CCM’s mission is to connect and equip Christians to share lives, faith, talents and resources. The foundation on which CCM’s mission is found in Acts 2:42-47:
The Fellowship of the BelieversThey devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled
with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those
who were being saved. The responsibility of the Senior Systems Administrator is to work with management to align the specific job duties of this position with the organization’s strategic plan so as to become a significant contributor in CCM
fulfilling its mission. Based James 5:13-16 below, every staff member will be expected to participate and/or lead prayer with internal and external customers when appropriate.
(Because this will take place during the workday, these opportunities are included in the calculation of hours worked). The Prayer of FaithIs anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy?
Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.
If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
