Pastor Jeff and Carla Peterson joined Fountain Hills Christian Center in November of 2019. Pastor Jeff serves as our part-time Lead/Teaching pastor while continuing to serve as the Pastoral Care Director of the Arizona Ministry Network, working with A/G pastors all across our state. On Sundays, we are privileged to enjoy his teaching ministry.

Previously, they served in youth and young adult ministry at Phoenix First Assembly (1984-1992). They have three married daughters and five grandchildren.
They love Arizona and are thankful to have returned here to minister in 2017. He has a shepherd’s heart for people, loves to honor and speak God’s word, and believes God has great things in store for our church.
