole new, healthy body.

Prayer // Praise

We believe in the power of prayer and celebration. We'd love if you send us a prayer request or praise so that we can join in praying together. The Cross Staff Team intentionally reads and prays through all requests on a weekly basis.
