About My Family

Hello, my name is Emma Cross. I grew up as a missionary kid working with refugees in Europe and later in the Carolinas. From a very early age, I felt the call to serve the Lord in missions and working with displaced people.

I attended North Greenville University and got my degree in education, hoping to use this skill to meet needs. The Lord has definitely pushed and led me toward serving refugees full time.

In 2020, I moved to Clarkston, Ga., where I have been able to build long-lasting relationships and lead in tangible ministry. The Lord has been so faithful to bring me to Clarkston and to allow me to be part of the work being done here.

About My Ministry

Although Clarkston is considered a small town, it is the most densely populated ZIP code in all of Georgia. It is known as the Ellis Island of the South because refugees from every continent have been resettled here. There are more than 120 different people groups in Clarkston, with 90 of those being unreached people groups.

As new refugee families come into our community, my heart is to be the hands and feet of Jesus as I build relationships and meet needs. I also strive to mobilize the local church to step into the lives of our foreign neighbors by leading "Good Neighbor Teams."
