LEAD PASTOR Rev. Byron Peters
Byron grew up in Owensboro, Kentucky as an average kid on an average street in an average town. Childhood was biking to Grandmother’s for lunch, basketball with friends, riding the motorcycle fast through alleys, water skiing, and an average indifference toward God.
Success, respect, and fun were his objectives for college, but he didn’t count on the “infinite abyss” in his soul beginning to haunt him there. Jesus pressed into that confusion and guilt with clarity and love. “Christ in you, the hope of glory” absolutely overwhelmed him. Ever since, “being set free and setting others free in Christ” has been his God-given purpose.
Byron served for 12 years with Cru at UNC-Chapel Hill, earned an M.Div from Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia), pastored at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Durham, NC, and then planted Christ Community Church in 2005 with his long-time friend Greg Norfleet.
Byron absolutely adores his wife of 30 years (Ruby Bea), and thinks his four kids (Walt, Jay, John Martin and Layson) are downright amazing.
aSSOCIATE PASTOR Rev. Greg Norfleet
Greg grew up here in Chapel Hill. He met his future wife at UNC, and after graduating, he married Cindy and they joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ at the University of Georgia in 1987. They served with Campus Crusade for 10 years. During the course of this time, they had two kids of their own, Evan and Nathan.
For Greg's studies in becoming a pastor, he earned a Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry from Westminster Theological Seminary. Greg has served in pastoral ministry since 1997 in churches in the Chapel Hill-Durham area.
Before discovering an interest in administrative work, some of Amanda's former titles have included: art teacher (middle and alternative high schools), transcriptionist, injection molding press operator, leader for Ukrainian orphanage camp volunteer teams, and she also currently does contract work for World Relief Durham in their resettlement/housing departments and manages their donations warehouse. Campbell and NCCU are her alma maters. She has what she considers a super power (congenital anosmia - look it up!) and enjoys many things such as being in the sun or on a boat, rollerblading, kayaking, dessert, music (plays saxophone, guitar, djembe...), reading scripture, and finding meaningful ways to serve others because of what Jesus has done for her. Amanda lives in Durham with Shark, her funny Boston Terrier.
Community Ministry Director
Wes is a native North Carolinian, having grown up in Charlotte and graduating from North Carolina State University. After serving with two non-profits in Durham, Wes moved to Philadelphia to pursue further theological training through Westminster Theological Seminary and the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation. He holds a Master of Arts in Religion from Westminster. Wes is married to Jacklyn and has two (soon to be three!) children. Wes enjoys golf, coffee or lunch with friends, and spending time with his wife and children.
Resident Geek/Tech Guru
In this day and age, there are about a thousand technological and computer-related questions a minute that crop up between sending emails, maintaining a website, and otherwise running a successful twenty-first century church. From distributing the Connection, managing bulletin announcements, and orchestrating the complicated dials, bells, and whistles of the sound equipment, Gary fields a huge array of tasks for CCC. Without Gary, the whole engine would grind to a halt.
Hailing from western North Carolina, Caleb came to Chapel Hill to attend UNC Chapel Hill, where he majored in graphic design. He usually can be found working at REI. When not there, he loves trail running, playing video games, or drawing. He and his wife Jennifer have been CCC members for several years.
If you'd like CCC to advertise an upcoming church event on the website or social media pages, Caleb will be happy to make sure it happens. Send all communications-related questions his way!
