2nd Quarter - FROM THE CCM CHAIR
A GREAT LIST OF MILESTONES
July 4, 2018
TO ALL WHO ARE ON THE JOURNEY WITH US:
We owe a huge amount of thanks and appreciation to each of these Expression leaders, and the great teams they are creating. We also celebrate the successful ministries they are enabling and thank our Brother Bill Howard for helping with each launch. His visionary and tireless efforts continue to guide the expansion of our work to reveal the love of our Lord, Jesus. Steve Calloway
The second quarter of 2018 just came to an end (June 30) with a great list of CCM milestones and a long list of brothers and sisters to thank for these growing ministries.
CCMLT ...A nod of appreciation goes to the CCMLT for its decision to access the Zoom video conferencing program. Many hours of inspiring and encouraging conferring, worshipping, and studying have taken place, thanks to the faithful leadership of CCM leadership team members, Rene Smith (Murphy) and Steve Hatfield. We express deep appreciation to Rene and Steve H. for their service to the CCMLT, their sensitive and insightful facilitation of sessions, and Steve H. and his guitar for leading out in joyful praise. Recently Bill Howard has taken on the role of hosting a second line for Zoom so that we can now accommodate two concurrent sessions as well as relieve Rene from requiring her assistance for every CCM Zoom session.
Thank you to Joyce Price for coordinating the multiple prayer ministries in support of the extensive concerns of our fellow CCM participants and friends. With the help of Jerry Broadus, Debbie Burch, and the Thursday Watchman Zoom fellowship, Joyce has facilitated thousands of prayers for the hundreds of expressed needs within and outside of group. If you would like to explore one of these ministries as another of your opportunities to provide prayerful support, please contact Joyce at
Three Spring Events- Three wonderful events occurred this Spring through the leadership of three great teams of leaders. The Spirit of God moved in profound ways through the magnificent ministries of gifted teachers and worship leaders. We extend a deep thank you and congratulations to the directors, guest ministers and worshipers in the conducting of our winter and spring retreats/Encounters.
Steve and Joy Hatfield's team, including Lorenzo Hill, Jerry and Martha Ellison from the Tulsa area, led the Tulsa Retreat this year. Jimmy Munson, Kenny Alcorn, and James Rice from the Chattanooga, Tennessee Community of Christ ministries provided ministry that inspired as well as instructed all of us in our desires to more fervently be the hands and feet of Christ.
Mike and Karen Stacey's team organized a tremendous Alabama Spiritual Encounter and God's Spirit led the way in spectacular manner. Inspired guest ministry was provided by Ed and Marilyn Slauter in which lives were touched, guidance was provided and God's redeeming hand rested on all participants.

Ed Slauter, Eddie & Jane Faircloth, Mike & Barb Stelzer, Rene Smith, Steve Hatfield and Joyce Price have provided amazing ministries working with their teams to launch hundreds of hours of ministries through CCM.
Jesus's passion for us to provide healing and freeing ministries both within our numbers and in our circles of influence has seen massive growth over the past six months and we thank each person involved.
