Statement of Outcome from The Plan: We believe our people are our "brand" and optimizing their gifts is key to our success. Therefore, we will disciple the overwhelming majority of people at C4 using our unique key practices. Our aim is to have a unified church family that authentically engages visitors, community members, and the world at large. Understanding and embracing the C4 culture will be crucial to passing on the unique DNA of our church.
C4’s Mission is to glorify God by enabling people of all ages to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We practice this through our Vision to become a regional church of 10,000 meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people in Jesus’ name. Our fundamental values communicate what’s important to us at C4. Like many churches, these are values that guide us in our decision-making, but are not particularly unique to C4 Church.
It is our Core Values that help create the unique C4 culture of warm welcome, personal connection, serving together, preaching and worship style, and use of media and creative arts. Each person who is part of C4 builds upon this culture as we work together to enable people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. Click below for more information about C4's Core Values.

Because culture is difficult to measure, we chose to use the most widely used Christian-based engagement survey from Best Christian Workplaces Institute as a means to analyse the health of culture at C4. This organisation uses a “quantifiable measure of a workplace culture based on overall engagement plus 8 factors: Fantastic Teams, Life-Giving Work, Outstanding Talent, Uplifting Growth, Rewarding Compensation, Inspirational Leadership, Sustainable Strategy, and Healthy Communication”.
The “x” in “x+2” represents our original survey results in 2014; “x+2” represents the goal of having a 20% increase in culture, in accordance to the survey.
Throughout 2014 to 2018, C4’s scores reflected a shift from “critical” to “moving towards health” to a final score that is “healthy”. As of 2018, C4’s culture has improved, earning the North American Certification for Best Christian Workplaces as a result.
