About Us

Surge Network is a movement of local churches united to put Jesus on display through equipping our congregations, sending servant leaders, and blessing our cities. 

There is a great scene in the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally LLoyd-Jones where the Spirit comes upon God’s people at Pentecost just as the resurrected Jesus has promised.

“They threw open the shutter. Sunlight flooded their room, as love had flooded their hearts. And the little room was filled with happy noises. Dancing feet, singing, laughing. They unlocked the door and surged out into the streets- as if they had never been afraid. ”

Surge is a collaborative partnership of many local congregations throughout Arizona. We are not a parachurch or a separate nonprofit, but are a family of local pastors and church leaders committed to serving the church in Arizona alongside one another. Our leadership, financial support, and mission is all carried out through the many local congregations involved.

Partner Churches

Our Partner Churches provide oversight and leadership to The Surge Network. The lead pastors of these churches serve on our Executive Board and ensure the theological and missional integrity of our network as well as give oversight to our financially accountability and sustainability. Each of our partner churches contribute financially to the work God is doing through the Surge Network.

Missio Dei Communities are three local congregations each living as families of missionary servants.

New Valley Church exists to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ.

Redemption Church is one church in ten local congregations across the state of Arizona.

Roosevelt Community Church is a theologically-driven, missionally-minded and urban-focused church in the heart of downtown Phoenix.

Via Church exists to reflect the hope of Christ so others can do the same.

 

Partner Churches

Partner Churches identify themselves as a part of the Surge Network. They serve through participating on a regional leadership teams, contributing financially, and gifting some of their pastors time to serve congregations outside of their own.


Leaders

We collaborate broadly and our leadership structure is a reflection of this mark of our network.
