We have two pastors helping lead Christ Community Church along with our other church leaders. Byron and Greg have been friends for 25 years and both love the town of Chapel Hill. You can read more about how the idea for CCC began on the Our Story page. For further answers to questions about CCC, please contact Byron or Greg.

God blessed them by growing their family to include 4 beautiful children: Walt, Jay, John Martin and Layson.
