We're Saving a Seat
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 email@example.com, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!

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
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 series of messages on transitions
in the Bible, which will be applicable to us as we face transitions of searching for a new pastor and the changes that will bring.
Jeff Peterson will be serving as our interim pastor and will be speaking Sundays throughout June and July. 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!
Comments about Pastor Jeff from previous churches:
Pastor Jeff is an authentic man of God and consistently delivers an anointed message from God every week—a result of
diligently studying God’s Word, passionate prayer, and reflective meditation. He stresses God’s Word, Missions, Prayer and
God’s will for us in the Body of Christ. I have never met a man so passionate about the Word of God. He teaches from the Bible
and has the greatest passion for prayer that I have seen from a man. He is far more wise than you would expect, and one of the most, if not THE most,
compassionate men I have ever known. Pastor Jeff is truly a Shepherd. He cares for the smallest one and he cares for and has
great respect for the seniors.
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.
