Keith Bethel, Pastor - with wife, Rebeccah
Keith Bethel came to Laveen in 2005 with the vision of planting a new church that would be a connecting place for the people of South Phoenix. Pastor Keith's dream is to get people connected to one another and to God in such a way that we cease being a collection of individuals and begin functioning as the body of Christ...a fellowship of true believers...taking God's challenge to grow and making an impact in the church community as well as the Laveen community.
Keith is a graduate of Wheaton College and Denver Seminary. He is married to his best friend, Rebeccah. We love
the outdoors and we love living here in Arizona. And most of all...we love living here in Laveen!

Crystal Marvin, Passages Kids Director

Crystal brings experience, excellence and enthusiasm to our Passages Kids program. She has a love for her
husband Patrick, and her family, that is exceeded only by her love for her Savior. Crystal believes kids need to be challenged to grow in their faith and she has a way of doing that while making it super fun for the kids and volunteers. Crystal and Patrick are the proud parents of four boys. From oldest to youngest they are: Malcolm, Ben, Jesse and Shane.
Ben Howell - Youth Ministry
Ben Howell has been leading our Passages youth for the past three years. He is a graduate of Grand Canyon University and is now pursuing a masters degree at the seminary level. Ben just married his college sweetheart (2019) Jess Fenzel. We are so happy to have Ben and Jess working with our junior and senior high youth. Two mission trips to inner city Louisville, Kentucky and one trip to Puerto Rico are just one of the ways this dynamic couple gets kids connected and challenges them to grow in their faith. Their midweek small groups are well attended and newcomers are always made to feel welcome.
