About Christian Cultural Center (CCC)
Christian Cultural Center began as a small parish in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York in 1978. Our present Senior Pastor, Rev. A. R. Bernard, left a ten-year banking career, to follow the call of God on his life to full time ministry to become the founding Pastor. With his wife Karen Bernard at his side the church began with a small membership, spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and reaching out to its local community in Brooklyn.
Today Christian Cultural Center sits on a 11.5 acre campus with a registered membership of over 37,000.
