CTC is part of a growing movement of God’s people to be the church rooted in a particular place – the place right outside the church’s walls – the neighborhood. CTC connects with faith leaders and faith communities longing to see the gospel tangible in a particular place. CTC’s mission is inspired by the word “shalom”. Shalom, often translated as “peace”, represents a state of being and community where all are working for the common good. It is a word that represents the world as God intends.
