You probably have noticed that I am trying to get your attention about an event. This event, the Hope Summit could greatly affect the trajectory of our church – I am hoping that my words are clear and that if you call
The Hope Summit is this Sunday, October 9 at 6pm in the Auditorium. This may be a defining moment that we will look back on for years to come. God has put some huge and compelling vision goals on our hearts for 2017-2018 for Via – and I want you to hear about them. We will be looking at: some specific improvements on our campus that we feel will greatly enhance our ability to minister to families, an opportunity to plant a congregation in the Phoenix area, giving more to global missions than we ever have before, and much more!
As your pastor, I need your participation in this initiative. You are vital to this vision. We will start the night by serving pizza in the courtyard at 5:15pm. Parents, Sunday evenings are a great time to bring your kids and youth. We have something for birth thru High School every Sunday night! Thanks in advance for making this a high priority.

See the Mailers
Last weekend, I met folks who discovered us through one of the mailers that went out over the last few weeks. This week, the same 21,000 homes received a third mailing – trying to engage them with faith at either Via or another gospel preaching church. I can’t help but think of how God works through our simple, faith filled, and Spirit led actions. He uses us to accomplish His divine work – this is so humbling! May God soften the hardened hearts of people in our community as we strive in many ways to increase witness for Jesus! Take a look at each of the mailers below:
Global Trip: Albania
Lastly, let me challenge you to pray for our Albania Team as they join arms with our friends at Gospel of Christ Church in Tirana October 10-19. We hope to bless our brothers and sisters there and advance their work among the poor and marginalized. How exciting!
It’s all about Jesus,
