Leadership Team

The Leadership Team is here to assist all leaders of Communities of Hope and Compassion with support, advice, and training.


Mutual Ministry

A rich part of the deeper story of Churches of Christ is ‘mutual ministry’ or ‘the priesthood of all believers’. This means that everybody is gifted and important, including those with the gift of leadership who are called to “equip believers, releasing them to participate in ministry and mission on the basis of their giftedness and capacity.” CCVT greatly values all people who provide leadership as volunteers, faithfully contributing to the mission and ministries of their community over and above the ministry and mission performed in their workplace.


All People in Ministry are encouraged to be Lifelong Learners, participating in relevant professional development processes and formation for ministry.


All leaders (People in Ministry, paid and voluntary) are encouraged to be prepared and formed for leadership in Communities and beyond.


Elders, Board Members, or Council Members all perform a vital function in the lives of Communities of Hope and Compassion, equipping, releasing, and making decisions.

Youth Vision

Youth Vision is the youth and young adult arm of CCVT, engaged with equipping and encouraging youth ministries and leaders.

Guidelines For Modern Missionaries & Church Planters

What we might call a broadly ‘Western’ culture has been deeply influenced by the Christian story on multiple levels. What we might call ‘late modernity’ has increasingly distanced itself from what we might call its founding story. Now, that missionary impulse is returning to the West in what has become known as ‘reverse missionary movements’. 

Marriage Celebrant Training

The purpose of this day is to enable you to be well prepared to offer effective pastoral care and marriage preparation, lead meaningful wedding services and provide ethical and legally competent ministry as a CCVT & BUV marriage celebrant. This training day is for new celebrants and experienced celebrants who are in need for a refresher.
