Children's Pastor ~ Rachael Anderson

My name is Rachael Anderson, and I am the kid's pastor here at CCC! I oversee our Kingdom Kids ministry, and work primarily with our awesome elementary students. My first Sunday in this position was March 15, 2020... the day the world shut down! It has been a crazy journey, and God has truly blessed me with the best kids in the world that I get to serve! In my free time, I like to spend time with my friends, discover new places, drink chai tea in coffee shops, travel to the beach, and read. My most favorite thing to do is spend time with my "son" (my dog), Buddy. I can't wait to meet you!

Middle  School Pastor ~ Kelsey Gronseth

Kelsey Gronseth is our pastor for our Middle School Ministry. She is married to Isaac and has 2 children.  She is originally from Tulsa, OK (yep, a southerner). She moved to NC and met her husband, while he was in the Marine Corp, at their church small group. They married, and the rest is history! She has been a Christian since she was 10 years old... which is huge part of why the middle schoolers are her soft spot, not to mention a perfect fit since she is just a big kid herself!

Hello, I am part of the maintenance team at CCC! My primary duties are cleaning the church, setting up for events/small groups and taking care of the outside grounds.
