Prophet – Priest – King

Monte Hunt - Worship Leader In my last blog I shared that the words we choose make a big difference in how our message is received; language matters. There are many churchy terms that many people do not understand: consecrated, propitiation, sacrificial lamb, and Yahweh to name a few. Consequently those who do not understand them might mentally check out, and what we have to say from there is lost the listener. Today I'd like to attempt explaining a churchy, yet completely...

Eyes On The Prize

                        Kevin Larter – Junior High Pastor, Gilbert campus “Keep your eye on the ball!” Better advice has never been given to a kid learning how to play sports. I grew up playing baseball and football and every single coach I ever had screamed those words at me. If you take your eye off the ball, even for a second, you won’t hit the ball or catch the ball—and you’... Read More...

By Corey Bullock - Ahwatukee Campus Pastor Cross country flying is always an adventure, especially with a 2-year-old in tow.  My latest experience was no exception.  Last Wednesday I took off from LEX after a great fall trip home to visit both sides of our family.  Although we had a great time, we were certainly looking forward to being back in Arizona.  Since there are no straight flights from Lexington, I booked a connection through Chicago with a 2-hour layover to give us p...

Unlike a lot of people, I really don’t dread going to the dentist (please don’t read… I LIKE going to the dentist, I just don’t dread it). Anyway, I had to get my teeth cleaned and do the cavity check-up thing. It was there that I was reminded of something very significant. I like to talk. Apparently, I like to talk a lot.

It’s all about Relationship

Wes McGarrah – High School Pastor, Mesa Campus I just got back from a crazy weekend in California, where we (the Student Team) took 280 JH and HS kids to 6 Flags Magic Mountain. We drove all night on charter buses (No, the kids did not sleep); we stood in line for intense Roller Coasters and had a blast hanging out in a giant playground for adrenaline junkies. Why you might ask, because the kids wanted to go and we want to build relationships with the kids. Is it unconventio... Read More...

How to Overcome Weakness

Perry Emerick - Mesa Campus Pastor Being a child of the 80’s, it’s been fun to see a return of Hans and Franz in a recent commercial ad. I distinctly remember them criticizing guys as being “girly men” and that they were there to “pump (clap) you up!” These guys were all about turning weakness into strength, in a funny, SNL kind of way.
