Location & Directions

In the summer of 1978, the Lord planted CCCVA through Pastor John Chiou. The original worship service was held at Shirlington Presbyterian Church (SPC) in Alexandria, VA. Pastor Rev. Dick Smith of SPC was very generous and let us used their facility for free. Our worship service was in the afternoon and there was no Sunday school. Several months later, we moved to Munson Hill Presbyterian Church at 6071 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, where the CCCVA is presently located. Rev. Robert Eickerburg, Rev. Dick Bitzer, and Rev. Bob LaMay of Munson Hill Presbyterian Church helped us tremendously in the beginning with their love and generosity. This pioneer stage was indeed a time of great challenges but the Lord added people to us despite the difficult situation we were in.

In April 1980, CCCVA joined the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and formally became a PCA member church. This new affiliation allowed us to receive both ministry support and financial support. In October of the same year, CCCVA installed her first two elected elders Wu,Tze-Hsiung and Liu, Ching-Pong. A year later we changed our status from that of a mission church to a particular church and had approximately forty people attending the weekly worship service, with thirty of them being church members.
