The pioneer of the modern ambulance was from Erie, Col. Percy Lancelot Jones, he made the shift from simply taking men off of the battlefield to hospitals, to sending the physicians to the battlefield in ambulances.
This is how we picture ministry being done at The Cross.
Our city needs people sent out to help, we don't need to just be a place to carry the wounded back to, they won't make it. So we send our members out to serve in the city where the work is needed.
All of our members are expected to be serving in ministry, most of which are not associated with our church. As individuals serve outside of the church, many times we find the church rallying around them to help multiply their efforts and support the ministries that members do.
