God called Rachel Billingsley to music at the age of 14. The daughter of a piano virtuoso, she was surrounded by music from a very young age. And yet it was intimidating to stand up and sing in public on her own! As a vocalist, she spent years touring with musical groups and serving on staff for two churches. Rachel visited Europe and Australia on musical mission tours and also toured for four years with Maplestreet, a band originating in Fayetteville. She has released two solo records as well as two Maplestreet albums. She and her husband Greg work together to prepare for and lead worship at CCC. Rachel loves using music to glorify God and lead others in worship. The Billingsleys are raising three young daughters who are surrounded by music in their home, just as Rachel was as a child.
Paige Bennett grew up in the Midwest and came south to attend the University of Arkansas. She graduated in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in history, which was largely motivated by a love of National Treasure. She was involved with Cru throughout her college years, serving on student staff and leading Bible studies. She would love to tell you all about the summer she helped to lead a missions team in East Asia. In her free time, you'll find her reading, writing, baking, watching a movie, enjoying the musical talent of others (and wishing she had that gift!), or hanging out with friends. She looks forward to building relationships, connecting people to a gospel-centered community, and serving with the youth at Christ Community.
Erin was raised all over the South and is a graduate of the University of Alabama. She worked with Hunter as an RUF intern at Emory University for three and a half years before moving to Philadelphia, where she recently completed a Certificate Program in Christian Counseling at CCEF. She spent four years as a nanny and loves kids and puppies. Her competitive spirit shows up often, and she enjoys playing volleyball or any other game. Erin loves to travel and explore new cultures, but she’s just as happy to be at home in the land of Southern food, hospitality and college football. One aspect of her ministry at CCC that excites her is the opportunity to explain the Gospel to children in a simple and relatable way.

In Dustin's work with the CCC youth, he's hoping to build deep relationships with students and aid them in connecting the Gospel to their life. He's also excited about participating in God's work of building kingdom community at CCC.
