Meet the Team

Meet the CMAX Team

Christ’s mission, which He handed on to the Church just before His Ascension, centers on people and their relationships; with God, with each other, and even our understanding of ourselves. We’ve assembled a highly skilled and highly talented team—yet we recognize that ultimately, we are striving to be good instruments in the Hands of the Ultimate Creative Author of all.We, at CMAX see this venture as a calling, and have the mutual agreement that all on our team must put first things first (hint: it’s not ‘our will be done’). We want to bring you the best formation and entertainment possible—yet we want to do it in the right way. We hope you want to be a part of this joyful endeavor. At CMAX, we take our mission very seriously… just not ourselves!
