What you want to know
SSCC is a fast growing church in the southeast metro Phoenix area. Currently we average 2,600 in attendance and have grown by over 600 people/year for the last two years. Our campus location is ideal. Currently we do five services on our campus in a weekend, but we've broken ground on our new, state of the art worship center (1,500 seats) and a great new student ministries building.

Our vision is clear, to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God. We truly seek to live our vision. We're rescuing girls from rape for profit worldwide. We're feeding the hungry in Africa, and housing the homeless in our area. We're a safe place for hurting people, with a variety or recovery ministries. Nearly half our adults are in small groups, seeking to grow and live the vision.

SSCC is primarily staff led, with a $3 million budget. The board acts as overseers of the vision and resource deployment for the staff. By the way, we're changing our name to Mission Community Church effective 7/1/09.

Gilbert is one of the fastest growing cities in America (currently 275,000 people), and is a fantastic place to raise your family.
