Organized in 1994 in New Bern, NC, the Craven-Pamlico Christian Coalition was started by a group of very concerned Christian citizens from the Counties of Craven and Pamlico to address the cultural issues of our day.
The group began primarily to discuss and effect change for some of our television programming. The issues quickly spread to include abortion, pornography, education and the overall decline of our country's moral compass.
CPCC began meeting monthly at the Berne Resaurant with an optional time for a meal prior to our meeting. When the Berne closed, the group met at the New Bern Chamber of Commerce meeting room in downtown New Bern. The CPCC then met at the Golden Corral in New Bern until it closed in 2016.
The group's President and inspirational leader had been Rev. Walter Leake since it began until 2010 when he took a less active role. Walter entered his heavenly reward on Christmas Day 2012. However his wife Carol remains active.
Due to the group's expanding influence beyond Craven and Pamlico counties, and to maintain a proper focus, CPCC changed its name to God and Country Christian Alliance in January 2017. Currently, GCCA meets at Moore's Olde Tyme Barbeque in New Bern. The meetings begin promptly at 7:00pm and adjourn at 8:30. For those wishing to have fellowship during a meal, which we encourage, please arrive between 6:00 and 6:30pm.
To inform and educate the public on issues of moral and political concern.
