Chandler Christian Church

CCC Profile Chandler Christian Church has been in existence since 1925 and operated for years under the name: First Christian Church of Chandler. It served this small farming and dairy community for years until the boom of the Phoenix metro area in the 1980's. Chandler is now nearly 260,000 strong and significantly a part of the greater Phoenix metro area. As a Church, it remained small (100-225) with many ups and downs until 1988 when CCC's growth necessitated relocation to its present size of approximately 2,600. CCC represents its community well in age and economics as well as exceeds the community norms in ethnic diversity. It is very multi-generational. It has an excellent working relationship with the City of Chandler and the Chandler Unified School System. CCC has always been a very community minded church. CCC has started and continues to be leaders in the Chandler Community Center (food, clothing, training classes and a preschool for the under privileged); and the Pregnancy Care Center in Chandler and Gilbert (offering free pregnancy counseling, life training and spiritual care for the community). Humbly CCC has existed and continues to hold out a simple New Testament Church practice based in the Restoration appeal of being simply "Christian's only." It has enjoyed a long history with the priorities of strong Bible-based preaching and teaching, an emphasis of student and children's programing and local and global outreach. Pastor Roger Storms has served CCC for the past 28 years as the Lead Pastor. During Pastor Roger's tenure, the church has grown from an average of about 100 to its present size of nearly 2,600. This included the sale of its old facility, a temporary sojourn into a school facility and ultimately its relocation to its present location of a 30-acre campus with 96,000 sq. ft. of facilities. Presently we are in a succession plan that will culminate with Pastor Roger handing off his position to Pastor Brian Jobe. The tentative transition date is set for May 2017. CCC is a large church with a small church "feel." In 2016, we will have 5 English worship and celebration venues and one Hispanic venue. These services are all contemporary in style with a "Hillsong" feel and features up-to-date sound, video and lighting. The preaching is "Scripture-heavy" and varies between verse by verse, verse with verse and topical series with heavy emphasis on application. We would be described as a Bible-based, Purpose-Driven, Seeker-friendly Church. CCC has always valued quality children and student ministries with our present children's ministry theme: D.I.G. and facilities theme: Chandler Mining Company (www.chandlerdig.com). Our commitment to students (www.chandlercc.org/students) is illustrated in the $6 million student ministries and community youth facility called the Bridge (www.bridgeccc.com) - a state-of-the-art, standalone facility with cage, gaming, basketball/volleyball, climbing wall, coffee bar, skateboard park and auditorium. Our mission is that "CCC will be used by God to help everyone in our influence discover, develop, demonstrate and deploy their ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ." Our vision is to equip everyone at CCC to “Love God, Love People and Share Jesus.” Chandler Christian Church 2016
