All Region Surge Gathering

Title: All Regions Gathering: The Global Church in Phoenix

Description:
Arizona is home to people from nations all over the world and many of these communities are filled with rich Christian traditions. We are blessed to have opportunities to learn from the global church without even having to leave our own city. Cultivating listening ears to the global church is important as we seek to be faithful in our own context.

Our January Surge gathering will be a time for us to learn from international pastors ministering in our community.  Take a moment to watch this video to get a small idea of how these pastors have spent time together over the last year pressing into questions around how they can bless and serve the church in Phx. We are looking forward to hearing from these brothers and sisters.

Kingdom Prayer
Speaker: JJ Spreitzer 

Long suffering as said in The Wiz, is peacemakers even uglier sister. Lack of it will be a huge stumbling block for the peacemaker. Long suffering is not a fruit of human effort. Long suffering is so different from the flesh, which gets easily angered, lose its temper, doesn’t want to give the same mercy that it demands others to give.

This event is for Surge School Students Only.

Quarter 2 Intensive:
November 15th 6-9pm

Description:  John Frame says, “Theology is application of God’s word to all of life.” The second quarter we build off the grand narrative of scripture we just spent 8 weeks studying in order to dive deeply into how the good news of Christ applies to all areas of our life. At the quarter two intensive, we will unpack the beautiful truths of the gospel: that God is great, so we do not have to be in control; that God is glorious so we do not have to fear others; that God is good, so we don’t have to look elsewhere; and that God is gracious, so we do not have to prove ourselves. We will also spend time teaching how God’s love is what transforms and changes us and challenge us to see how the Christ-shaped love of neighbor is key to our discipleship.

November Surge Gathering: Marriage, Family, and Leadership

Leadership is a gift, a joy, a privilege, but it can also be difficult, taxing, and at times, overwhelming. As leaders, we know how important the health of our marriage and family is to the work that we do. At times our marriages can be a place of joy and rest and other times they seem to be a source of exhaustion and challenge.

In the face of the responsibilities of leadership, how can pastors and Christian Leaders nurture health in their marriages and family relationships? How can we model health for our congregations and ministry teams? Where do we turn when things aren’t okay at home?

I have been waking up in the middle of the night with prayers for our group of women and sensing a prodding from the Spirit to bring some of these thoughts to you. I wonder if we are not at a critical point in the development of some of our relationships and spheres of influence and I would like to share some brewing thoughts that have developed and give us some time to pray and discern with one another what we might do in 2019.

East Valley October Surge Breakfast

Unity of the Church in Christ

“Unity” is a well-worn word in today’s culture. Unity means many different things depending on who you are talking to and may even feel like a fluffy, idealistic, or romantic word. It can be a word tossed around to mean that we should endorse anything and anyone for the sake of “getting along.” But regardless of the misuse of the word, unity is one of the most profound themes of the Christian story.

The mystery of the gospel has to do with our union with Christ. That union does not just manifest itself in individual ways, but through the gathering of God’s people. In the New Testament we see this happen among the Jew and Gentile, young and  old, male and female, rich and poor.

Join us for a discussion on what Christian unity looks like like for the 21st century church. What are the means and tools that God has given us to walk in this unity? How do we foster this among ourselves, our congregations, and throughout the Bride of Christ in Arizona?

Speaker & Bio: Jason Turner

Jason Turner is also an advocate for equipping emerging ministry leaders and this is evident in his former tenure as President of Dominion Bible College and in his current commitment as consultant to various ministries and ministry leaders throughout the country. Prior to his appointment as Senior Pastor, Jason Turner served as Executive of Church Services and Associate Pastor to General Board Member Bishop Darrell L. Hines Sr. at Christian Faith Fellowship Church in Milwaukee, WI.

Today, Jason Turner serves as Senior Pastor of Christian Faith Fellowship Church Arizona. He has been in ministry for over 30 years but he will tell you that he is most proud of his 22-year marriage to Rhoda and their four amazing daughters.

September Women in Leadership Breakfast

Our identities are rooted in a God that is love.  So often, though, our identities are stolen by fear.  As leaders, the identities we carry shape the kind of culture we create in our ministries and organizations.  Therefore, it is important for us to recognize those places where fear has influenced our identity, and then to allow the perfect love of God to drive out that fear, making God’s love more complete in us and as a result, in the world around us

Speaker & Bio: Chris Gonzalez
Chris is lead pastor for a church called Missio Dei Communities in Tempe. Missio Dei is a church committed to finding their place in the biblical story and living faithfully in it. One thing that is unique about Missio Dei (other then the name) is that the organizing framework for the church is not a Sunday gathering, but Missional Communities that function in many ways like house churches. Chris moved to Tempe from Memphis, TN in 1997 to attend ASU. He is married to Leslie and they have three biological children and a foster son.
