Our Pastor

HorkavysPastor Ryan Horkavy earned a Bachelor of Arts in Bible from Bob Jones University in 2001, and in May of 2003 he graduated with his Master of Arts in Bible, also from Bob Jones University. He is currently working toward the completion of a Doctor of Ministry degree. Before moving to Arizona, Pastor Horkavy, with his wife Jennifer, directed the college ministry at Morningside Baptist Church in Greenville, SC for three and a half years. Sensing God’s clear call to church planting, they and their two children spent two years raising support to move to Arizona to start a church. While in Arizona, Pastor Horkavy was privileged to serve as the Assistant Pastor of Westpointe Baptist Church in Litchfield Park, for two years.

Though born in Texas and reared in North Carolina, God has burdened me for the West Valley, an area that is exploding with growth but still has little true Gospel witness. My burden for church planting began during my undergraduate years at BJU, and it soon became my passion as God directed me to my life’s mate and through graduate school. Jennifer shares the burden of ministry with me. We strongly believe that God led us to Buckeye, Arizona to plant Crossroad Baptist Church. With nearly 600 square miles of planning zone, there is plenty of room for Buckeye to grow. We are excited about the future God has for Crossroad!
