Alex Enabnit - Programming Coordinator Before jumping right into the story, this weekend we got the opportunity to hear the Gilbert Campus Pastor, Scott Jones, challenge us all about becoming better neighbors.

Monte Hunt - Worship Leader We all have strengths and weaknesses within our own character. I have always known that my strength lies in service and encouragement: that's me. And as with most people who are like me, my weakness lies in being bold, assertive, and unapologetically truthful.

Jeremy Jernigan - Executive Pastor (Creative Arts/Students) It's been a crazy few weeks for me. If you read Cal's email last week you know that we've made some changes in our Student Ministry. Specifically, I've offered to oversee it and help to create the same culture in Student Ministry that I've poured into Creative Arts the last few years (I'll still be overseeing Creative Arts and preaching in the rotation). I've been overwhelmed by the positive comments I've received fro... Read More...

Time Will Tell

Cal Jernigan - Senior Pastor In my quiet time recently I found myself once again reading the fascinating book of the Bible called Esther. Esther was a Jewish woman who was made Queen by the famous Persian King, Xerxes. It’s an intriguing story filled with twists and turns, plots and subplots. As you read the narrative it appears wickedness is once again going to win and evil is going to triumph. As the suspense builds, so does the sense that the villain is actually going to get ...
