Meet Us
Welcome to 2017.

God is preparing us to claim major territory for His kingdom.  We are in the last days, the battles we are enduring are fierce, but we will win every one as we continue to trust God.  He will strengthen us when we feel week, encourage us when we want to quit, and go before us to make the crooked path straight.  We cannot lose!

The ladies of Cross Creek Bridge are working behind the scenes standing in agreement with you in prayer.  Below are our testimonies allowing you to become better acquainted with who we are and what God has allowed us to go through to better serve you.

Thank you for meeting us.


Rev. Joanne Dowling

I was adopted at birth, and a couple of months later my parents gave birth to their own child.  Growing up, my sister and I were very different.  It wasn't a good fit; but God had plans for me.  Besides suffering from rejection and abandonment issues being adopted, I felt unwanted and unloved.  But, God put a desire in my heart as a small child to live in California.  That desire never left me, and at the age of 29, after a short-lived marriage, I moved to California.

Though I was driving; God was steering.  He planned this trip before I was born.  Upon my arrival to Los Angeles, I landed a job and a co-worker invited me to church.  The Pastor preached how God loves His children no matter where they come from, and that He never "leaves us nor forsakes us."  I now realized this is why I could feel God's presence standing near me when I was a child.  God had been there the whole time.  I was walking out the life God planned for me before I was even conceived.  I was not an accident; none of us are.  I was meant to be, and so are you, because we are borne out of God's love.

It's 27 years later, and I am more in love with God than ever before.  God has healed me from childhood hurts, set me free from feelings of abandonment and rejection, and given me an unlimited capacity to love others.  That's a pretty awesome God!  He has taught me who I am, and why I was created.  My heart's desire is you, too, will come to know the God who created you, loves you and has awesome plans for you!


Polina Younany
Polina never misses an opportunity to be in the presence of the Lord.  She loves to pray and intercede for the Nations and its people.  She has the discernment to recognize God's still small voice, and refuses to compromise when it comes to the Word of God.  In fact, Polina is very outspoken on matters that concern God.  She is an end times warrior, and I am proud to have her on my team.  She recognizes the season we are in, and she is a Watchman on the Wall watching for signs of the last days as God reveals them to her.  She knows she is not a pre-tribulation woman, as she sees signs of God preparing her to stand strong right in the middle of the tribulation.

Family relationships are important to her; she is the mother of two grown boys who are near and dear to her heart.   Her desire is to help woman reach their full maturity in the Lord.  She is a General in God's army who stands strong in spite of all the attacks the devil throws at her.  She has compassion for hurting woman and she will often tell you that her heart is burdened by the Lord God for the souls of women.


Vanessa Alexander

My name is Vanessa Alexander.  I am just a woman of life, loving wife, and mother.  My interests consist of dancing, singing and scripture reading of the Holy Bible.  My experiences in life have made me who I am today.  I am persistent, victorious and love life.  I appreciate my Lord Jesus Christ who has clearly accepted me through my good days and bad days.  I have seen the Lord's hand on my life and I am more thankful for the journey.  I know my life will never be in vain because of the truth of the Gospel.  Today I serve at Victorious Living Christian Center under the direction of Danny Diaz.  I am a worship singer in my church choir, and a caretaker in the children's nursery.  I am also a home healthcare provider and a teacher/mother to my son, Solomon.

Cross Creek Bridge Ministries is more than just an idea.  It is a clear vision established to help make women beautiful and to assist in healing them to be made completely whole.  Many visions can establish ideas and gifts, but the vision of Cross Creek Bridge is to birth out and discover new avenues of gifts, talents and resources to be used for the good of all womankind.  Naturally, this vision is bigger than anyone could have imagined.  Today, with so much darkness and distress constantly attacking women and their families, Cross Creek Bridge is here every day to expel the light of hope in women's lives and it will continue to bless their lives for years to come with the help of our Lord Jesus Christ.
