It’s a great time to be at Generation Church!
We’ve seen God do incredible things throughout this last year, but it’s just the beginning of what He’s going to do through you! Our church has grown significantly over the last few years- in spiritual maturity and weekly attendance. When a person accepts Jesus, his or her eternal soul is brought from death to life, so we’ll do whatever it takes to keep spreading the Good News and building God’s Kingdom! (Here are 4 reasons why I love church growth.)
An important priority for our Leadership Team is that nobody would “fall through the cracks” as we grow. I want our church to be a place where everyone can be personally known, ministered to, and connected together (which is why you should join or host a Life Group). I’m thrilled that we’ve grown to the point that we need to add more ministry leaders!
Some of you may be familiar with the role of Campus Pastor, but many of you aren’t as it’s a new staff role at Generation Church. They will be a part of our Leadership Team, and will minister at each campus. While I’ll still be doing the preaching & teaching at each location, they’ll help with team building, discipleship, and overseeing the operations of our weekend services. In short, a Campus Pastor serves by caring for people, and carrying out the mission… SO THAT people far from God can experience new life in Jesus! I'm excited to introduce them!
Ahwatukee Campus Pastor
Brandon Miller & his wife Jasmine have served over 13 years in full time ministry together. He loves golfing, family movie night, and is a die-hard Arizona Diamondbacks & Cardinals fan! (Just one reason I like him.) I have so much peace about Brandon overseeing our Ahwatukee campus because we share such a similar heart for ministry and people. Pastor Brandon has a proven track record of building up disciples and leaders in ministry. Everyone who knows Brandon has told me the same thing: “He’s a great guy!” Brandon has served as a youth pastor and lead pastor, and loves to be involved in his local community – even coaching his local High School JV Boys Basketball team for 3 years! Pastor Brandon and Jasmine were married in 2006 and have three children: Braylon, Isaiah, and Chloe – ages 10, 8, and 5 years old. He’ll be starting at Ahwatukee on August 12th.
Mesa Campus Pastor
Sean Michael & his wife Tyler have been involved in church leadership for the past decade. Sean was called from his corporate career into full-time ministry and has a real passion to help people discover their God-given purposes. Tyler is an Occupational Therapist and Professor who previously served as a church Guest Services Director. Pastor Sean and Tyler’s desire is to make the church a place of belonging that leads people into a growing and life-changing relationship with Jesus. Sean and Tyler have been blessed to serve some of the country’s fastest-growing churches and take very seriously the call to make Jesus famous as “SO THAT” pastors. Sean and Tyler were married in 2008 and have one daughter, Rowan Grace. As a family, they love laughing, hiking, road biking, going up north, and discovering local shops and restaurants. This family is incredible! He’ll be starting at Mesa on July 15th.
Amy and I have connected so easily with these couples. They’re fun, warm, and caring! Most of all, they want to help you thrive as a Christ-follower! Our best days are definitely still to come!
