Leadership Updates

June 2, 2021

Dear CFC Family,

Thank you for your partnership with our church in the Gospel.

On Monday May 24th, Pastor David Kang and Pastor Tim Rhee notified the Oversight Board that they will be resigning as pastors of CFC. We are thankful for their years of faithful service and we as a church will do our very best to help these faithful servants and their families as they transition into their next phase of ministry and life.  

Here are some words from Pastor David Kang:

Since the beginning of 2021, I have been praying about leaving CFC, and over the course of the year, God has led me to this difficult decision. I came to CFC with an intention of growing in Christ-like character, and I leave with the same hope to grow in character that points to Christ. I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to serve, worship, and grow alongside all of you, amidst my imperfections and failures. To all that have been hurt by the ministry at CFC, I am deeply sorry for all the pain that you have experienced and I pray that you will find much healing. To those currently at CFC, I am grateful for the many memories over the years, for your continued love for the Lord, and your love for His church.

Here are some words from Pastor Tim Rhee:

Serving at CFC for nearly the past three years has been one of the greatest joys and privileges of my life. Thank you for loving and embracing a young, inexperienced, and flawed pastor such as myself and allowing me to walk alongside you these past few years. I also wanted to express my deepest apologies to all those who have been hurt (and continue to hurt) because of CFC. As someone who was called to serve as a shepherd, I am especially sorry and pray you will all find the healing you need in the arms of our most sympathetic Savior, fellow sufferer, and friend. Please know that we will always be praying for CFC, and we look forward to hearing about all that God will do in the days to come.

We are working diligently on plans to address these departures and we are confident that God will bring the right individuals to fill these leadership gaps. We have already initiated conversations with some leaders to step into these important ministry roles.

Additionally, Matthew Lee, one of our Oversight Board members has also tendered his resignation as of last week. We are also very thankful for his role on the board over the past year and as a valued member of our church spanning several decades. He remains committed to our church and will continue to help in whatever way possible. This void is also felt strongly by the board and we are also praying through how to fill this seat to balance out the voice in our oversight board.

Here are some words from Matthew Lee:

It has been my privilege to serve on the Oversight Board these past several months as our church has sought to take steps toward greater accountability and better governance.  With a new job and our family expecting another child in August, after much consideration I have accepted that I can’t faithfully give the time that our church needs during this season.  We love this church.  My family and I will continue to give our support as best we can and are hopeful and in prayer for the future of CFC.
