A CHURCH FOR THE REST OF US?
Via de Cristo Faith Community is a warm and energized progressive Christian gathering, denominationally independent and open to inter-tradition dialogue.
What draws us together is more about a simpler way of being followers of Jesus, including our questions and the value of conversation as we walk together, ...exploring, ...learning, ...enriched by the sharing of our individual and varied faith journeys.
We acknowledge, and respect, and learn from the uniqueness of each individual and the distinctives of their own spiritual journeys. This is a meaningfully different and dynamic premise which contrasts with holding in common a particular defined set of beliefs or creeds or doctrines,
At the heart of Via de Cristo is the simple touchstone of the ways of Jesus, and how those ways come to life in our hands and feet, ...in our own time and place, to touch and change lives in ways that matter.

May 27, 2018 - Dean Hosni joins us this Sunday as guest speaker. His message, "My Journey in Islam".
Dean currently serves as Interfaith Coordinator for the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona.
Born into Islam, he has seen his religion change over his lifetime. So this will be a great opportunity to get a sense of what he sees as a Muslim that has changed in Islam, and what remains unchanged.
Dean has served in the insurance and financial services industry for 28 years. He holds a BA in economics from the University of Southern California. He is professionally credentialed as a Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter, and is currently pursuing a Masters in Organizational Leadership at Gonzaga University.
