We have hired a new lead pastor!  His name is JT Dick.  JT, his wife, Kali, and their three children are currently working on tying up things in Springfield, MO before making their arrival in Denton some time in August.  In the meantime, please enjoy these two videos.  The first is a message from our new lead pastor, and the second is a video we made (prior to voting) that details the process and introduces the Dick family.

In June of 2021 Pastor Ross announced his resignation as Lead Pastor of C3 Denton with full support from the elders. Read his resignation letter HERE or scroll to the video announcement below. We are confident this is being authored by God and that the best days are ahead for the Appleton family and C3 Denton. 

See our Transition At A Glance for an overview of the process, timeline, and our Transition Team. Regular updates on our progress will be posted here.

The importance of prayer over this process is difficult to overstate. Pray over every discussion, decision, opportunity, and challenge that faces the transition team, the elders, and both C3 and the church from which our next lead pastor will come. The following are specific areas to pray for:

  • Discernment
  • Guidance
  • Unity
  • Cohesion
  • Patience 
  • C3 staff
  • Transition Team
  • Ross and the Appleton family
  • The incoming pastor and his family
