About: Contra Costa Gospel Church (CCGC) is a bilingual Mandarin/English church in the hub of Contra Costa County in the San Francisco Bay Area. CCGC has served this area for over 40 years. Given the centralized location of Walnut Creek, CCGC primarily draws from the local Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill/Concord area, the Lamorinda area (Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda), and the Tri-Valley Area (Danville, San Ramon, Pleasanton). We have a Sunday attendance of approximately 500 (250 in the Mandarin worship service, 150 in the English worship service, and 100 children). Of this, there are typically 40-50 middle school and high school students.

We are an independent, biblically conservative Evangelical congregation that seeks to serve the whole family – from nursery and children, to youth, to young adults and young families, to empty nesters and seniors. We strive to live and preach the good news of King Jesus through our messages, songs, fellowship interactions with each other, and encounters with the unbelieving world. We are not a political entity, and as such we remain steadfastly apolitical. We do not use the pulpit to espouse political or social agendas, as we are committed to preaching the Good News of Jesus. We are looking for someone with a heart for young people (mainly focusing on middle schoolers and high schoolers, but also college students as opportunities arise) who would like to partner with us to pursue this purpose.

• Provide college student programming (as needed)
