In 1977, a group of 15 people reopened the old Springville Christian Church in Springville,
Indiana, which had sat empty for several months. It was the desire of the congregation to
attract a variety of denominations to their new church and the name was changed to
Springville Community Church.

and a desire to build a church that would be a "light on a hill" to a community in need of a
By 1985, after numerous building additions and much remodeling, there was no more room
on the property for further building enlargements. However, the congregation kept growing
and soon the sanctuary would have been too small to accommodate all.
A group of church leaders began pursuing new sites for the construction of a new church
building. After a long search, an available piece of property at the corner of Highway 37 and
Trogden Lane, just outside of Needmore, was purchased, and paid in full. The church
property in Springville was put up for sale as a new church was being erected on the newly
purchased 30 acres of land.
Since the new church building was no longer located in Springville, the congregation chose
a new name and the church became Crossroads Community Church.
In October 1995, the new building including a sanctuary seating 800+ people, a multi
purpose gymnasium, and classrooms, was dedicated to the Lord.
