Patrick was born in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina. He graduated from Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) in Columbia, South Carolina and Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. Patrick has ministered at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Orangeburg, SC, Arden Presbyterian Church in Arden, NC, and Trinity Presbyterian Church in Plano, TX, before becoming the senior pastor of Christ Community Church in Frisco.
Patrick began his journey of following Christ when he was 19 through the ministry of many wonderful people. His spiritual life grew in the next two years and he began to sense a call into full-time Christian ministry. Small steps grew into large steps which turned into many years of ministry in the Lord’s church.
He and his wife, Kristen, were married a little over a year after graduating from college. She has been a great blessing in his life along with their crew of kids: Olivia, Micaiah, Iain, Mia, Silas and Aliyah. God uses them continually to help him be more like Christ in ways they may never know.
Chuck is a native Floridian, graduated Wheaton College (IL) with degrees in Philosophy and Speech Communication, served four years in the US Army in artillery and transportation, and earned his M.B.A. from Boston University and his M.Div. from Redeemer Theological Seminary. Chuck has served in the US Army, taught college, worked in both corporate and church staff positions, and currently presides over Morgan Legacy Group, a goals achievement company he started 18 years ago.
Chuck submitted to God’s call on his life during vacation bible school at age 10. With a few bumps along the way, Chuck has continued to grow in his knowledge of the Lord, describing his journey as putting one foot in front of the other, always with the Lord’s help, “only because that’s where I could see to put it and not because I was particularly smart.”
Chuck and Carol have been married 28 years and have two sons, Dillon (living in San Diego with his wife, Catherine [Cate]) and Grant (studying biology as a 1st Class Cadet [Senior] at Virginia Military Institute).
Chuck’s ministry involvement at CCCF goes back to the days when we were only three home groups that came together every other week for a devotional in one of Frisco’s parks. Among the founding members, Chuck was ordained and installed with two others as CCCF’s first elders. He has served in the nursery, taught Sunday school, led youth group Bible studies, led in discipleship, led worship, and preached several times. Chuck currently leads one of our small groups we call "Connect Groups."

William L. Enszer (Bill)
I was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in a suburb, Mt. Prospect, Illinois. From early childhood, my parents always took my sister and me to St. Marks Lutheran Church where we attended Sunday School. In my heart, I have always believed in God. But it was after studying the Bible and catechism for two years during 7th and 8th grade that I came to know for certain that I had eternal life through the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
My wife Judy and I have been married 48 years. We have two married daughters, Sarah and Karen, living in Dallas and a married son, Bill, who lives in Houston.
