Moran Vision Care Program.
The mission of Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) is to serve the poor, hungry, disabled, and otherwise needy while respecting their religious, ethnic or cultural differences.
CCSC was created out of faith, and founded in the belief that we are called to help all God’s children heart to heart and hand in hand.
History & Culture
CCSC (Christian Community Service Center) was founded through a grass-roots effort begun in 1977 by Dean Robinson, a diaconal minister on the staff of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. In 1980, six churches (St. Luke’s United Methodist, St. John the Divine Episcopal, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian, Central Presbyterian, Bethany Christian and St. Stephen’s Episcopal) incorporated to create CCSC as a Texas nonprofit corporation.
The original vision of the founding churches was to create an organization to fulfill the Church’s call to meet the immediate needs of people in crisis. By banding together, churches could maximize community resources and prevent duplication of services. CCSC then became the local outreach office of its member churches, and today it is a coalition of 39 unique Christian churches.
Our Member Churches
Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) is a coalition of churches working to reduce the effects of poverty in the local community. Our Christ-centered ministry accomplishes this work through various resources: volunteerism, in-kind donations, and cash donations from private non-governmental sectors including church, individual, foundation, and corporate support. The ministry’s focus is to apply core business principles to the accomplishment of its mission so the agency is returning value to the community in an efficient and effective manner.
