At Great Commission Community Church, we value the next generation. We see our children as the church right now and we are excited about seeing them know Jesus and obeying God’s Spirit.
Our desire at GCCC is to see kids growing. As we learn about Jesus and let His Spirit change us we want to kids at GCCC growing in the following areas:
Our vision is to glorify God by making Gospel-centered disciples who love, worship, and enjoy God through a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. We see this taking place by equipping parents to be the primary disciple-makers; fostering community; incorporating students into the life of the church and encouraging them to become servant leaders who build life-changing relationships. To accomplish this we use a three-part strategy: One, we use catalytic teaching to connect them with God’s Word and to learn the Gospel. Second, we focus on consistent discipleship through parent partnership, adult mentorship, and small groups. Finally, we offer continuous missions opportunities to reach out to their friends, neighborhood, and their world. Contact Soojin Kim for more information.
Middle School (6th-8th)
We have a middle school Bible study that meets weekly on Sundays at the Tysons location during service at 10:30am in room F103 (across from the cafeteria).
Students who are in high school remain in the main service on Sundays but we have bi-monthly/quarterly gatherings for all youth (6th-12th grade) students attending both the Tysons and Arlington services.
One’s college years are vital to their spiritual formation into adulthood. GCCC is located nearby several university campuses and it is our desire to disciple our college brothers and sisters during their time in Washington DC. We hope to train and equip them for future kingdom work, however, God might call them. Small Group
We have a Friday night college small group that meets in a DC college campus. Please contact Peter Cho, for more information.
Ride to Church
We can arrange a ride to our church service. If you would like to arrange a ride for our church service, please contact Peter Cho. The Arlington service is metro accessible. We are located few blocks from Pentagon City Metro Station.
Family Life Ministry
Healthy marriages are fundamental to healthy families and building healthy churches. Whether you are engaged, newly married, or celebrating many years of marriage, our Family Life ministry is designed to help couples, parents and their children to connect with God, serve to His purposes and to experience His grace together. We humbly seek to provide a haven for families to be drawn together, catch a vision for families to model Christ to others and intentionally live out God’s design for marriage and family. To accomplish this, we offer a variety of opportunities to build necessary skills and receive ongoing encouragement: premarital counseling, discipleship classes, marriage enrichment workshops and family events/weekends. Please contact Erika Thornton for more information.
As the Fellowship Ministry, our mission is to promote community, fellowship and fun within the church and local community through various activities and events.

Men’s Fellowship Ministry
Our mission is to connect GCCC brothers through both social fellowship and intentional discipleship, which we call “AMP” – Accountability, Mentoring, and Prayer. This ministry is for both newcomers to plug into the church and for long-time attenders to meet new brothers and to reconnect with old ones. Look for announcements about Men’s Fellowship events throughout the year in the church bulletin, Facebook and email.

Women’s Fellowship Ministry
Our mission is to foster a community of women who come together to serve God, build and strengthen one another in Christ, and show genuine faithfulness in living out a Gospel-centered life in our community. We have several events throughout the year, ranging from sharing a meal together or participating in outdoor activities. Please join our facebook page for announcements or contact Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

The Welcome Ministry seeks to warmly welcome everyone into our community of believers. Our ministry acts as a gateway for newcomers to get plugged into small groups and serving opportunities in our Arlington service. More specifically, our ministry is comprised of ushers who provide a friendly smile (and a bulletin!) to all attending our Sunday worship service. Behind the scenes, the ministry reaches out to newcomers, and that also includes a Newcomers’ Welcome Lunch at the end of every month. If you are looking to serve, the Welcome Ministry is a great place to start.
We understand that the Arlington, Maryland, and DC areas are a very transient location, and we recognize the great need for getting involved in the community. If you’re visiting, feel free to talk to us at the Welcome table when you come, or request more information. A majority of the congregation also goes out to lunch after service, so talk to one of us or anyone in the congregation if you would like to join!
Also, if you would like more information about our service or would like to receive updates and notifications via email, please sign up on our contact page!
The worship ministry at GCCC seeks to honor God through corporate praise and personal worship. The worship team leads a time of praise during the Sunday worship service, to glorify God through songs and connect with God through prayer and worship.
We also want to raise up new worship team members and new worship leaders who want to be led by the Spirit. Please contact Pastor Carl Park if you would like to join the team in Arlington or Tysons—all are welcome regardless of musical background. We look only for a heart of service and humility. The team meets every Sunday morning before service to set up equipment and practice songs.
