Staff At Community

Community is not a place with just a few ministers, but many hundreds of ministers.

Our staff goal at Community is to equip the people of Community in such a way that ministry for Jesus is accomplished through every believer.

    Dusty grew up at CCC and held ministries in Kansas, Missouri, and Texas before coming back to CCC in 1997.

Dusty's areas of greatest contribution to CCC lay in teaching, writing, leading, and Sunday morning services.

    Family: Married Kara in 1995. They have 3 sons (Drew, Luke & Noah) & 2 daughters (Maia & Emma)

    Hobbies: "Hobbies!? Who has time for hobbies!" Just kidding ... kind of. Did you see that he has 5 kids? They do love sports, almost any kind.

    Ian has a little hand growing from his right shoulder (as seen in his picture). Doctors have been unable to find a cure, but Ian has learned to live with his condition. (Just kidding!)

  • Jennifer Addington

    Office STAFF
