1 Mountain Avenue Church of Christ Tucson, Arizona Position Profile 2014

2 Mission Statement As a community of believers who have received God s Spirit by his grace, the Mountain Avenue Church of Christ is committed to being God s grace to our surrounding communities: the University, the youth, and those fighting on the front lines of life. Being Grace means Acceptance We accept you as you are when you come and we accept one another with our differences as we move together toward Christ. Relationship We connect with each other personally as we build friendships that nurture and challenge us to live for Christ. Community We build our church family around our faith in Jesus and our fellowship with each other in order to show Christ to the world.

3 Church History Who we are Our church family meets in a retro building in the Hedrick Acres neighborhood of northern downtown Tucson, just over a mile from the University of Arizona. We support an active Christian presence on the UA campus. We are surrounded by four beautiful mountain ranges that attract people from across the country for year-round outdoor activities. One block from our church building is a women s substance abuse rehabilitation center, whose residents are also a part of our service and outreach efforts. We share our building and fellowship with an active Spanish-speaking church family. Our building is also home to Lend-A-Hand, a community based organization which partners volunteers with seniors in the neighborhood who need a little help. Within the last few years, we have begun to support a ministry to provide housing in the Mexican city of Puerto Penasco. We host an annual Youth Rally and are active with youth groups in Tucson, Phoenix, Southern Arizona and the Southwest. Where we ve been Christians began meeting together at the corner of Santa Rita and Mabel in This congregation is the root of the present Mountain Avenue Church. About 30 years later, members decided to build a new meeting place near the University of Arizona. The building was completed in 1961 and became known as the University Church of Christ. Eleven years later the University Church and nearby Catalina Church of Christ merged and became known as the Mountain Avenue Church of Christ. Over the years the church has been involved with various ministries to the poor. One of these was providing a monthly meal at Primavera, an agency working to help the homeless get back on their feet. Kids Eat Here provided children with nutritional meals. The congregation was also involved in a prison ministry for a time.

4 Who we are looking for The Mountain Avenue Church of Christ is seeking a preaching minister of Godly character who will lead us on our mission, being able to converse easily with those of younger generations while speaking God s word into their lives. He should also have a strong sense of pastoral responsibility, possessing the ability to provide excellent ministerial care to those who are more elderly. His sermon messages should be mission minded and proclaimed in a way that is meaningful to all generations. Visit our website at or faceboook: https://www.facebook.com/mountainavenuecoctucson. We welcome the opportunity to share our faith-walk with you and learn more about yours.

5 MACC Outreach Relationships Ambassadors for Christ is a group that is dedicated to being Christ on campus and Living in the Shadow of the C.R.O.S.S. Christ Relationships Outreach Spiritual Growth Service Ambassadors for Christ is a registered student organization on the U of A campus, and has the benefit of advertising and meeting on campus free of charge. Most of the ministry takes place between August and May; during the school year. We have several on-campus meetings available, including Wednesday Night Praise, small groups, and leadership training both for under-graduate and graduate students The Mountain Avenue Church of Christ is one of four supporting congregations to Ambassadors for Christ (A4C). Mountain Avenue utilizes A4C to reach out to any college-aged persons usually students attending University of Arizona or Pima Community College in order to develop a relationship with them and bring them into the community of God s believers. A4C actively participates in service projects that include fundraising for renovations at Camp Christian Echoes near Sonoita, AZ, which is used for retreats, on-campus intramural sports to reach out to those students that want to play sports, but do not have a team; and participating in youth rallies for youth groups across Arizona. Due to its proximity to the campus, some members of A4C, including campus minister Jesse Warren, regularly attend Mountain Avenue and participate in the leading of the service in various capacities. A4C also travels to other congregations throughout Tucson in order to lead services and reach out to other college students. Mountain Avenue Church of Christ has a strong investment in A4C and the college students to whom it reaches out.

6 MACC Outreach Relationships Mountain Avenue Youth Group We are a small but active youth group led by our volunteer youth minister Jessica Knapp. We reach out to many non-traditional teens. Our teens meet with other youth groups regularly, traveling around the state for youth rallies, retreats, and mission trips. We also like to be a part of the Southern Arizona Bible Camp Teen Week; in fact we have sponsored teen week for four of the last five years. Mountain Avenue hosts an area-wide Youth Rally annually, an event which entails breaking up into small groups in order to serve the community. We often work with the homeless in Tucson. We love to hang out and have fun, but are trying to be more mission and service minded. We seek to be a light to teens in our community.

7 MACC Outreach Relationships Lend-A-Hand Senior Assistance is a growing coalition of central Tucson neighborhoods, faith-based communities, and business partnerships. They are a non-profit organization and a member of the Neighbors Care Alliance, a program administered through Pima Council on Aging. They have volunteers who offer support to help seniors by providing transportation, visits, and access to other resources. Their services allow older residents to continue to live independently in their own homes and remain a vital part of their community. Mountain Ave is the central location for Lend-A-Hand. We have a member on the board of directors, their offices are in our building, and they use the building for events, trainings, etc. Each year, members of our church volunteer with Lend-A-Hand in our neighborhod. The Haven is a drug and alcohol treatment facility for women and their children in our neighborhood. Their vision is of a safe, drug free, nurturing, and compassionate community that respects individuals and their families, while encouraging their spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical development. The Haven s mission is to advance this vision by treating clients as they recover from drug and alcohol dependency, and transition into lives of health and wholeness. Mountain Ave seeks to aid the women and children who are part of the Haven by offering them a focused Bible Study on Sunday mornings, clothing and necessary supplies to aid in their transition to healthy living, and a computer lab for their use. Hermanos Viejos is a group of guys from the western United States who volunteer their time and resources to help those in need in Mexico. Projects include home building and repair. Mountain Ave typically has a few members who join this group as well as others who help fund the work. We also offer support and transportation resources for the group as Tucson is a good gateway to Mexico.

8 The City of Tucson Tucson has been continuously settled for over 12,000 years. It celebrates a diversity of cultures, architecture, and peoples. It is also one of the "Mega-Trend" cities of the 21st Century: the Optics Valley, premier health services center for the Southwest, the astronomy center of the world, home of a premier research institution - University of Arizona, and a tourism destination. Tucson is situated in the Sonoran Desert and is surrounded by five mountain ranges. A trip from the 2,389-foot valley floor to the 9,157-foot Mt. Lemmon summit (home to the southernmost ski area in the continental United States) traverses seven of the world's nine life zones. It's like driving from Mexico to Canada. Blessed with the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert and an unsurpassed climate of 360 sunny days a year, Tucsonans embrace a rare lifestyle and are committed to preserving that quality of life.

9 The City of Tucson Tucson is the perfect place for the outdoor enthusiast. With more than 800 miles of bike paths, Tucson has been ranked by Bicycling magazine as one of the top cycling cities in the U.S. for several years running and is home to internationally known bicycling events such as El Tour de Tucson. Golf is another popular activity with dozens of regional golf courses, including five municipally-owned courses. Tucson has been referred to as a "mini-mecca for the arts It is one of a select few cities of its size that boasts its own ballet company, professional theater, symphony, and opera company. It also is home to 215 art groups, and has more than 35 art galleries in the downtown area alone. Tucson s natural history and cultural heritage are also on display in the 30+ regional museums, 12 of which are located on the route of the upcoming Modern Streetcar. Tucson was originally an Indian village called Stook-zone, meaning water at the foot of black mountain. Hugo O'Conor established the Tucson Presidio in August 20th, 1775 is considered Tucson's birthday. Spanish settlers arrived in the area in Tucson officially became part of the United States with the Gadsden Purchase of Tucson served as capital of the Arizona Territory from 1867 to 1877.

10 The City of Tucson The City is home to the University of Arizona and Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The City's industries include electronics, optics, and missile production. We have the largest collection of optical telescopes in the world, with some of the finest night watching sky conditions. The Tucson metropolitan area supports over 750,000 residents and continues to grow by nearly 2,000 new residents each month. Tucson's rich cultural heritage centers around a unique blend of Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Anglo-American influences. These can be seen in the Hispanic barrios, American architecture and the prehistoric Native American remnants. Today, Tucson has a significant portion of the population that is unchurched. About 45% of the population is affiliated with a religious congregation; of that number 60% are Catholic, 6% Southern Baptists, and 5% Jewish. The other 55% of the population lists themselves as not affiliated with a particular religion. This strong secular influence in Tucson represents a challenge and a great opportunity to perform "mission" work here in the US. Tucson boasts the best of both worlds...the progress and innovation of a metropolitan community and the friendly, caring atmosphere of a small town.
