Jon’s faith journey began early when an after-breakfast conversation with his dad led him to accept Christ at the age of four. The son of a pastor, Jon had no interest in following in his dad’s footsteps. However, a high school teacher challenged him in his faith journey, thus altering his planned direction of becoming an architect to enrolling in the pastoral ministry program at Clarks Summit University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Bible. He then continued his studies at Baptist Bible Seminary, earning his Masters of Divinity in 1991.
Jon began CCC in 1992 and has remained for over 25 years. As lead pastor, Jon is our primary weekend speaker. He also oversees the CCC staff and provides direct leadership to our outreach and care ministries. Jon married his wife, Christine, in July 1988. They have two children, a daughter Alicia who is married to their son-in-law Mark and a son Daniel, who lives and works in North Carolina in the car industry. Outside of his role at CCC, Jon enjoys spending time with his family, reading almost anything, jogging, hiking, playing golf, biking, and traveling to new places.
Pastor of Operations
Jeremy grew up in a Christian home and his faith journey started as an adolescent when he accepted Jesus as his personal savior in 1985. His faith became “real” in 1991 when he went on a month long missions trip to Santiago, Chile. While on this trip the group performed a street drama that depicted the life of Christ. God showed up in amazing ways during this trip. Upon returning home from Chile, Jeremy knew that following Jesus was going to be an integral part of life.

Outside of the office Jeremy enjoys watching/playing football, cheering for his beloved Denver Broncos, spending time with family and friends, various crazy adventures and playing golf.
Roddy grew up in a Christian home and was exposed to the gospel many times by his parents and church. He knew a lot about God but wrestled with fear whenever he considered how God viewed him. Would he be accepted or rejected? He worked hard to manage appearances and do the right things but never surrendered his heart and desires to Christ. It wasn't until the age of 19 at a funeral that Jesus finally made sense. The Pink Floyd song, "Wish You Were Here" was a catalyst into making his faith became his own. While this song played in honor of his friend, the emptiness of the lyrics and the hopelessness they presented were overwhelming. God used Pink Floyd to bring him to the reality that he was "a lost soul" on his own, not following Christ. He knew the answers to the emptiness in life but never shared them with courage, and he surrendered his life that day.
Roddy attended Clarks Summit University for his undergraduate degree in Bible and still holds the record for finishing a 2-year masters in counseling degree in 7 years. He later received his licensure in professional counseling from Pennsylvania. Roddy worked extensively in student development at the collegiate level for 19 years.
He began his role as the Associate Pastor of Adult Ministries in July 2017. He works closely with Community Groups, Young Adults, the Care Team, and helping people find their next step at CCC.

She plays the piano, guitar, ukulele, loves to draw, and drink coffee. Mark is 100% boy and has found his love in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Rubik's cubes, and cross country running. Roddy and Amy love to host groups of people in their home and have found great joy in hospitality. They enjoy cooking together and waking up early to share a cup of coffee and talk about what God has done.

Matt grew up in a Christian home with his mother and father and his twin brother, but didn’t begin following the Lord until his high school years while on a mission trip in Costa Rica. It was there that, through the life of a police chief, that the Lord made Himself known and clear to Matt and he made the decision to follow Christ. It was on another mission trip in Miami, years later, that Matt got the call to ministry from the Lord and began that pursuit at Liberty University where he graduated in 2016 with a degree in Youth Ministry. He then decided to go back to Liberty after graduation for a Master of Divinity degree in Biblical Studies, which he completed in 2019. Matt has been involved with numerous churches in a variety of student ministry roles and has a desire to see the next generation follow Christ and to understand that they are apart of the church of today and have a role to play.

Matt loves to read, anything fiction is his genre of choice, and if you ever need to find him, he is probably at a coffee shop or the gym.
Scot gave his life to the Lord at 6 years old. His grandmother was his Sunday school teacher growing up and Scot had the opportunity to be introduced to the Lord by her. Scot’s family had always attended church, and despite also attending a Christian school, he hadn’t been serious about his walk with the Lord during his younger years.

He then joined his church’s worship team, teaching himself to play bass guitar and later acoustic and electric guitars, drums and piano. He was in various Christian rock bands throughout his teens and 20’s and started leading worship at his local church at age 19. He has led worship in churches both big and small, for young adult ministries and church plants, and has a passion to see people “max out” who they are in worship, giving the best that they have, to lift high the name of Jesus.

Scot served as interim worship director during the summer before joining the staff in September 2021.
