Pastor Danny Hodges

Pastor Danny Hodges

Lead Pastor

 

Favorite Color: Ocean Blue

Pastor Danny has been in pastoral ministry for almost 40 years. As a drummer, he is a lover of all music. His idea of a perfect day is either “catching” on his boat or a prayer walk with his beautiful wife Wendy at Busch Gardens. They have been married since 1986 and have four children (Tanner, Hayden, Jairus and Audra), two grandchildren (Jackson & Ruby), and two grand-dogs (Eloise and Kona).

Having served for 21 years, Cameron is a retired Master Sergeant in the US Air Force. Second only to his love for his wife Rhonda is his love of Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

Facilities

 

Favorite Color: Forest Green

Contrary to popular belief Travis is not a professional hair model nor Thor’s stunt double, but a former college basketball player. Rather than the NBA he pursued an MBA and now serves as our Facilities Manager. He is a certified personal trainer who develops the physical fitness program of the ZSOM (ZEAL School of Ministry). He loves a good “dad joke,” strawberry cheesecake, and coffee, but absolutely hates spiders.

Favorite Color: Blue

Anyone who knows Wendy is convinced she wears an invisible superhero cape. A gifted teacher, she leads the CCF women’s ministry in deepening their knowledge and love for both the Lord and His Word. As a “celebrity” in the children’s ministry she brings excitement to CCF KIDZ and our annual VBS with her many characters like Winnie Woakley, and Wanda Wenderbilt.
