Five years ago, Christ Church Memphis Senior Pastor Dr. Shane Stanford created the Founders Circle Banquet to celebrate the values and work of Christ Church Global (CCGlobal), the church’s media outreach ministry, within our church body as well as in the community. The mission of CCGlobal is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and equip the body of Christ for service through the vehicles of leadership, media and technology. The banquet celebrates this work by gathering and honoring key leaders in our church body and community who embody the values of Christ Church Global.
The 2019 banquet is Thursday, May 2 at 6 p.m. in Seabrook Hall, and you’re invited to join us as we honor those who teach, lead and serve at Christ Church and recognize outreach efforts of Christ Church Global. There is no charge for dinner, but an RSVP is needed by April 28.
