What we love about Crossroads is that we are student-led. Pastor Eric and his wife, Rebecca, lean heavily on the student leadership team to cast vision and set the course for the College Ministry.
In this season of life having people who have been where you are and are in the next season of life to mentor you can be vital. Crossroads is supported by a strong team of mentors who seek to make themselves available to invest in the lives of students to help them grow in their understanding of God’s purpose for their lives.
Pastor Eric and Rebecca Targe (Loyola ’13) are passionate about discipling and reaching university students for God’s Kingdom. They live on the Northside of Chicago with their daughter, “Cece”. Rebecca is a Chicago-Native and is a Registered Nurse, working in women’s health at a downtown Chicago hospital. Eric is originally from New York and is the Pastor of University Students and Disability Ministries at The Moody Church. He completed his BA in Theology at MBI (’12) and his M.Div at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (’15).
