Serving Others, Serving God

Sharing the Gospel


Our primary goal is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. People matter to Jesus, and we want Jesus to matter to them. "And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.' " (Mark 16:15).

Providing Basic Needs


Along with providing for their spiritual needs, we offer basic physical items such as meals, clothing, and hygiene kits. "And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ " (Matthew 25:40).

Building Relationships


Providing for spiritual and physical needs helps strengthen people and families, lifting them from the bonds of poverty. "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God" (I John 4:7).

Christmas Toy Drive thru Dec. 21, 2019


You Matter Ministries Toy Drive is an annual opportunity for those who have been blessed to bless others. We are collecting new, unwrapped, gifts and toys for children (ages 2 to 18) who may not otherwise receive gifts during the Christmas Season.  Your donations can be placed into the "Toy Boxes" located in Calvary Chapel Surprise lobby (NW corner of Greenway Rd. and Reems), Great Beginnings Preschool in Avondale ( just east of Central Ave. on VanBuren), or by calling Pastor Rick at 623-329-9915.
