This Week.

We're Saving a Seat
For You.

We don't care how you're dressed, how many tattoos you have, or what candidate you voted for. We're a church full of broken, imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable, and we're saving a seat for you!

There are people attending, and even leading FHCC, who have major hurts, habits, and hang-up’s. In fact, perfect people are not allowed. We’re a community of people who don’t have it all together, but are discovering what it means to find life in Jesus, to follow him fully, to break free from our past, and to walk in victory together.

If you have any specific questions, email us at, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!

Drive Through

Mondays 7:00 - 9:00 am

Rain or shine, every Monday morning since September 2014, from 7-9 am, church members volunteer to provide a blessing to anyone driving into the parking lot. Most request divine assistance for a variety of issues involving everything from coping with illness to troubled youths. “It surprises me how many people are in tears or dejected,” recalls Pastor Todd Forrest, “It’s a great opportunity to show them the love of Jesus and encourage them.” The vision of our church is sharing our hope in Jesus Christ through acceptance, love and care. That is what we try to give people: a framework for ministry in everything we do."

Pastor Jeff Peterson
Interim Pastor.

During the months of June and July 2019, Pastor Jeff Peterson agreed to be an interim pastor while we search for a new pastor for Fountain Hills Christian Center. Pastor Jeff will be preaching a variety of messages related to our current transition as a church family.

He and his wife, Carla, have pastored churches in Mesa, Arizona and Springfield, Missouri before currently serving as the Arizona Ministry Network's Pastoral Care Director. They are excited to share with us in this important time in the life of our church!

Jeff and Carla Peterson were both born in Chicago, where Jeff’s dad was a pastor. However, they didn’t meet until almost 20 years later. Jeff attended Central Bible College, graduating in 1983. He moved to the Phoenix area and began working with Tommy Barnett at Phoenix First Assembly, where he stayed until 1992. During his tenure, he served as youth pastor, then college pastor. He went on to pastor Red Mountain Christian Center (Via Church, today) in Mesa, Arizona (1992-2010) and Central Assembly in Springfield, Missouri (2010-2016).Jeff is passionate about seeing life-change in people of all ages and backgrounds. He lives a lifestyle of worship, loves the Word of God, revels in the expansion of Kingdom work through missions, and believes authenticity and a missional-focus are keys to effectiveness for today’s church.
