From the day we started  Community Christian Church we dreamed that it would become a reproducing church.  I think it is significant that this next year we will start at least one and maybe two new CCC sites, be directly and indirectly involved in starting several new churches and none of those are church wide initiatives for the year.  Why?  Because we are a reproducing church!  And a reproducing church reproduces.  It’s not an initiative or a key objective.  Reproducing is who we are and what we do!  In fact, it is kind of cool all the good stuff that God is doing through CCC and NewThing just in the last month.  Check this out…


  • CCC-Montgomery launched our eighth site CCC-Yorkville by sending out about 100 people.  We had 356 people that were a part of the very first celebration service.  Then last weekend we had 323 which is the highest return percentage we have ever had for a second weekend after a launch.  Great job, Carter, Perry and your teams!

  • CCC-Naperville/downtown added a second service!  Despite getting kicked out of the auditorium while they are doing construction and having to meet in the cafeteria, Troy and his team were unstoppable and saw a 40% increase in their attendance!

  • CCC saw it’s overall attendance climb well past the 5000 mark!  It’s kind of cool to think that we started with just five friends from college and now it’s more than 5,000.

  • NewThing apprentice church, 2:42 Community outside of Detriot had a new record attendance of 821.  This is amazing considering that this church is only 19 months old!  Congrats Dave Dummit and team!

  • NewThing apprentice church, Forefront in NYC celebrated it’s first birthday with a new record attendance of 225!  Good stuff Brian!

  • NewThing affiliate church, The Village in Minooka added a second service and had more than 250 people attend for the first time!  Way to go Nate!

  • NewThing affiliate church, The Ridge in Milwaukee was launched with 408 attending their opening day!  Way to go Mark Weight and team!

  • NewThing affiliate church, Community Christian in Davenport Florida started last weekend with 106.  This new church was started in the High Vista community, a 55+ community by Joe and Sue Sutherland.  We are soooo proud of Joe and Sue!

  • NewThing has been doing coaching with churches in Virginia and two of them, Bon Air Baptist and Crossroads Community Church experienced remarkable success and became multi-site churches!


I know that was a lot of numbers.  But remember, those are not just numbers but friends, neighbors and family who are finding their way back to GodIt is so awesome to see what God is doing!!
