About Us

With locations in Rockaway, Montclair, and Clifton, NJ, Christ Church is a multisite, multicultural, non-denominational church founded in 1986 by Drs. David & Marlinda Ireland and six other people. Now over 70 different nationalities and thousands of families call Christ Church home.

All of our sites enjoy a live, contemporary and diverse worship experience, led by our very own Christ Church Collective, and a transformational message by the Christ Church Teaching Team, led by founder and lead pastor, Dr. David Ireland.

We also have our Quest Student Ministries that serve the next generation (kids, teens, college and young adults). Since 1986, we've sought to Unite People to God and People to People; we look forward to welcoming you and your family to Christ Church Poconos in the near future. In the meantime, our desire is to establish Mini Campuses in the Poconos and across the globe. A Mini Campus is a place where 10-50 people can gather from different parts of the country—and even the world—to watch CC Online together and to grow in community.
