Christ Community Church of San Diego (CCC) was planted in the community of Scripps Ranch in 1987 by Pastor Phil Hester and the Southern Baptist Convention. Our original name was Northstar Community Church, which was changed to Christ Community Church of San Diego in 2003 when the church became an independent community church. Originally, the church met in Pastor Phil's home, was moved to Jerabek Elementary School, and then Miramar Ranch Elementary School. In 1999, Pastor Phil relocated to teach church planting at the seminary level in Georgia.

Pastor Darrell Dunlap was called as our senior pastor in September 2000. The church moved to the Scripps Ranch Library community room on Scripps Lake Blvd in 2001 and then over to Miramar College in Mira Mesa in November 2002. We met at Miramar College, utilizing classrooms, lecture halls, and the large outdoor patio until October 2010 when we moved into our current facility on Kearny Mesa Road in Mira Mesa, one block north of Miramar Road.
