The following individuals have graciously consented to provide their time and talents to the CrossWord Café.
The CrossWord Café/Chillicothe Youth Center is patterned after a Christian coffee house concept successfully pioneered by former Chillicothe youth pastor Brent Ressler, whose monthly program quickly outgrew the home basement where it was started and confirmed the need for an area teen center. In August 2001, after receiving support from several area churches, civic leaders and community organizations, the CrossWord Café/Chillicothe Youth Center opened the doors to our current location in downtown Chillicothe. Since then the Café has added activities, programs, and events for area youth. The CrossWord Café/Chillicothe Youth Center is a non-profit organization that continues to be supported by individuals, churches, Christian ministries and community organizations.
Kids need a place to belong. A place that they can feel safe and develop real relationships. At the cafe, we want kids to learn that God loves them.
