Worship Pastor
Sun Valley Community Church

Phoenix, Arizona
Church Description *
Sun Valley Community Church (SVCC) began in 1990 with a clear and powerful mission to create a church for ‘those who aren’t here yet.’ Today, approximately 8,000 people attend a Weekend Gathering at one of their five, Greater-Phoenix area campuses and also engage in ministry and community throughout the week. Their ‘come as you are’ value embraces people from all walks of life in authentic environments, and their commitment to solid Bible teaching with real life application, sees transformation as they help people connect to a real God in relevant settings. Their overarching operating values as a church are authenticity, community, and generosity. Sun Valley is known for its community involvement both locally and globally and is regarded as an influential and respected church in the Phoenix area. As Sun Valley moves toward the future, they are convinced their ministry has a “culture worth reproducing.”

The church is not a box people sit in – it is a movement they are a part of.  As Sun Valley moves forward to the next season of ministry, the mission and vision of Sun Valley remain the same: “Helping People Meet, Know and Follow Jesus.”
