Victor and Susan Rowell were both raised in Mena, AR. They were married in 1987 and have raised their three daughters here in Mena.
Victor and Susan have been in ministry all of their adult lives. Victor began traveling with the Christian Motorcyclist Association (CMA) while he was still in his teens. In 1989, Victor became the National Youth Evangelist for CMA. In 1996, the president of CMA asked if Victor could dream big, what would he create that would reach the students of the U.S. for the Lord. With that inspiration, Victor started a band that soon became known as GSMegaphone. They traveled the nation, using the platform of doing concerts for communities to share the Love of Jesus with those student, seeing hundreds of thousands come to a personal relationship with Jesus. After traveling as band pastor and manager for about six years, Victor felt the Lord calling him back to Mena to minister full time.
In 2002 Victor and Susan began serving as youth pastors at a local church. But very soon, Victor felt the call to pastor. So in 2005, they stepped out in faith and began their partnership with The Foursquare Family. They planted the church in Mena in October 2005, with about 100 people in attendance. In the eight years since, the Crossing has become what it is today, a community centered family.
