Every year at Sun Valley Community Church we share wins from the previous year of ministry and I thought I’d share them with you. I hope this is encouraging to you, inspires you, and prompts you to pray for the ministry of Sun Valley.
I know that ministry isn’t all about the numbers, it’s about life change. That’s why I’m excited about these numbers, because they represent lives that are being changed. These numbers below represent stories of people who Sun Valley has helped meet, know and follow Jesus.
- 902 people said yes to following Jesus
- 763 people were baptized
- 334 households took the “90 Day Challenge” and started tithing for the first time
- 2,588 people grew in their relationship with Jesus by being in a Small Group
- 2,532 people made a difference with their life by serving on a Volunteer Team
- 1,581 kids and students were impacted through camps
- 409 people went on a short-term mission trip
- Over 1.5 Million Dollars went outside the 4-walls of Sun Valley Community Church to help people all over the world meet, know and follow Jesus
- We opened a campus in Queen Creek and it has averaged 1,256 in weekend attendance during their first year. That campus also just broke 3,000 on Christmas Eve
- We grand opened our permanent location in Casa Grande (they were set up and tear down…the campus is pretty stoked about it…so am I) and have grown and averaged 479 in weekend attendance since the move
- Sun Valley was recognized as the 28th fastest growing church in the country and 65th largest church in the country
You’re allowed to celebrate right along with us. The Kingdom of God is taking ground through the ministry of Sun Valley! If I didn’t work at Sun Valley, I would go to Sun Valley. I’m really honored to be a part of what Jesus is doing at Sun Valley, it’s legitimately the most fun I’ve every had in ministry! This year I celebrate 7 years on Staff this year and I’m looking forward to many more to come!
So pray big prayers and take big risks, because we have a big God, and He still does big things! I’d encourage you, if the Lord brings us to your mind, pray for us as we continue to help the thousands who don’t yet know Jesus meet, know, and follow Him.
