Cypress Community Church Youth and Young Adults role is a PRIME opportunity for a relational leader who wants to make a difference not just in a church, but in a community.
Cypress Community Church began on Oct. 16th, 1972, founding pastor, Wayne Adams, had a vision for a Bible-centered evangelical community church for believers of many different Christian backgrounds. Pastor Adams and Jim Storey, assistant pastor at the time, searched all over the peninsula for a suitable site and finally located the 33 acre parcel on which the church campus was built in phases. Opening day was observed in 1984.
Immediately after the grand opening a period of rapid growth ensued. By the 1990’s over 800 attended 3 services each Sunday. Special events and services drew large crowds of unchurched audiences. The Christmas Eve service filled the sanctuary to capacity, forcing the standing room only people to watch on TV in the fellowship hall.
Following the founding pastor’s retirement, the years 2000 – 2010 saw a decline in membership with several transitional and short-term pastors. In the summer of 2010, Ben Sobels began serving as the new Senior Pastor. Pastor Ben has been building a strong team and, currently, there are signs of growth everywhere.
