Our Story

Sun Valley first opened its doors in 1990 with a heart to reach people in Arizona who nobody was reaching with the good news that God loves us and that Jesus has provided the way for us to be restored in a relationship with Him. That is still who we are today. We are one church that meets in multiple locations (including Casa Grande, Tempe, Gilbert, East Mesa, Queen Creek, and Online) with the mission of helping people meet, know, and follow Jesus.

We believe that we are just getting started and the best is yet to come as we work together to help fulfill the mission that Jesus has given us.
