A Merry Christmas Concert performed by the Southern Arizona Women’s Chorus
Many folks enjoyed an amazing evening not only to listen, but actually become a part of the fun. The audience was divvied up into small groups corresponding to the 12 Days of Christmas. Oh my gosh! There was laughing, popping up and sitting down at their designated time to sing, and cheering for who did the best. So much fun. As they walked out to go home, every one of them talked about how much fun they had and hoped we would have a Christmas concert again next year.
The Essence of Biblical Theology
Wow! Unity in action. This seminar was a collaboration of 5 ministries; Via de Dios, Resonance Journal, Ministry Resources Institute, J17 Ministries, and JA Simms Ventures. Over 40 people from several different churches attended. God is moving in Tucson! Get Onboard!
Tucson Worship Conference
Via de Dios is honored to be a part of the sixth annual Tucson Worship Conference. Beginning with 150 participants in 2013, the conference has grown to over 400 participants and over 30 different churches not only from Tucson but from all over Arizona. Talk about Unity!
Via de Dios’ first event, BarnRaising Fun, was just that. Attendees sat down to a family style dinner of delicious food catered by Iron Chef John Haan of GAP Ministries Kitchen. Tony Simms, Vice President of Via de Dios, shared Via de Dios’ short history including classes and hosting events that described how Via de Dios is filling the need of our community of individuals and organizations. He also told of the limitations we have at our current location and the need to grow into our own facility. Francine Rienstra, President, gave a visual tour of what the Via de Dios Christian Center could look like and the many services we could provide with a larger campus. Dave Drum painted a picture by asking us to Imagine. He emphasized how badly a center like this is needed and his own frustration with trying to find the right places to offer events like John 17 weekends, Pastor Prayer Summits, Pastor meetings, as well as a hub to bring churches together in harmony. Ed Noble brought it all together by asking everyone to understand the time, effort, and cost in developing this incredible center. He urged folks to see that we need a place to bring people and organizations together and that the gifts they donate help to operate and build Tucson’s only Christian Center.
