Mountain View is a fast growing multicultural church in the far southeast valley of Phoenix, Arizona.  Over the past two years Mountain View has doubled in size to its current average attendance of 1700.  Mountain View is a progressive minded Church that believes reaching the unchurched is not a theory but a mandate.  Because of this commitment we have seen almost 500 people baptized the last few years!


Our purpose statement is Celebrating Jesus and Helping Families Win.  We believe that our Savior is not dead but alive, therefore, everything we do is in the spirit of celebration.  We love to celebrate and have a good time!


We also believe it is our job to be both Biblically accurate and culturally relevant.  We will not compromise the truth of God’s word for relevancy but we do believe that the church should deliver the timeless message in a timely way.  Our content is always useful and always helpful.


We are searching for a 4th/5th Grade Director who is not afraid of working hard, developing leaders, reaching unchurched students in our area, and leading a large group environment.  The 4th/5th Grade Director must have a big “vision” to not only grow our department spiritually but also numerically.


Our vision is to turn our current 500 seat Worship Center into the full time Student Center within the next few years.  The church leadership believes our students are the future leaders of our church.  We are committed to investing in our students and providing them an irresistible, exciting environment.  Students are not a liability, but a tremendous asset!  The Student Ministry has 100% support of the church and its leadership.


We make no apologies: Mountain View is seeking a movement of God and desires to be one of the churches God uses to change the world! Why not and why not you!




1. We are Biblically accurate and culturally relevant. 

We teach the Bible in a way that is both useful and helpful. If it is not useful, it is not helpful. 


2. We teach with passion and humility.

We are passionate about what we believe and that comes across in our teaching.


3. We value simplicity over complexity.

We give up many good things for a few great things.  We are an aircraft carrier on a mission not a cruise ship on a joyride.


4. We lead the way in generosity.

We go above and beyond to give sacrificially to the work of God in our community, nation, and world.


5. We are fishers of men not keepers of the aquarium.

We do not cater to the personal preferences of a few in our desire to reach the many.


6. We value unity over uniformity.

Uniformity says you must look like us, talk like us, and act like us to be one of us.  Unity says we overlook our differences to achieve the vision God has given us.


7. We value family as the most important institution on earth.

Marriage between a male and female was the first institution designed by God.  Therefore, it will be of first importance to us.  We will not grow the church at the expense of your family.


8. We are a place where grace and truth meet.

All people are welcome here and all people will hear the truth here.  Grace shouldn’t dumb down sin and truth shouldn’t isolate people from God.  We give a full dose of both.


9. We are a people of bold faith.

We do what God wants us to do when He wants us to do it.  We risk it all for Jesus.


10. We celebrate life together.

Jesus came to give us an abundant life and we believe Him.  In everything we do, we celebrate.  Good times are not optional.


11. To reach all generations, we use every creative and innovative method available.

God is the author of all creativity and innovation.  We are married to the mission of reaching people, but dating the model in how we achieve it. 


12. Our number one desire is to be a place where God shows up and shows off!

More of Him and less of us!
