Welcome to the Crossroads District!



The Crossroads district is made up of  75 United Methodist churches from Victoria to Manor, Seguin to Columbus, Edna to Del Valle, and beyond. God is bringing us together as one district of the Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. We exist to support local churches and communities of faith make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation for the world! Pray for God to do a special work in us and in our communities.


Continue to be in prayer with us as we begin this new chapter in our District, welcoming our clergy, both new and returning appointments. May we seek Christ's guidance fervently as we strive towards FRUITFULNESS in our congregations and ministries.
