I was born the son of a preacher man! Through the years, my father and mother told me I would probably be a preacher. I fought that as long as I could but here I am. After serving in ministry for over 15 years under Pastors Gordon K. Reed and Richard Thomas, I am thrilled to have an opportunity to serve now at CCC-Simpsonville.
I grew up in Brevard, NC and am the youngest of eight children. Yea, that is why I have five children of my own and am in the process of adopting a sixth from Africa! After all, how can the youngest of eight ever stop having children? I married Suzanne Robinson of Hendersonville, TN and boy did I out kick my coverage on that one! I am still trying to convince her that she married well but who am I kidding!? If you want to see a bit of our hearts together for adoption, check out our family blog at… http://suzanne-sanders.blogspot.com/
The Lord Jesus grabbed my heart so early in life which was incredibly gracious. The more I grow in grace, the more I realize my daily need for Jesus. I realize more and more how even the “best” of my works are tainted with the sin dwelling in me. And so I praise my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and am confident He will complete the good work He began in me so long ago and it is Him alone that I desire to point others to.”
I desire to see ChristCommunityChurch faithful in her call to worship the Almighty and to reach the nations. I desire to see CCC impact her community of Simpsonville in a way that is bigger than we can imagine or think. I desire to see CCC become a church that reflects even more the manifold wisdom of our great God through the restoration of lives and the authentic, transparent and Biblical fellowship that surpasses generational, cultural and racial barriers.
If you are seeking a church family, I do hope you will come and give us visit. We are always looking for more friends to glorify and enjoy our Lord Jesus Christ with. We hope to see you soon!
