About the Church:
Flagstaff Community Church is a church plant in Flagstaff, AZ. Our Mission is to "call the people of Flagstaff and Northern Arizona to full devotion to Jesus Christ. Our Vision is, F - Follow Christ, L - Live in Authentic Community, A - Abide in the Word, G- Give our lives radically for the Glory of God and the good of the city. We launched on April 9th, 2013. Currently we have 120 adults and 40-50 children through the 7th grade along with a handful of high school and college students. One of the original planters has laid a great foundation for family and small group ministry, but his passion and calling is not in either of those areas. He has decided with his wife and_noemailmunity group that it is time to move on to other endeavors and leave the ministry in the hands of a more passionate and qualified leader.
