Servant Leadership.
Team Leadership.

"To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder... Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve;  not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock."
1 Peter 5:1-3

CrossWay is served and led by a team of pastors/elders who seek to shepherd "with integrity of heart and skillful hands" (Ps. 78:72). We believe the New Testament prescribes team leadership and mutual accountability for churches, and this is a principle that is core to the leadership culture of CrossWay.

Clint Wagnon

Founding and Lead Pastor

Clint is husband to Traci (1996) and daddy to their five children. In 2001, they were sent  from a church they helped start in downtown Birmingham and the North American Mission Board to plant CrossWay. Just a few months after moving to Orlando, they gave birth to their first child, and then started CrossWay as a small Bible study in their apartment living room.

Clint is currently the lead pastor for teaching, vision, and leadership development.  In addition to his pastoral role at CrossWay, he serves as a consultant and leadership coach for other ministries and businesses. He is also an experienced adjunct professor and counselor, previously serving as program manager for a crisis inpatient treatment center in Alabama.

Clint and Traci are both passionate sports fans (Roll Tide!) and Clint is an avid outdoorsman (Traci, not so much).

Clint is a graduate of Jacksonville State University (behavioral sciences), New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (theology/leadership), and is currently a PhD candidate at Midwestern Seminary in Kansas City.

John Kellis

Team Pastor

John is husband to Megan (2006), and they have one daughter. They have been part of the CrossWay family since 2014. His leadership focus is teaching, administration, and pastoral care.

In addition to several years of ministry service in the local church, John is also an experienced business owner, consultant, and manager at a national telecom company. John is unquestionably the most extroverted of all the pastors at CrossWay. He is a self-identified nerd, and you can often find him hanging out with his family at the Kennedy Space Center or the disc golf course. (John and Megan are also devoted Crimson Tide fans. Roll Tide again!)

John is a graduate of Welch College (biblical studies)  and Bethel University (business administration).
