Who We Are  

Mountain Park Community Church (MPCC) is a thriving church in beautiful Ahwatukee, an affluent area within sunny Phoenix, Arizona. This community has a true small town feel and is known as the “largest cul-de-sac in the world” because of the nearby mountain ranges and tribal lands secluding it from the rest of Phoenix. Starting as a church plant nearly 30 years ago, MPCC has grown to one of the largest churches in the area averaging over 1,600 on Sunday mornings. The local community features excellent schools, abundant sports and outdoor activities, beautiful desert surroundings, and a health conscious culture. Through a major freeway expansion project, God has given MPCC a unique opportunity to relocate two miles down the street to a prominent spot at the "gateway" of our community. We're in the process of building a brand new, state of the art, $11M building. We'll be in the new facility in June of 2017, so this is an ideal time for an Operations Director to come on board and be part of this amazing time at MPCC.
