At Christ Community, one of our core values is Missional Multiplication. When we use that term, part of what we mean is that we want to raise up, train, and send out leaders to multiply our impact. To that end, we regularly invite young people who are passionate about the mission of God to join our team for a season. During their time with us, they receive intentional investment from our pastors and staff, are given significant ministry areas to lead, and are evaluated throughout the entire process. At the end of their time, they are better prepared for the ministry that God is calling them to. This summer we're adding four such people to our team. Allow us to introduce them to you.
