Church

The purpose of the Church Domain is to identify Christians who will promote the Kingdom of God within the city by partnering with their home congregation, encouraging their home congregation to partner with other congregations in tangible ways, and aligning with Jesus’ John 17 prayer for the Church in Tucson.

What is something unique or descriptive about your church?
My wife and I have recently become the new pastors at LIC! One of the things that we have noticed about our church is that, although we’re on the south side, the church has remained consistently multicultural over the years. 

What is happening within the church that you are excited about?
We have a lot of fresh ideas as we go forward. One of our primary focuses is on discipleship so we are currently praying about ways to sharpen the edge of discipling those entrusted to us. We’ve coined the term “Renew the Mind, Renew the Streets.”

What are one or two prayer needs within the church? 
We are in desperate need of laborers. We have toddlers and teenagers that are showing up and we need help in developing systems that engage with these demographics. We have the facility but the manpower is weak. Secondly we need a new sound system that will last for years to come. With that we need a true sound engineer, someone that knows his or her way around PA equipment.

Anything else you’d like to share?
Additional prayer would be that God would continue to help us build up the infrastructure of the church so that as we grow, people are not coming into mess, but a healthy body.

What is something unique or descriptive about your church?
We are a Spirit Led Church that serves the Lord via various outreach activities to a community of need. A church that seeks to be the Hands and Feet of Christ without judgement our expectation.

What is happening within the church that you are excited about?
We are growing in number and in becoming more like Christ each day as we surrender all to Him.

What are one or two prayer needs within the church? 
We have started the process to identify the next Pastor God will call to lead us – our current Pastors have expressed their desire to retire within the next 3 years. Please be in prayer for us to seek God in all of this and for us to be obedient to His leading – thank you.

Anything else you’d like to share?
Thank you to all who continue to serve our Lord and Savior in and though all that is going on in Tucson, in Arizona, in this country and in this world. My God richly bless you with His presence and provision.

What is something unique or descriptive about your church?
People are always saying how comfortable they feel when they try FCC; they say things like ‘this just feels like home’. We are a friendly church that truly thanks God for the opportunity to be in the ministry and to minister to people and families of all kinds. We are Bible based and gospel centered and that is the message we believe the world and Tucson needs to hear.

What is happening within the church that you are excited about?
God has blessed with a lot of growth over the last 2 years to the point of that growth causing us to make decisions we didn’t think we would have to for a while; great problem to have! The church is ALIVE with Spirit of God in all aspects, music, preaching, relationships, youth, and children. God is moving and working in the lives of His children and it is awesome!

What are one or two prayer needs within the church? 
Pray for soft hearts towards the gospel message, pray that we have wisdom on the part we play in ministering to Tucson as just a part of the body of Christ, so that we would be as He wants us to be, act like He wants us to act, that God would keep moving and directing as each day. Pray that our members would continue to grow in the Lord and that God uses each member, every day, all over this community for His glory!

Anything else you’d like to share?
Thank you for your prayers, thank you for being a blessing, thank you for what you are doing for God, and we will be praying that He continues to grow, bless, and use you greatly. To God be ALL the glory!

What is something unique or descriptive about your church?
As of April 26th of this year, ABC is now 80 years old. But actually, we go much farther back than that. A work was started here in 1918 by the American Sunday School Union, “way out in the country.” The church existed for several years in the living rooms of members before being constituted on April 26, 1944. And now we are mid-city, even though we’ve never moved.

What is happening within the church that you are excited about?
We are in the process of merging another congregation into ours. They were cruelly locked out of their own church by their Denomination headquarters and have elected to become a part of ABC. So far, the merge has been seamless. Pray that will continue.

What are one or two prayer needs within the church? 
Please pray that this merger will continue to go as well as it is going now. For sure, many of these new people are saddened, angered, and confused by having been so meanly pushed out of the church that they loved but that now is no more.

Men can be hurtful and uncaring, but GOD IS GOOD. ALL THE TIME!
