Christ Community Church is led not by a single pastor or leader, but by a group of elders (Greek “presbyteros” for shepherd) who depend upon and represent Christ the Chief Shepherd (John 10). The Session of Elders is comprised of pastors (Teaching Elders) and laymen (Ruling Elders) who are elected by the congregation to shepherd the flock of God – to know, feed, lead and protect – bringing a localized vision of the church according to Scripture.
(1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, 1 Peter 5, Acts 15)

Ruling Elders: AJ Babel, Hal Bohlman, Dustin Clark, Ken Farmer, Paul Gorman

Christ Community Church is also served by deacons (Greek “diakonos” for servant) who are called to develop and manage a culture of mercy as the church serves the needs of people/families within the congregation, as well as the community around us. Consistent with the New Testament church, the deacons at CCC work to develop the grace of stewardship and mercy among the congregation, thus enabling the elders to prioritize the shepherding ministry of Word and prayer.
(Acts 6, 1 Timothy 3)
Should you have need to reach our deacons regarding a personal/family need, our church facility, or a mercy opportunity in the community, please email email@example.com.
Deacons: Josh Beatty, Jackson Farmer, Aaron Gentles, Rod Haaland, Landon Holbrook, Joe Jansen, Jay Nelson, Michael Reneau, Mike Smith, Colm Thomsen, Gabe Thompson
CCC staff serve under the direction of the Session of Elders, supporting the worship and mission of the church. Importantly, at present all staff serve within an intentional model of bi-vocational community engagement (employed outside of the church), which necessitates flexibility yet enhances our mission to seek “the reformation of the church, community and world.” Most importantly, for each of these folks, family health and church relationships remain the priority.
The Church is “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession” who proclaims “the excellencies of him who called” and saved us. As recipients of God’s mercy who have been given new life, we longingly await the return of King Jesus with joy, hope, and endurance.
We affirm the historic Christian faith as revealed in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, and we hold to the tenets of the Reformed tradition.
Our beliefs are expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith (along with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms), our doctrinal standards. These are “subject to and subordinate to the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the inerrant Word of God.” (PCA Book of Church Order)

Various elders and deacons recently led a series of seminars discussing who we are as a church – here are the PDF notes & audio recordings.
Week 1 centers around our mission, history, and theology. Week 2 discusses the polity and structure of our church (unfortunately, this seminar did not correctly record so it is not available currently). Week 3 describes what it means to be involved here through worship, growth opportunities, and serving (the recording began just a few minutes after the seminar began).
