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.

  • Praise God for all the volunteers!

    After the storm, so many of our churches and congregations have come together to help the communities most damaged during the recent storm. We are so grateful for all the hours you have donated to move debris, clean up homes and streets, repair roofs and bring in much needed supplies. 

    If your church or small group got together to volunteer, send us a picture! We would love to encourage others and praise God for how He has been moving through you. 

  • Rio Texas Churches Assess Damages

    From the Conference Website: 


  • **District Professionals Meeting**

    Abel Vega, Director of Outreach Vitality for the Rio Texas Conference, Frank Rojas, the new Rio Texas Conference Coordinator of Volunteers-In-Mission, (and if he can make it during this busy time) Gene Hileman, Rio Texas Conference Disaster Response Coordinator, have all been invited to be guests at our upcoming Pastors & Professionals Meeting to be held on September 21, 2017, at FUMC Gonzales Texas beginning at 10:00 a.m.

    They will be providing updates on the Conference’s response plans for recovery from the impact of hurricane Harvey.






    We will begin meeting with churches for Charge Conference on Monday September 11th. All packets have been mailed to the church and all forms made available online on the District website.
    (The Delegates to Annual Conference forms are not online as those are made out to individual churches and sent in bulk file from the Conference office. A hard copy is included in your packet. If you need another copy, I can scan and email one.)

    If you have any questions on forms or how to fill out the reports, please call or email the District Office and we will be happy to help.
