We have been a CCCC member since 2019, and have been continuously blessed with great support and an impressive collection of resources. They have an exceptional staff that is helpful, knowledgeable, and has helped make my challenges a lot easier. I appreciate their timely messages filled with caring encouragement, and the CEO takes time to listen and respond to all my questions and prayer requests. Thank you CCCC for all that you do!!!

Our leadership at Camp Crossroads has been utilizing CCCC resources and the Member Support Team since before I became director in 2008. Their scope of knowledge and expertise continue to help us navigate the challenges of being an effective ministry in a complex society. Thank you CCCC for your care and exceptional service.

Business Administrator at The Harbour, A Community Church

Once again, I'd like to thank the CCCC for the assistance that was provided. I recently emailed a financial question and received a reply within hours. This was a huge help and I was able to furnish our accountant with information which will assist them to understand how charitable organizations are run. You offer many other services, I know, but I've been helped countless times by you to do a better job.

Executive Director at Mully Children's Family Canada

As a first-time executive director, who started in January 2020, I cannot say enough how CCCC has been a lifeline professionally and ministry wise. I have called the CCCC office so many times to ask for help. I have been amazed each time by the thoroughness and wealth of knowledge that the team has. Thank you for the incredible work you do to support ministries such as Mully Children's Family Canada (MCF)!

Executive Director at Haven Ministries

The CCCC’s legal and technical advice is always beneficial for us; it's a service we could never afford on our own. They’re like our CFO in a box. It’s critical for Haven to have the oversight we need to be appropriately governed. The articles and advice from CCCC bring to light areas we can improve, and the charity handbook is invaluable.

President, Emmanuel Bible College

“The ‘future’ comes quicker than we expect, but it need not take us off guard. With future planning support from a Christian perspective, and sound market counsel our employees can make decisions and choices in which they can have confidence. The benefit that comes with working with an organization such as CCCC is that they have done the research and work to ensure that the pension plans are competitive, have integrity and help build a secure financial future.”

I appreciate that CCCC is very accessible as a touchstone to confirm my understanding of the law. They have high credibility and I know I can trust their opinion.

I appreciate the ability to just call and get to the right person, I never feel rushed by them, and the follow up always exceeds what they say they would do.

Co-Lead Pastor at Forward Church

We value that we don’t have to do the work of research when CRA makes certain decisions – we can rely on the guidance from CCCC. As certain needs arise, we know that we have a friend and connection in areas like policy development, charity law, and trends of what’s happening in the Christian charity sector. CCCC is an incredibly valuable resource.
