Christ Community Church of San Diego is a Bible teaching, independent Christian church in Mira Mesa, San Diego, one block north of Miramar Road and within 200 feet of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. Our church was originally founded by the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) in 1987. The church became independent in 2003 and is pastor led and elder governed with the elders serving as trustees of the church, along with several trustees-at-large.
Our senior pastor is retiring on September 30, 2021 after twenty-one years of leading and teaching our church family. His departure is bittersweet as we are happy for he and his family and yet will miss him. We are getting excited about who God has chosen to lead us into the future. When Pastor Darrell arrived to lead us in 2000, we were a tiny church of 35 people and have grown to pre-Covid attendance of approximately 200 and current attendance around 150-175. We are spiritually healthy, unified in vision and community, and financially stable and secure with annual giving just under a half million dollars. While other churches were laying people off during the lockdowns, we added staff members. Pastor Darrell is leaving us in an exceptionally healthy place for his successor to build on what God has been doing here for over twenty years.
Christ Community Church is not a huge church in numbers but we are a huge church in terms of impact. We are known throughout our community as the church with the Big Heart, the place to go when going through hard times to find help and comfort in Christ. We partner with local schools providing two tons of food monthly for families in need, hundreds of backpacks with school supplies annually for kids in the Mira Mesa community, close to 1000 Christmas gifts for kids in need in our community, hundreds of meals for the homeless of our community on a monthly basis, care packages for members of the military, tutoring for local schools and so much more. These ministries have started to be replicated in other churches in our community as CCC led the way over the past 17 years.
Christ Community Church is a Bible teaching church. We yearn to learn God's Word, and to be true students of it, but we want to not just know the Word, we want to put the Word into action. We regularly offer classes and seminars on a wide range of topics to provide a strong foundation in the doctrine of our faith. Our small groups, KidZONE, youth group and young adults groups continue to grow, deeper in community, in His Word and in service.
We are seeking a senior pastor with a heart for Jesus, a passion for doing life with Him and a yearning to lead, teach and shepherd a church filled with people who are hungry for Him. After calling our new senior pastor, we will perform a search to hire a new worship pastor who fits the vision of CCC and our new senior leader.
