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 pastoral team and provides direct leadership to our small group ministry. 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, a student at Liberty University who is a car and sports enthusiast. 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.
Roddy grew up in a Christian home and was exposed to the gospel many times. He wrestled with anxiety as a child whenever he considered his standing before God and what would happen after death. Roddy faced the reality that his view of spirituality was to manage external appearances and look spiritual, while not surrendering his heart and desires to Christ. During the funeral of a friend at the age of nineteen, this became a stark reality. Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" was played and Roddy realized the emptiness of the lyrics and hopelessness they presented. God used Pink Floyd to bring him to the reality that he was "a lost soul" on his own, not following Christ. He surrendered his life that day. Roddy attended Clarks Summit University for his undergraduate degree and finished his masters in counseling in 2007. Later he received his licensure in professional counseling. Roddy has worked extensively in student development at the collegiate level for the past eighteen years.
He began his role as the Associate Pastor of Adult Ministries in July 2017. He works closely with small groups, First Impressions, and Next Steps ministries. Roddy married Amy in 1998. God blessed them with two children, Madelyn and Mark. Madelyn is an avid musician and loves the arts. 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 anything outdoors. 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.

Tristan grew up in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. He began a relationship with the Lord at the age of seven, after seeing a TV program of Charles Stanley that sparked a curiosity about salvation through Jesus. He accepted Christ as his Savior that very day. Tristan began to make his faith his own in high school after growing in the Lord while attending Parker Hill Church and the Grace Bible Youth Group. The youth group fostered an environment for Tristan to serve through leading worship and allowed him to learn what it means to worship God. He has loved music ever since he can remember and has always had a passion for playing music with others.
Another passion that Tristan has is for motorcycles and dirt bikes. He had considered briefly trying to race professional motocross while in high school; however, God closed that door via an injury. This only sparked in Tristan an even bigger flame of desire to serve the Lord through music. By guidance from a high school teacher, he looked into and began attending Clarks Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College). His college years left a tremendous impact on him by allowing him to be able to serve with and even lead the RiSE Worship Team affiliated with CSU. The RiSE team went on tour throughout the entirety of the year, going to camps, churches, conferences, and even state prisons! He served with the team for four years and learned to live on the road playing music, developing philosophies about what it means to worship God and how God truly supplies our every need. He graduated in May 2018 with a degree in communications and took with him a lot of life experience from his travels on RiSE. Tristan married his wife, Teala, in 2019 and they enjoy exploring new places and having fun with their new puppy, Rocky.

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 is very active and loves to be outdoors hunting and fishing, while also being a fan of everything sports related. 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.
