From Arlington to Tysons to the Ends of the Earth

Our story began as a vision for a local church in the northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland area in the summer of 2001 when Pastor Matthew Lee (founding pastor/lead planter), Simon Hahn, and Peter Cho, three local DC residents, felt the need for a church that could reach young adults. Although this desire had been stirring prior to 2001, it wasn’t until July of that year that they began to actively seek God’s direction and leading.

In the spring of 2002, a small group was formed and on June 9, 2002, Great Commission Community Church (GCCC) held its first official Sunday service in Pentagon City, Virginia.

In 2010, Pastor Steve Kim was installed as the lead pastor of Great Commission Community Church. On March 18, 2012, GCCC celebrated its transition from an affiliate of the Christian & Missionary Alliance church plant to an official church. As an official church, the first elders were installed and thus a ruling Governance Board was established. It was also a noteworthy year as it was the 10th anniversary since the founding of GCCC in Arlington.

Over time, as the church has grown, a decision was made after years of looking at various locations and options that a second service in the Tysons Corner area would best fit our needs.

Why Tysons Corner? Many who have made GCCC their church home are coming from all over the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia). The location of Tysons on the 495-corridor (aka, “the Beltway”) is strategic, being a mid-point that’s easily accessible from locations from Fairfax to Vienna to Rockville to people in Arlington. In short, having two services–one in Tysons and one in Arlington–allows us to reach a wider range of people, planting seeds and nurturing disciples.

On June 14, 2015, Tysons Corner service opened its door at George C. Marshall High School.

Over the past years, GCCC has steadily grown in size and activity, attracting students, young adults, and families from the metropolitan DC, northern Virginia and Maryland areas. While we started as a mostly Asian American community, we have grown to be a little more diverse and desire to represent the look of our communities. The church has also been active in serving both the local and global community through our service and financial support of Christian & Missionary Alliance workers overseas as well as local organizations.

We have two services but still, very much consider ourselves one church! So please join us and be a part of our story as we desire to live out our name, Great Commission Community Church, and influence and serve those in our immediate area and creating disciples that will impact all corners of the world!
