Volunteer Leadership

At Community Christian Church there are some defined volunteer roles that have as much significance as paid ministers and staff.  These key leaders use their abilities and gifting to help CCC carry out her mission. As CCC grows, so will our leadership grow as we develop and equip more faithful, relational, available, and teachable disciples.
