Don and Deanne Closson – Centers of Church Based Training
Don and Deanne have attended Christ Fellowship since its inception. Don has served as an elder since 2000 and together they lead a Life Group.
Don and Deanne are staff members with the Centers of Church Based Training. CCBT exists to guide churches toward an intentional pathway for Christian growth and maturity through facilitated learning using biblical curricula, training and consulting. Bruce Miller was a founder of CCBT and wrote of some the studies used here at Christ Fellowship’s NeXt Step Academy courses. CCBT partners with 28 denominations in 46 countries to help build up the global church.
After 26 years with Probe Ministries, a Christian apologetics and biblical worldview ministry, the Lord led Don and Deanne to join Centers of Church Based Training in June of 2013. Don is now CCBT’s Director of Administration and a Research Associate while Deanne is the Office Manager. A portion of Don’s time is to serve as CF’s Equipping Pastor with Adult Ministries and Next Step Academy.
