With great joy and excitement our Personnel Team recently announced the calling of Dr. Ed Gravely, Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies and History of Ideas at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary to Christ Community Church to serve as a full-time Pastor of Discipleship!
Dr. Gravely and his wife Angela are excited and also feel that this is God’s direction for their lives. Personally, I cannot be more excited about the possibility of having Dr. Gravely on staff here teaching us the Word of God and training our teachers to convey the life-changing truths of God’s Holy Word. Dr. Gravely is full of passion, one of the most gifted communicators I’ve ever heard and one of the premier intellectuals/apologists in Christianity today. The thought of having DR. ED GRAVELY on our staff is stirring beyond imagination and really brightens the future for CCC! It brings discipleship at CCC to a whole new level previously unattainable. Our Personnel Team feels the same way and feels certain that this is God’s will.

There will be a CALLED CONFERENCE THIS SUNDAY, September 4th at 10:15AM to vote on his calling. What a great day for CCC!!! This is a true gift from our Father in Heaven! If approved, Dr. Gravely, his wife Angela and their two children (Claire and Will), would move to the area in late December and begin their work here in January, 2012! Please be in prayer and joyfully attend the church conference on Sunday, September 4th at 10:15AM to affirm their calling to CCC! Both Ed and Angela will be here eager to meet you on that day! I invite you to introduce yourself to them and welcome them as part of the CCC Family!!! Be encouraged! The future is as bright as the promises of God!
Excited beyond measure,
