History: The Tucson Church of Christ was planted on September 30th, 2012 by a team of 22 people who moved here from Phoenix, Los Angeles and as far away as Ashland, Oregon. We were sponsored by the Los Angeles Church of Christ and the Phoenix Church of Christ to build a thriving church that could reach all of Tucson. In a little over two years the church has grown to about 100 members and 150 average Sunday attendance.
Location: We are located across the street from the University of Arizona for a very specific reason. Tucson is built around the University or Arizona. We want to be able to reach the nearly 40,000 students who study across the street. Our family of churches has a long history of campus ministry and many of our older members were originally converted on campus during their college years. We look forward to the day when we have over 100 members studying at the University.
Affiliation: We are a part of the International Churches of Christ. We have sister churches around the world and share a dream to take the Gospel to every corner of the globe.
Teaching: You will notice right away that we teach heavily from the Bible. We have no creed or doctrine except the Bible. We invite every person who wants to follow Jesus to simply study out what the Bible teaches on the subject of God’s Word, what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, Sin, repentance, baptism and what it means to be part of God’s church. If you are interested in becoming a member, please talk to the person who brought you and they can help you go through a simple, 6-week personal Bible class on how to be a follower of Jesus.
Style and “feel”: Because our church is just getting started, we can offer you the following:
· A warm, friendly family-style environment
· Powerful and practical preaching and teaching
· An opportunity to actually put your faith into practice with other followers of Jesus
Leadership: Rob and Pam Skinner have led and planted churches in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Alaska and Japan. They spent 10 years doing Missionary work in Japan. Rob graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Business Administration and went on to do a masters in Biblical Studies from Trinity Seminary. They have 3 kids, David (21), James (19) and Anne (17).
If you are looking for a church where you can do more than simply spectate, you might like this church. We hope you do and that you will keep coming back, week after week!
