Corporate Chaplains of America
Fact Sheet

Mission:
The mission of Corporate Chaplains of America (CCA) is to build caring relationships with the hope of gaining permission to share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ in a non-threatening manner.

Values:
At CCA, we believe that Jesus Christ is the answer to our greatest need. While we respect the faith boundaries of employees and adhere to the standards and expectations for a permission-based, secular workplace ministry, when directly asked about their theological underpinnings, our chaplains are trained to respond from a Biblical Christian worldview.

History:
CCA was founded in 1996 by Mark Cress, a business entrepreneur, who recognized how employees came to the workplace with many of the challenges and problems they were dealing with at home and felt a calling from God to leave his business and found a non-profit organization that would make a difference in the lives of people in the workplace.

Today, CCA has a chaplain serving in practically every type of business in America. Our office in Wake Forest, NC serves as a National Support Center and training facility. We are excited to be growing on the foundation of our mission, which is centered on sharing the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ!
