Meet the Team
Charles and Marilyn Mattix have given spiritual leadership to the Crossroads family since April of 2001.
Born in Tulsa, OK, Charles and Marilyn met in high school and were married shortly following graduation in 1969. They began ministry as Ministers of Music in 1972 in Salina, KS. In 1973 they accepted a Youth Pastor's position in Garden City, KS and that same year began their pastoral ministry. Over a period of 46 years they have served congregations in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Arizona and presently in Southern California.
Charles and Marilyn share a passionate love for Biblical truth and are dedicated to Biblical preaching and teaching. Charles earned his Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry and a Bachelor of Arts in Evangelism from Southwestern Assemblies of God University and a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri.
Charles and Marilyn raised 4 children--all boys. They take pleasure in their 3 daughters-in-law and 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchild. The most recent grandson was adopted from Ethiopia. They cherish spending time together, sunset strolls along the ocean beaches, sight-seeing and the grandkids. For them life is good, 49 years of marriage great, and God is absolutely awesome!
Charles sums up their purpose in life and ministry, "We live to serve Christ and demonstrate His love to people. God wants people to experience His love, forgiveness and immeasurable joy. If we can help people know Christ and live for Him, then we have done well."
