Todd Derbyshire, Senior Pastor

Pastor Todd accepted Christ as his personal Savior at the ripe old age of four, and accepted the Lord's call into ministry when he was eighteen. Todd graduated from Southern Nazarene University in 1993 having already begun full time ministry in 1990.  In the past 25 years he has pastored in Oklahoma and West Texas. Todd is thrilled to currently be the senior pastor of Cross Point Church of the Nazarene in Fort Worth. 


Todd and Anna are the proud parents of seven daughters and three sons, and even prouder grandparents of 8!


Pastor Todd enjoys making pancakes for the kids on his traditional day off and grilling out in the backyard. His hobbies include HO trains, and motorcycle riding. But the greatest joy of his life is time spent with his family and especially his Lord.

Sanitago Rueda, Spanish Ministries Pastor

Santiago accepted the Lord as his personal savior in 2002, at a revival in Fort Worth Texas. A hunger was awakened in his soul that day that led him to Seminary, and to becoming an ordained minister 6 years later. When he first heard about Crosspoint, he was hosting a Spanish church in his house just a few blocks from where Crosspoint was building its new facility. Less than two months later, Santiago's congregation officially joined Crosspoint, where he has since joyfully served as Associate Pastor.


Pastor Santiago is happily married to his wife, Leticia, and father to three grown daughters and 4 grandchildren. In his free time, Santiago likes to read books about theology and other Christian non-fiction.
