The Christian Church Starters serves God in the area of New Mexico, far, far west Texas and far southwestern Colorado. The population is about 3,000,000 or about 1 in 100 people in the USA. The Albuquerque metro area has a population of about 830,000 of whom at least 600,000 have no active church life.

A major church plant will be in Las Cruces, NM as soon as possible. At more than 130,000 people in the immediate area, the city is the second largest in New Mexico. It is culturally exciting with many tech-related people moving to the area. They are coming into a community where about half the people are Hispanic.

Besides doing major church plants, the CCS also starts Core Churches and Seed Churches – house churches. Such a seed church has met in the very resistant town of Madrid, NM for several years.

Errol Stepp, the Executive Director, served with the CCS as the church planter of Valley View Christian Church in Edgewood, New Mexico, in 1986. He was the president of the .CCS board before becoming the Executive Director in 2000. The Board of Directors is elected from the supporting churches.
