Meet the Staff


Glenn Kauffman serves as Lead Pastor at CCF and as Bishop to the cluster of seven churches in the Washington-Baltimore district to which CCF belongs.  Glenn and his wife, June, served as missionaries in Hong Kong for 15 years with Eastern Mennonite Missions until 2008 helping to prepare local leaders to assume the full responsibility of church leadership. Glenn has also served in various international missions leadership and training roles.

Glenn carries deeply the CCF mission statement to love God, love people, and lives as disciples and reminds all that living as disciples of Jesus means we are called to minister in the way Jesus did to others.

Glenn and June live in Laurel, Maryland and are parents to two teen age children, Lia and Austin. Glenn and Austin are ardent Ravens and Orioles fans.


Caleb Kaye serves as Assistant Pastor at CCF and leads in worship ministries.  Pastor Caleb and his wife Melissa have 4 children pre-school to early grade school age.  Together they model parenting that reflect the conviction that living with Jesus as a daily reality ideally begins before conscious memory begins.

Pastor Caleb grew up in the area and worked in real estate and emergency rescue before his call and preparation for pastoral ministry became clear.

Pastor Caleb recently led the CCF worship band in producing a CD and wrote the title cut "Spectacular Joy".


Jaye Shelton Lindo serves as Youth Pastor at CCF. She oversees our R.E.A.L. Teens program along with the assistance of an exceptional group of dedicated volunteers. Jaye served for six years as the Director of Operations and prior to that worked for one of the leading Convention Decoration Companies in the country for 21 years.

Jaye and her husband Robert have three beautiful and talented daughters, one son-in-law and an AWESOME grandson. Her family truly is the blessing of her life. She treasures her faith in Christ and relies on her relationship with Him to get her through each day. She is excited about the journey that Christ is allowing her to have and feels privileged to now be serving at CCF as Youth Pastor! Spending time and sharing her life experiences as well as listening and guiding youth in a relationship with Jesus, has been a lifelong dream of hers. She gives thanks and honor to God for allowing it to happen.

When her schedule allows, Jaye enjoys reading Christian fiction and non-fiction books. Jaye’s all-time favorite thing to do is laugh until she cries and a very, very close second is Worship & Praise! Keep the Joy of the Lord in you heart! He is worthy! Psalm 121
