Introducing Christ Community Church:


Christ Community is a 2500-person, multi-site, Kingdom outpost called to love and serve the people of the Greeley, Colorado, area, affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America.  Our desire is to see lives awakened and transformed spiritually as we embrace the gospel, experience the fruit and power of the Holy Spirit, and engage in God's Kingdom mission. We believe a relationship with God through Christ brings hope, purpose, and renewal to individuals, families, our city, and our world. 


Because impacting young families is vital to the spiritual future of our community, we’re committed to reaching and serving themWhat we do, and how we do it also reflects this focus.  We teach and model the timeless Word of God in a relevant way, stay engaged with culture, and are connected to the fabric of our community.  Our ministries for children and youth are an important way we support and serve the families of Greeley. 


Worship Services:  We currently have seven total services each weekend. Four identical worship services on two campuses; a Traditions worship venue, and services to the Latino and Karenni community. In our weekend worship services we teach the scriptures in a way that is relevant and accessible. People are encouraged to respond to God's word and the work of the Holy Spirit through worship, prayer, and personal reflection utilizing a diversity of music in the vein of the Hillsongs, Bethel, and Elevation worship culture. Most of the worship songs in our services come at the end of the service following the message rather than at the beginning. This “response orientation” comes from our conviction that the climax of our worship is connecting God personally after we have been prompted by teaching and the word. Our worship arts ministry is led by Dan Wakefield, Pastor of Worship Arts.


Student Ministries: Our student ministries, C3 Youth, is a body of students united to live fully, love passionately, and lead courageously as lifelong followers of Jesus. Every Wednesday night we have gatherings designed to help our students experience Jesus in a fun, relevant, life changing way, and build relationships with one another.  C3 Youth is comprised of two groups: High School ( v/o/x) and Middle School (Velocity). These groups meet separately, in small groups and, sometimes in a combined service. Our student ministries are led by Jason Holland, Pastor of Student Ministries, who also is also directly responsible for the High School ministry, and Stetson Beaman, Director of Middle School Ministries.
