Christ Community Church is a Christian church, unaffiliated with any particular denomination. It was started by Jimmy and Dee Coates in September 2010 with the support of Trinity Church in Virginia Beach, where Jimmy served as Community Pastor for four years. Before that, Jimmy had been on staff with Young Life, and also served several years at another church in Virginia Beach. Christ Community was born out of a felt need and calling from God to shape a church with a simple approach to Christian community and discipleship. The first service was held in the Coates’ home and soon moved to the Hilltop YMCA. In September 2011 we began meeting in the gym at Friends School (1537 Laskin Road). Throughout the years, our focus has remained on Our Call: Helping One Another Daily Follow Jesus.
