DR. DANIEL SNAPE
Born and raised in the North West of England, in the blue-collar town of Blackburn, Lancashire, Dan has called America home since 1999, when he came to Boston, MA on a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. For nearly 20 years he made a living as a seasoned, professional musician, but he could not ignore God's call on his life to full-time ministry.
Dan holds a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Boston University School of Theology. He also currently works as a chaplain at one of Boston’s busiest hospitals. Before becoming the Senior Pastor of CCC, Dan served for many years as a worship pastor.
Dan is passionate about engaging contemporary culture using biblical truths and helping others to understand how faith in Jesus and the Gospel give meaning and purpose to life.
Dan is married to Sarah, his beautiful wife and partner in ministry. They are very proud parents of their two young daughters, Dove-Bohème (age 3) and Vesper (age 1.5).

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY COORDINATOR
Ella McGaunn is private vocal instructor working in Billerica, MA and pursuing her Masters in Speech Language Pathology at Emerson College. Truly, Ella's greatest joy is teaching and she often finds herself in a teacher's role everywhere she goes; she started babysitting and serving in the nursery in her parents' church in fourth grade and never stopped.
Ella has served and taught infants through senior citizens, and she cherishes how beautiful God made each and every stage of life. Whether working as an SLP, teaching Sunday School or teaching singing, Ella believes the most important job in the world is to give the voiceless a voice.
When she's not teaching Ella enjoys performing improvisational comedy, singing classical music very loudly and pursuing experimental baking (because she rarely follows a recipe). Ella has a special interest in Developmental Psychology and hopes to use her passion to develop a Sunday School program that serves a wide range of students with a variety of needs.
WOMEN'S MINISTRY COORDINATOR
Peggy has been a member of Community Congregational Church since 1998. She has served on the Diaconate, Christian Education, VBS Director, and is currently a member of the Senior Leadership Team, as well as the Women’s Ministry Coordinator.
A certified health coach working mostly with women, Peggy assists her clients with maximizing and enhancing all aspects of wellness – body, mind, and spirit. Coordinating and facilitating the Women’s Ministry is a natural extension of her coaching and administrative skills as she helps connect women to each other and God’s Word.
