About Us

About Us

Christ Community Ministries is committed to two things. First, advancement of WORD Retreats. Second, to encourage and develop Christ-centered community ministries that reflect the values of the WORD Retreats, based on the relationships built through the retreats.

Browse through our web site and learn about WORD Retreats, how you can participate in one and develop one in your community.

Our History

WORD Retreats started in 2005 in Juneau, Alaska. Retreats were held annually for men every year. They eventually began to attract the attention of men and women outside of Juneau and have now spread to the state of Washington and China. The first women's retreat occurred in Alaska and Washington in 2012. Christ Community Ministries was formed as a non-profit corporation in 2011 to advance the retreats across the United States and elsewhere.

Our Mission

Christ Community Ministries has as its core objective the unity of God's people, their coming together to worship and serving the living Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, and through this process to see lives transformed into a saving relationship with God, and to see the fruit of God's grace manifested in the lives of his people.

Our Doctrine

  • We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, the testimonials of the miracles he performed, death on the cross that provides our redemption, His bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, His present ministry of intercession on our behalf, and His return to earth in power and glory
  • We believe in the personality and the deity of the Holy Spirit, that performs the miracle of new birth in the believer and indwells believers, enabling them to godliness
  • We believe the Bible is God's written revelation to humanity and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts. The entire Scripture is the only rule of faith and practice for Christians
  • We believe that people were created in the image of God, but because of sin were alienated from God. Salvation from sin and restoration to God is by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ

Board and Volunteers  


One of the great blessings of being a part of the CCM project is that the end product is a team effort.  We seek to assemble people with a passion for sharing the good news in specific areas, and providing a way to communicate that to the local community.

Our Editorial Policy

Many folks have asked us to post all sorts of things on our website.  Our editorial policy may help you understand the basis on which information is provided at the CCM website.

  • What we post is consistent with the doctrinal foundation of CCM

  • Instead, we focus on how Christ acts in our lives and in our community

Our Development Policy

The website and related Internet services are continously improving at CCM.  What drives development is the commitment of volunteer contributors and editors.  If there is an area of ministry that you wish to contribute time and knowledge, please contact CCM.  We will endeavor to provide the resources you need.
