Church At The Cross Leadership

Pastor Barry was appointed to serve as Church At The Cross's Associate Pastor and Deacon at the Church's conception in April of 2015. When God moved Pastor Steve to another church and state it was only natural for Pastor Barry to assume the position of Senior Pastor

Chuck Van Arsdale

Worship Leader

Chuck has been around the world a couple of times working with and learning from some pretty amazing pastors, musicians and worship leaders. He has over thirty years of Audio/Video and Performing experience. and over ten years experience as a guest and associate pastor.

    He met his wife Tiffany while he was traveling with an evangelist and she was volunteering. It was love at first site but it took him two years to admit it!  They got engaged in August of 1998 and married in November of 1998 and have been ministering together ever since. When not ministering they can be found watching Florida Gator sports, Star Trek, or Star Wars!

    John 4:23-24 - Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
