The Roots Network’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus, to see lives, communities, and cultures rooted in the love of Christ and be transformed by the Gospel. Their strategy for this mission is to start indigenous churches through evangelism and outreach, strengthening the local church by equipping them through leadership and discipleship training, and serving others through the local church – medical clinics, water wells, poverty and education programs – as a platform to share the Gospel and connect people to the local church.

Gerald & Frances Mitchum

VET NET - Mongolia

Mongolia V.E.T. Net is a national NGO that has come from the work of Christian Veterinary Mission in Mongolia. By the early 1990s, the opportunities to help with the nation’s developing livestock production system and the need for the “Light of Christ” were obvious. In 1995, Gerald and Frances Mitchum moved to Mongolia to begin the CVM work. The Mitchums began a hospitality ministry to students at the Mongolian Veterinary School. There were no Christians at the school at that time but students began to come to know Christ and a small team of believers resulted, eventually spreading to other universities. This small handful of believers banded together into an organization called Vet Net. Later this would be changed to V.E.T. Net...a network of veterinarians and educators training professionals throughout Mongolia to gain the opportunity to share the hope found within. The goal is to bring genuine change to the rural, urban, and university people of Mongolia through the love and message of Jesus Christ. Thus, while a multi-faceted ministry, the two major ministries of V.E.T. Net are the veterinary ministry and the rural education ministry.

The Centurion Project - Fort Bragg

Rich and Jenny Culp are CCC sent missionaries who have been called to lead the Centurion Project. Rich also serves as part of the EveryEthne Team. EveryEthne exists to mobilize churches to cross cultures without crossing borders through church multiplication in the nations.

Fort Bragg is the largest mission-sending agency in the world. 55,000 soldiers deploy from Bragg into countries all over the globe. The Centurion Project exists to "network and empower churches to disciple military leaders in their mission and the Great Commission." This mission is catalyzed primarily by strategic training experiences called Centurion Summit. During the training, pastors learn from each other and other leaders in topics related to both discipleship and soul care.

Abby Middleton

Bridges International - UNC-Chapel Hill

Bridges International's mission is to "create a safe and welcoming community where international students can experience God and His love, grow in love for one another, and be equipped to further the Kingdom of God wherever they go. Many international students' home countries are within the "10/40 window" which is a term missionaries often use to describe nations between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator. These nations are generally reported to have the least access to Christian recourses in the world.

ReachGlobal Crisis Response - Morehead City, NC

ReachGlobal Crisis Response values people over projects, meaning, the relationships building with homeowners and neighbors, and sharing the Gospel with them, is a priority over the physical project. They have been in Morehead City in response to Hurricane Florence, which hit the area hard in 2018, helping to rebuild homes that were damaged by the hurricane and subsequent hurricanes in years after. Their hope is to serve a physical need but to have an eternal impact; everyone who interacts with the staff and volunteers at ReachGlobal will see and hear about the love of Christ.

The Missionaries and/or Mission Organizations shown on this page receive monthly support from Christ Community Church. The CCC Global Outreach Mission Committee conducted a review and appraisal process for each before advising the Elder Board of its intent to add them to the CCC supported Missionary list. Upon final approval by the Elders, the CCC Treasurer begins making the individual support payments as instructed by the committee. Periodically, the Committee and CCC may sponsor fundraising efforts for special projects that support one, some, or all of our missionaries. These efforts are well publicized through CCC weekly bulletins, this website and blogs. Contributions made for these through the CCC Treasurer (by check, online, or designated cash) are included in your year-end CCC giving statements.

The committee encourages anyone who may feel led by the Holy Spirit to support these missionaries or organizations on a regular basis to do so by directly donating to their supported organizations as provided at each of their websites. In that way, you will receive from each of those organizations a year-end tax deduction statement to use in preparation of your tax returns.
