Monte Hunt - Worship Leader To all who are reading this today: Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are having an enjoyable and uplifting day with family and friends. And I hope that at some point during this holiday you take the time to capture the memories you are making: take a picture, shoot a video, write about it in your journal.

Kevin Larter - Gilbert campus Junior High Pastor “I just don’t know how you do it.” This is the phrase I hear most often in my life. It’s the phrase that many foster parents hear most often in their lives. You’re out—let’s say at the grocery store—and someone comments on how cute your kids are.

By Corey Bullock - Ahwatukee Campus Pastor This past week I was at a conference put on by Leadership Network. I was immediately won over to their process as I walked into a room that was filled with large rolling white boards and a graphic artist that was assigned to capture the session through picture.

Perry Emerick - Mesa Campus Pastor Recently we had the midterm elections across the nation and in our state. It is the process of voting for our elected officials and it truly is an honor to be able to do that. Not only do we vote for specific offices, but there are a number of propositions and other measures on the ballot for us to vote for or against as well. Ever notice how many aspects and issues of our lives that are framed by those two words…are you for it, or are you ag... Read More...
