About us

Cross Connect Community Outreach was started by Pastor Kyle and Nicole Tolman in 2017 after working in ministry and on the mission field for various years. While driving through the streets of Krugersdorp their hearts broke when they saw waves of children wondering the streets without a purpose while drug dealers and criminals were louring these children into a life of destruction. They knew they needed to do something to change the narrative. Cross Connect Community Outreach was born.
