Jaime Geideman – Worship Leader Recently I went to see the movie “Guardian’s of the Galaxy,” there was a line in the movie that really struck me but let me give you the context of the line. There is a character named Drax who has lost his wife & child and is seeking revenge the entire movie on the guy who killed them. In the midst of his journey he puts everyone else’s lives at risk and a character named Rocket (the raccoon in the picture..stay with me) turned to him i... Read More...

Jon Moton, High School Pastor, Gilbert Campus This is a guest post from Sticky Faith. An organization focusing on intergenerational student ministry strategies. Most of us in the youth ministry world have been familiar with Sticky Faith principles for some time now, and many of us have adjusted our ministry structures in response. We’re more aware of the need for intergenerational connectedness. We know how to better help students make the tricky transition out of high scho... Read More...

Aaron Pennington - Queen Creek Campus Pastor Not to be confused with "All Dogs Go to Heaven." My guess is you clicked on this post after seeing the title, and you were probably thinking one of two things. You either were appalled or concerned that I was representing poor theology, or you were excited because you have always wanted to believe that all people go to heaven. Does everyone go to that "better place" as we like to say when people pass away? One thing we all have in c... Read More...

Cal Jernigan - Senior Pastor My friend, Bill Hybels, was once studying the Bible for a sermon in a restaurant. A young woman looked over and asked, “Why are you reading that?” Bill looked back and said (this is an exact quote): “Because I don’t feel like going to hell when I die.”  (Bill seems to struggle at times saying what he’s thinking.)

What Would You Tell Yourself?

 Cassandra Spicer- Student Ministries Someone recently asked me a question that really made me think. They asked me, "If you could travel back in time and tell your 15 old self something about life what would you tell yourself?" I didn't answer this friend because I honestly wasn't sure what I would tell myself. You see, at 15 I was introduced to Christ for the very first time. If I could travel back and talk to my 14 year old self I would encourage her to meet Jesus way soone... Read More...

By Corey Bullock - Ahwatukee Campus Pastor I am a people person by nature.  I love being around people and thrive on interactions with others.  When I am preparing for a message or planning an event I always think better with other minds and mouths in the conversation.  Sure I need my down time like anyone else, but if I had a choice between being by myself or around others then hands down I would choose others. Recently I was compelled (I don't know a better way of describ... Read More...
