Touching Lives is the international broadcast ministry of Dr. James Merritt, Senior Pastor of Cross Pointe Church, The Church at Gwinnett Center, in Duluth, Georgia. Placed in his heart by God almost twenty years ago, Dr. Merritt’s passion for souls continues to utilize a vast array of technologies available to reach all 50 states and over 160 countries around the world, touching millions of lives with the hope and encouragement of Jesus Christ. Thousands have come to Christ as a result and the number continues to grow daily.
The name of the ministry is also its mission, touching the lives and hearts of literally millions each week with the Gospel of Christ. Through our ministry, lives have been dramatically changed, hearts mended, marriages restored, and families put back together, all through the Holy Spirit’s power in Dr. Merritt’s down-to-earth messages.
It is, indeed, a ministry for the 21st Century.
Touching Lives seeks out those who have never heard the name Jesus Christ and makes Him known. It ministers to the countless who are hurting and need a touch of God’s love. It empowers Christians in their daily walk with God to be bold in their faith. It encourages those who are weak to be strong in their stand for God and in their convictions through the word of God.
Dr. Merritt’s purpose remains to bring the lost to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. His messages resonate with the call for personal evangelism and words that bring comfort to hearts that are hurting and are in need. Dr. Merritt’s messages deliver the life-changing Gospel in a way that those who hear its words can readily apply them to the problems and concerns we all face in our daily lives. They’re always personal, relevant and timely.
Touching Lives was established to unashamedly proclaim the Gospel of Christ through God’s love, power and plan for everlasting life, and to that end, we continue to be fully committed.
