About Mission Community Church
Mission is a fast-growing church in the southeast Phoenix metro area. Currently we average 4,500 in attendance and have grown by over 600 people/year for the last three years. We have three services on our campus each Sunday in our new, state-of-the-art worship center (1,500 seats). This fall, our plan is to add an additional service(s) on Saturday evening.

Our vision comes directly from Micah 6:8: to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God. We truly seek to live our vision. We partner with a ministry in Fiji, rescuing girls from sex trafficking, and a ministry in Malawi, Africa, feeding orphans and widows. We desire to be 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.

Mission is primarily staff-led, with a $4.5 million budget. Our Board of Servant Leaders acts as overseer of the vision and resource deployment for the staff.

Gilbert is one of the fastest growing cities in America (currently 275,000 people).
