My name is Ashelie Skalicky. My husband and I have been attending Cross Culture Church for almost 3 years. In these 3 years I have came to really understand God's Purpose for my life. I was baptized in Oct 2016, my beautiful daughter was dedicated to the Lord in June of 2017, and I have been serving as a leader on the women’s ministry team.
I strive to be the one to reach out to women in our neighborhood, invite their families to church, and introduce them to my family. I want them to find a home and the great news of Jesus. A woman is 75 percent more likely to continue to come to church if she knows three women’s names that attend that church. I love our mission; To be great neighbors who display and declare the good news of Jesus Christ. We do this by being United, Invested, and living Beyond Sunday.
I live in Green Valley Ranch, a multi ethnic community in Denver Colorado, where 500,000 people reside in a 10 mile radius. Green Valley Ranch is a developing area that is expected to be the next Denver Tech Center in 10 years. Of those 500,000 people 490,000 people don’t have the hope of Jesus Christ or a church family. 38% of the 500,000 people are single parent homes. I grew up in a single parent home where my mother worked 3 to 4 jobs to put food on the table for my three siblings and I. It was very rare that my family went to church. We knew about Jesus, but it was hard for my mother to get us to church when she continuously worked to provide. We also did not go to a church in our community so it was hard to create a church family and be involved. I believe things would have been easier for my mother with church family support, like I see at Cross Culture Church.
Cross Culture Church has been able to bring me on part-time as the executive assistant and I feel the Lord has been calling me to come on full-time as the director of operations, and to raise $47,000 by June 1st, 2019. As the director of operations I will be helping Cross Culture Church organize and structure in a way that extends its reach to bring the hope of Jesus Christ and making disciples in our community. I would love for you to consider praying and giving towards this endeavor. There are two ways to donate:
