Ministry Update

Pastor Jered gives an update on ministry at Chico and our plans for moving forward.  The next three months we will be looking at what the vision for Chico is and what strengths we will focus on in being an impact in our community.  This coming year we are going to be redeveloping and building our ministry team.  Pray for the ministry of Chico.
