CrossWay Church (Ocean City, Maryland, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Ocean City Mennonite Church began in 1983 in the summer resort town of Ocean City, Maryland, USA. It started as a church plant of the Atlantic Coast Conference, but also had some early funding from the Allegheny Mennonite Conference which had a Voluntary Service unit in the area. Chuck and Joyce Hostetter provided the early vision for the work.

Sometime in 2008 or 2009, the congregation changed its name to CrossWay Church.

In 2021 the congregation was part of the Atlantic Coast Conference of Mennonite Church USA. The minister was Dan Kemper.


"Chuck Hostetter was ordained...." Gospel Herald 79, no. 46 (18 November 1986): 793.
