  • Rev. Tawni Garcia

    Greetings, Church Family!

    I'm Pastor Tawni Garcia, and I am thrilled to offer you a glimpse into my story. I hold a Master of Divinity Degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and bring 11 years of diverse ministry experience to our wonderful church.

    My vocational path has taken me from the role of Community Life Pastor to Executive Pastor, and now, I am honored to serve as the Lead Pastor of this incredible congregation. My heartbeat aligns with the all-encompassing love of God, driven by a deep passion for sharing that love with a lost and hurting world.

    I firmly believe that the local church is the hope of the world, and I express my faith through radical welcome and hospitality. Initially starting my ministry journey in the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area, my family and I embraced a new chapter in Arizona three years ago.

    In my 24 years of marriage, I've been blessed with four amazing boys—Cameron, Grant, Nate, and Jose. Beyond ministry, you'll find me savoring a good cup of coffee, delving into an interesting book, finding my next food adventure, or cherishing moments with my family and friends.

    I relish the opportunity to walk alongside each of you in the unfolding of a fresh chapter in the life of our church. Together, let's nurture a community where love, connection, and the grace of God flourish.
