    Job Post 1-1

    Meet Gloucester County Community Church:

    The Gloucester County Community Church, affectionately known as GCCC, began in July of 1982 when the Rev. J. Bruce Sofia and a small group of believers felt called to begin an interdenominational, multicultural, Bible-based, evangelistic fellowship.

    After holding services in two different locations for 14 years, in July of 1993, ground was broken in Washington Township, to begin the construction of their current facility. On Thanksgiving Day 1996 the GCCC family held their first worship service in their debt-free facilities. Today the church and property of 18.1 acres are worth many times over the $4,000,000 that was initially invested.

    The vision of GCCC can be spelled out in three letters, S C S: Sharing Christ, Connecting People, and Serving Others. This mission embodies the two Great Commandments—love God and love your neighbor. Today GCCC has grown into a diverse congregation of 70 nationalities, but one family.

    Over its 40-year history, it has spawned more than 40 churches on domestic soil, launched and supported numerous churches internationally, and currently supports seven home-grown missionaries and one global focus—planting international churches with indigenous pastors.

    Immediate plans include renovating the sanctuary to welcome the emerging generation, expanding GCCC’s Radio Station, launching Chain Breakers (addiction recovery) worldwide, and infiltrating high schools and college campuses with relevant Bible-based studies. GCCC welcomes 1200 people to a worship experience every Sunday with 600 in-person and 600 online.

    sweep the floors and mop up spills and mop the entire floor after supper only.

    Sugar Grove Church is a non-denominational church that is known in our community as biblically sound and with a strong relational emphasis. Originally founded in 1849 as a part of a pioneering evangelistic denomination, the congregation of Sugar Grove faced severe testing of their theology and teaching in 1961 when the denominational leadership tried to steer them towards theological compromise. Sugar Grove persevered and restructured as a non-denominational church, even buying back their building from the denomination that had padlocked the doors.

    Today, Sugar Grove maintains the faith of the generations that preceded us and now thrives as a church of about 1000 committed believers. We are a biblically grounded church with a strong commitment to the preaching and application of the Word of God. We emphasize helping each other grow towards greater faith and knowledge while showing love for one another through both words and deeds.
