To Glorify God by Training Christian Leaders to Reach a Multiethnic Urban World for Christ

Dear Friends of Crossroads Bible College,

Your friendship, prayers, and investment in Crossroads is a bright light for me during a dark time in our country’s history. The political dysfunction, threat of violence, and racial tensions in our country would be alarming if it were not for my trust in a sovereign God!

Administrative Assistant Changes


Speaking of the sovereignty of God, there have been some changes in the Office of the President and Institutional Advancement. First, Elsa Cardona, my administrative assistant, has moved to Houston, TX, with her family. Gerson, her husband, found a good employment opportunity in Houston. Please pray for the Cardona family, both CBC graduates, as they live out the CBC mission in Houston!

Sapphire Perez

While we miss the Cardona family, Sapphire Ware, my daughter-in-law, is serving as my new administrative assistant. Sapphire was born in Miami, FL, where both of her parents had migrated. Because her mother was from Nicaragua and her father was from Cuba, she grew up being able to speak both Spanish and English. Sapphire loves to read, enjoys spending time with people, likes to travel, and is passionate to serve wherever there may be a need.

Institutional Advancement

David Selvey

Mr. David Selvey joined our team July 1 as the full-time Director of Institutional Advancement. We have needed a Director of Institutional Advancement for years to assist with better communication and deeper relationships with our donors. David comes from Faith Global Missions and Faith Church in Lafayette, IN. He brings his experience and skills as an entrepreneur, a pastor, and a mission agency executive to help advance the mission of Crossroads. David has a B.A. from Tennessee Temple University, an M.R.E. from Temple Baptist Seminary, and doctoral training from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

After nearly forty years of cross-cultural experience, David is excited to be part of the multiethnic Crossroads team. He is passionate about disciple-making and is convinced believers have an obligation to multiply disciples of Christ. Selvey says, “One of the best ways to multiply disciples is to train leaders who can train others. I want to help Crossroads become a well-known, well respected, and well-endowed organization that demonstrates excellence in training urban leaders.” David and his wife Kathy live in Lafayette, IN. They have four adult children and two grandchildren.


I am thankful to have Sapphire and David to assist me in the Office of the President and Institutional Advancement. Together we look forward to serving you better.

Because of Christ,

Dr. A. Charles Ware
