Gene Oden is the founding pastor of Crossroads and has served as Lead Pastor since February of 2008.  No stranger to ministry, Gene has served continuously in church leadership for more than 23 years, much of it while while working full time in the business world.   For over five years in the 1990's Gene served as Worship Leader for Agape Life Church in Arvada, Colorado. Moving to Enterprise, Alabama in 1997, Gene served as Worship Leader for Extreme Youth Ministries at Glory to Him Fellowship for three and a half years.

Ben Rice
Associate Pastor/Elder




Serving at Crossroads from Day 2, Pastor Ben Rice is a husband, a father, a 10-year US Army veteran, and one of the big reasons people love Crossroads!

Serving also as Youth Pastor, Ben's responsibilities as Associate Pastor put him in the middle of message and series development, and put him in the pulpit several times each year.

Ben received his Bachelor's Degree from Troy University, is completing his M.Div at Liberty University and is ordained to the Pastoral Ministry at Crossroads.

Ben and Kelly Rice have been married for 10 years and have a college-aged daughter and elementary aged son. 

Silas Brooks

A wonderful communicator, Silas Brooks has been at Crossroads since the first meeting and has served in a variety of positions including Youth Pastor.  

A thorough student of Scripture and culture, Silas Brooks not only participates weekly in series development and sermon preparation, but he also brings his unique and energetic style to the pulpit several times a year.
