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.

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.

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.)
