• Johnathan Sublet

    Johnathan Sublet grew up in the South Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, TX in a single parent home. He went to church whenever someone could bring him, and became a believer at age 6. Overcoming the odds, he later attended the University of Tulsa. He earned a degree in Chemical Engineering and was hired by Dow Chemical.

    However, Johnathan soon realized God had something else for him and returned to school. He attended the College of Biblical Studies, and became an associate pastor at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Clute, Texas. Desiring to learn more, Johnathan transferred to Dallas Theological Seminary (Houston) to earn his Masters in Christian Education.

    But God had additional plans.

    Feeling led to be a part of a church focused on building greater racial diversity in the body of Christ, Johnathan accepted a part time youth pastor position with Hope Fellowship in Lake Jackson, Texas.

    During his last semester at DTS, Jonathan began seeking God’s next step. He eventually realized God wanted him in Freeport, TX. He sold his house and moved into a low-income housing apartment complex, where he had already been ministering. He eventually transitioned from his engineer job and made the leap to full-time pastoring at Crossover. He met his future wife, Tricia, in 2015 and the two tied the knot in December of 2015.

    Johnathan believes in reaching people where they are. He does this through community involvement with groups like Brazosport Cares (local food pantry), as Vice President for the local chapter of the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemist and Chemical Engineers, serving as an Anchor Dad for the Brazosport High School Football Team, and volunteering at O.A. Fleming & Velasco Elementary Schools.

    On typical day, he can be found happily married and serving with Tricia in the community, bike riding, working out, and getting to know the people around him, so he can help them discover their full kingdom potential.

  • Chelsea Gonzales

    Chelsea grew up in Austin, Texas. She was raised in church, but did not discover a true, personal relationship with the Lord until she was a freshman in college. She studied Special Education at Texas A&M University, and spent many summers on staff at Camp Blessing Texas—a Christian Camp for kids and adults with special needs.

    Upon graduating from Texas A&M in 2010, Chelsea experienced a hiccup in the plans she had perfectly planned out. It was then that she learned the value of letting go and trusting completely in God as He led her to a teaching job in Lake Jackson, Texas—a city she’d never heard of before.

    She met her husband, Chris, two days after moving to Lake Jackson. They both began serving at Brazos Pointe Fellowship which is where they met Johnathan.

    Chelsea and Chris initially developed a love for the city of Freeport through True To Life Ministry’s Summer Style program, where they played games, led Bible lessons, and spent time weekly with kids and families in a Freeport apartment complex. When Johnathan shared his vision for a new church plant in Freeport, Chelsea and Chris jumped on board and moved into the city a year later. 

    Chelsea joined the Crossover Community Staff as an Office Professional after five years of teaching Special Education in Brazosport ISD. Chris, Chelsea, and their son Abram are enjoying the adventure and look forward to seeing God continue to move in mighty ways in the city of Freeport.

    Chris Gonzales grew up in Richwood, Texas and graduated from Brazoswood High School in 2005. He then attended the University of Texas at Austin and received his bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering.

    He moved back to the area in 2010 to begin working at Dow Chemical and purchased a home in Lake Jackson. He had never consistently attended a church before finding a home at Brazos Pointe Fellowship where he stepped across the line of faith in 2010 and served on the worship team.

    He also met his future wife, Chelsea, and they were wed in July of 2012. The two served faithfully for four years before being called to Freeport for God’s work through Crossover. They moved into their Freeport home December of 2014, and have been serving at Crossover ever since.

    Chris enjoys his full time job as a Chemical Engineer, being a husband and father, and leading worship for Crossover on Sundays.
