Alvin Helms
Co-Senior Pastor

My home town is Houston, Texas and my birthday is June 9th. My wife Melodee and I have four children, Adam, Shane, Zach, and Grace.

My favorite thing to do is to walk on the beach with Melodee, playing any board game with my kids, going to movies, reading, and playing golf a few times a year, just to remind myself why I don’t play golf more often!

My favorite place to visit is my hometown, Houston, Texas. I also love to visit my friends in Long Beach, Washington. They have a house near the ocean, where we have fun going clam digging!

Krispy Kreme Apple Fritter is one of my favorite indulgences!

My favorite books are The Grace Awakening by Chuck Swindol, Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, Lead for God’s Sake by Todd Gongwer, The Good and Beautiful God by James Bryan Smith, and The Gospel-Centered Life by Robert Thune and Will Walker.

I have many wonderful mentors. The person who has influenced me the most is my father, who teaches me about grace by the way he lives his life.

My life-long favorite Bible passages are, Psalm 46, Proverbs 3, Habakkuk 3, and Hebrews 12:1-3.

My life mission statement is, “By God’s grace and power I desire to be a grace-based servant-leader who enjoys building genuine community with others in order to impact my city and the world for the glory of God!” I hope you will join us at CCC and begin a life-long adventure with Jesus!
