Crossbridge Community Chruch


Harris was saved in his Sophmore year at the University of Alabama.  Upon his salvation, he transferred to Samford University and received his degree in Religion, then went to seminary at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.  He later earned a doctorate of Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.   After 24 years of marriage, God took Harris’ first wife home to Him.  In 1994, Harris remarried to Jenny, our current pianist. Harris was serving as a missionary in Venezuela when he was invited to be a co-pastor at Crossbridge.  He is an avid Alabama fan, has three grandchildren and loves to travel. Harris’ dream is for Crossbridge to become a beacon of the light of Jesus to the people of Helena. 

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except through Me.’” – John 14:6

Children’s Ministry

“Suffer the little children to come unto me.” – Jesus


  As a high school student I was successful, happy and fairly popular but something was missing in my life.   One night the song “Only Trust Him,” was being sung for our invitation.  The Lord pulled me up out of my seat and I found myself at the alter asking the Lord to take me.  That night my heart became whole.  Shortly after this I started college and a year later my brother introduced me to Ronnie Acton who became my husband four months later!   I graduated in May and began teaching at Helena Elementary in June and taught there for thirteen years.  When we formed CrossBridge I was offered the job of preschool and children’s minister.  I watched us grow from setting up each weekend at Crosscreek Elementary school to moving on our property with trailers.  Then we experienced the excitement of building our first building.  Now we have a new education building and we are eager to meet new families with children to help them learn God’s word.
