Our Church

Vision, Mission & History


Our Vision & Mission is to build…

A church that is fresh, real, powerful, and has at its heart the Great Commission to win souls and make disciples of all nations.
A church that impacts the city and influences the nations towards Jesus Christ.
A church that has a culture and atmosphere of faith, hope, and love.
A church that develops leaders and empowers people to become all that God had purposed and destined for their lives.


C3 Church San Diego was started when Ps. Jurgen and Leanne and their small family moved over in 2005 from friends, family, and familiarity to plant a church. From the humble beginnings meeting in hotels, school gymnasiums, performing arts centers, and at one point a hotel parking lot, C3 San Diego has grown from being just a vision in Ps. Jurgen and Leanne’s hearts to now being a multi-campus and multi-generational church seeing lives changed and impacted every week.
Our C3 Church here in San Diego is actually part of a larger movement of churches called the C3 Church Movement started by Dr. Phil and Chris Pringle in Sydney, Australia in the early 80’s. Watch the videos below to see the history of our church as well as the C3 movement.
