C3 is proud to be a part of the ARC where Pastor Matt Fry serves on the leadership team helping to plant churches across the nation.
While serving as a senior associate pastor of a large church, Billy Hornsby developed a small group ministry that became a model used to train thousands of pastors around America. Several years later, Billy visited Greg Surratt and Seacoast Church in Charleston, SC and was moved by how effective and relevant their Sunday services were. He approached Greg about planting churches that combined the philosophy of the Seacoast Sunday service with the relational dynamics of small groups. Greg expressed how it had been his desire to plant 2000 churches across America. The two decided that it made a great fit and that day the vision for the ARC was born.
In 2000, these two joined together with a group of pastors to form ARC. ARC plants hundreds of churches each year and gives millions towards mission outreaches across the globe.
