Pastor Bobby and Wanda Alger founded Crossroads in 1998 after pastoring and ministering in the central Shenandoah Valley for over 6 years. Feeling the call to "pastor a community", their vision has always been to see the local community of believers work together towards transforming revival. Building relationships with other pastors and marketplace leaders has been a foundational value from the start and consistent pursuit.
Believing that a church is only as healthy as its leaders, Bobby and Wanda seek to provide the helps necessary for believers to be whole, free, and fully empowered in their gifts and call, starting at home and then in the marketplace. Through the years, Crossroads has provided training and resources in prayer counseling, freedom and deliverance ministries, marriage enrichment, spiritual gifts, and various forms of leadership training.
Bobby's gift of teaching and heart to disciple believers has resulted in a recent book entitled, "Living a Changed Life" (2015). He and Wanda have also written "Making Room for His Presence", a 21-day Community Fast Devotional Guide (2015). Wanda received her Masters in Church Music from Oral Roberts University in 1991 and Bobby received his Masters of Divinity from Oral Roberts University in 1992.
Wanda is a recognized Five-Fold Prophetic Minister with Dove Christian Fellowship International and is a Field Correspondent with Intercessors for America, based in Purcellville, Virginia. She is a contributor to Charisma magazine online and also writes a weekly blog (www.wandaalger.me).
