Touching Lives is an international broadcast ministry featuring Cross Pointe Lead Pastor, Dr. James Merritt. Nearly 20 years after its founding, Touching Lives uses a wide array of technologies to share Dr. Merritt's messages with souls in all 50 states and 120+ countries around the world, touching millions of lives with the hope and encouragement of Jesus Christ. Thousands have come to Christ as a result.
The name of the ministry is also its mission--touching the lives and hearts of millions each week with the Gospel of Christ. Lives have been dramatically changed, hearts mended, marriages restored, and families put back together, all through the Holy Spirit’s power.
Touching Lives seeks out those who have never heard the name Jesus Christ and makes Him known. The organization ministers to the countless who are hurting and need a touch of God’s love. Touching Lives helps empower Christians in their daily walk with God to be bold in their faith. They encourage those who are weak to be strong in their stand for God and in their convictions through the word of God.
Dr. Merritt’s purpose in the Touching Lives ministry remains to bring the lost to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. His messages resonate with the call for personal evangelism and words that bring comfort to hearts that are hurting and are in need. Dr. Merritt teaches the life-changing Gospel in a way that those who hear its words can readily apply them to the problems and concerns we all face in our daily lives. They’re always personal and timely.
Touching Lives was established to unashamedly proclaim the Gospel of Christ through God’s love, power and plan for everlasting life.
