Meet Christ Community Church:

Christ Community Church in West Chester, Pennsylvania, has a rich history and a bright future, as they add a Director of Worship to their team to continue growing and bringing more people to know Christ through intentional, gospel-centered worship.

Christ Community Church began in 1984, when ten couples from Church of the Savior in Wayne, Pennsylvania, joined Pastor Jim Stevens to start a church. Their first meetings were held in a 7th Day Adventist church building, then grew to a middle school, then bought land in 1990 and built their own building. Since then, they’ve continued to thrive and grow. Current Lead Pastor, Billy Burch, who has led since 2012, has been with the church since nearly the beginning, starting as the Student Pastor in the early 1990s.
