CrossRoads does not receive government assistance or insurance reimbursement. This allows us to be unrestricted in our mission of providing distinctively Christian counseling to help people put their lives back together. But in today’s tough economic times, more and more of our clients are in need of financial support to offset the cost of counseling services.

The Good Samaritan Support Program
The Good Samaritan Support Program was established to connect financial and prayer support for our clients. The program relies on the contributions from private donors, businesses/corporations, churches, and grant money.  As a Good Samaritan you will also be given the opportunity to provide prayer support for an individual (no names will be given) during the year. This prayer support brings comfort and strength to our clients, knowing they are not alone through their journey. Our counselors have witnessed the blessing of this prayer support.
  We truly hope you will join us in supporting clients of CrossRoads, both financially and prayerfully. We promise that you will be blessed in return.   To support this ministry please click on Donor Card.

Frankenmuth Community Foundation


CrossRoads Counseling Ministries has established an endowment fund with the Frankenmuth Community Foundation. The new fund was begun with a donation from the estate of a Frankenmuth native, Ellie M. (Gohlke) MacKenzie, who believed firmly in the mission of CrossRoads and whose own life embodied the work undertaken by the organization.  Pastor Dale Ahlschwede, who first met her back in 1980 , reflected, “She would be thrilled with this development. She was so tuned in to people who were hurting. She was in love with the Lord and wanted to share his love with others. She was a dedicated, caring Christian and a joy to be around. When this gift became known, my first thought was that there couldn’t be a more ‘Ellie’ thing to do!”
