Students

 

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12


We believe that teenagers occupy a great position in the Kingdom: they are simultaneously both the current & future leaders of the Church. In the years to come, the current generation of teenagers will step into the roles of deacons, Sunday school teachers, preachers, worship leaders, and missionaries. And currently they are our missionaries to some of the most unchurched in cultures. CCC wants to equip teenagers to be the committed Christ-followers and leaders they are meant to be. We believe we do that by cultivating three relationships. 

First is the VERTICAL. That's our relationship with God. We want students to grow in their love for Jesus and their obedience to Him. This happens primarily through worship and discipleship.

Second is the INNER. That's our relationship with other believers. We want students to build and strengthen relationships with other believers, both for their joy and for the good of Christ's Kingdom. This happens primarily through fellowship and discipleship.

Last is the OUTER. That's our relationship with those who aren't yet Christ-followers. We want students to be equipped and challenged to love, serve, and take the gospel to the nations. This happens primarily through ministry and evangelism.

Bottom line is that we exist to help students own their faith through worshiping Christ,
loving the community of faith, and serving the nations.

And crucial in all this is the role of the family. CCC believes strongly that the family is the God-ordained place for discipleship to happen. So every chance we get, we try to equip parents to be the primary disciplers of their children.
