Cross Connections was founded in the late 1990's, by David Jackman and Richard Borgonon, specifically to channel financial support to indigenous and well-researched frontline ministries, across the world, which focus especially upon Bible teaching and training. Many of the original recipients were international ex-students of the Cornhill Training Course, who had returned to their home situations in the majority world, to try to establish similar courses but with few, or no, resources to support them. A group of like-minded Christians was drawn together by a common desire to enable these developing ministries to grow and thrive. Now, fifteen or more years later, Cross Connections continues to support a widening circle of Biblical gospel ministries in over 30 different contexts worldwide. For many this support, given from the UK, is the vital ingredient which allows them to continue in local situations of comparative poverty where funds cannot be raised in sufficient quantity.
