Functional Area Teams

As a Renewal Movement propelled by mission, CCVT operates through three Functional areas: Leadership, Communities, and Operations. These Functional Teams succinctly describe major areas of focus for CCVT. The three Teams are interactive and overlapping, and integrated where possible, yet with specific, specialised attention. All that CCVT offers its affiliates and their leaders is easily accessible through simple and efficient ‘front of house’ connections and relationships delivered where possible by collaborative, multidisciplinary groups or mission teams. 

CCVT Inc Team

Some of CCVT’s staff operate alongside all three Functional Area teams, supporting all programs and projects as required.
