Justin Garrett

Pastor - Crossing Students
On staff since 2009
Justin grew up in Columbia as a church-going kid, attending Hickman High School and the University of Missouri. The summer before starting at Mizzou he began attending a three-month-old church called “The Crossing,” and has yet to escape. During college, he volunteered with the High School ministry, where he eventually interned for two years following graduation. Justin then transitioned to working with Junior High students while commuting to Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis to earn his Master of Divinity. Justin and his wife, Jennifer, have three sons which keep him busy. Since 2009, Justin’s primary responsibility has been to oversee Crossing Students (6th-12th grade), along with its staff and volunteers. He also has general pastoral duties, like partnering with parents of teenagers as a resource through counseling and classes.
