ABOUT TUCSON & LIFEPOINT:

Lifepoint church is a new, non-denominational, church in Tucson, AZ. Tucson and its surrounding areas make up a city of over 1 million people, including over 43,000 college students at the University of Arizona. We are a college town, and we have a heart to reach college students. Ultimately, at our heart’s core is to reach those who are unchurched or dechurched by, “Being an authentic community of people striving to become more like Jesus.” Our mission is to “Love God. Love People. Make Disciples.” Tucson continues to be one of the top 10 least churched cities in America, so the harvest is plentiful. If you have a heart for church planting, and a desire to reach the lost, this could be your home.
