Chris Amaro

Lead Pastor of Redemption West Mesa
About Chris

My primary role is to lead Redemption Church West Mesa. I am trying to build the church from the ground up by the power of Jesus who builds his Church. My primary task is to equip the church for works of service. This means I am trying to keep people on mission, proclaiming the gospel, making disciples, & living for God’s glory. I am responsible for the organization of the church, communication, budget, Sunday Worship, Redemption Communities, etc. I am also the primary preaching pastor.

I was born & raised in Arizona, I am the oldest of 11 siblings, and grew up relatively unchurched. I had brief experiences in church growing up & even believe in a god but didn’t know Jesus. Growing up I never heard of grace all I heard was what you had to do & how if you screw up you are a back-slider, because of this I thought that you had to clean yourself up to work your way to heaven. I wanted nothing to do with this as I got into my teen years. I wanted to have fun and worry about the religious stuff later.

My freshman year in High School I was invited to Young Life & attended their Summer camp in northern California called Woodleaf. It was there that I first heard that Jesus loved sinners & wanted to have a relationship with me. It was June of 1996 after the camp speaker told us how Jesus died on the cross for our sins that Jesus changed my heart. I remember praying “I don’t know what this means Jesus, all I know is I want to follow you.”

I have been married for 5 years now to my amazing wife Ruthie Amaro. We met at Young Life camp & were engaged after 4 months of dating, and married 3 months after that! I have 3 daughters Olivia who is 4yrs old, Sophia who is 2yrs old, and Newborn Emilia who was born on December 24th, 2012.

Josue Lopez

Community and Worship Pastor
About Josue

I was born in Hermosillo, Mexico and raised in a Christian home. I got my degree in Business Administration from the University of Sonora. I’ve been married to the love of my life, Mayra. I have two kids: Misael, born in September 2002, and Michelle, born in February 2007. For nine years I was leading worship at my church in Mexico. In late 2004, the Lord brought us to America to minister in the Latino community, working for Redemption Church Gilbert (formerly East Valley Bible Church). In 2010 we moved to the city of Mesa to work in the El Puente Community Center (formerly Broadway Corridor)  and to lead the worship in the new church plant, Redemption West Mesa.

Nací en Hermosillo, México y crecí en un hogar cristiano. Obtuve mi licenciatura en Administración de Empresas en la Universidad de Sonora. He estado casada con el amor de mi vida, Mayra. Tengo dos hijos: Misael, nacido en septiembre de 2002, y Michelle, nacidos en febrero de 2007. Durante nueve años dirigí la alabanza en mi iglesia en México. A finales de 2004, el Señor nos trajo a América para ministrar en la comunidad latina, que trabaje para la Iglesia Redemption Gilbert (anteriormente East Valley Bible Church). En 2010 nos trasladamos a la ciudad de Mesa para trabajar en el Centro Comunitario de El Puente (antes Broadway Corridor) y para dirigir la alabanza y los ministerios de comunidad en la nueva Iglesia plantada de Redemption West Mesa.

Joel Chaira

Stage of Life Pastor
About Joel

My ministry is to teach children, youth and adults to become fully mature believers who have a love for Jesus and a desire to share that love with others through relationships, witness and community.

My story began when Christ came looking for me and I surrendered my life to him in 1995. I worked for Bashas’ at the time and finished 20 years with them before being called into full time ministry in 2006. After four years I completed college with a Bachelors of Science in Biblical Studies. During that time I planted a Spanish church that met for about 2 years. After that I met Chris Amaro and Josue Lopez at an Acts 29 boot camp and began helping them plant what would become Redemption West Mesa. My wife and I love the work that is being done to minister to this community and have never felt more cared for and fulfilled in ministry than we do with Redemption Church.

My wife and I have been married for 24 years and we have two grown children, Alycia 23 and Zachary 21. My daughter is married to my son-in-law Matthew Pittman and they have given us a beautiful granddaughter, Alyah 18 months. My son is currently attending Arizona Christian University.

 

Mi historia comenzó cuando Cristo vino a buscarme y yo entrege mi vida a él en 1995. Trabajé para Bashas ‘en el momento y terminó 20 años con ellos antes de ser llamado al ministerio a tiempo completo en el año 2006. Después de cuatro años he terminado la universidad con una Licenciatura en Ciencias en Estudios Bíblicos. Durante ese tiempo he plantado una iglesia española que se reunió por cerca de 2 años. Después de eso me encontré con Chris Amaro y Josué López en un campo de entrenamiento de Hechos 29 y empecé a ayudarles a plantar lo que se convertiría Redención West Mesa. Mi esposa y me encanta el trabajo que se está haciendo para atender a esta comunidad y nunca han sentido más cuidado y cumplida en el ministerio de lo que hacemos con la Redención Iglesia.

Mi esposa y yo hemos estado casados durante 24 años y tenemos dos hijos mayores, Alycia 23 y Zachary 21. Mi hija está casada con mi hijo-en-ley Mateo Pittman y nos han dado una hermosa nieta, Alyah 18 meses. Mi hijo está asistiendo a la Universidad Cristiana de Arizona.

On Being a Local Congregation of Redemption Church

REDEMPTION'S MULTI-CONGREGATIONAL STRUCTURE

Redemption church is multi-congregational in structure. This means that a central governing body provides structure, direction, and support for the ministry of each local congregation. Local congregations, like Redemption West Mesa, are united and collaborative, but each has its own leadership and is free to contextualize its efforts. Click on the link below to learn more about the overall structure of Redemption.

REDEMPTION'S BELIEFS AND PRACTICES

We are a non-denominational church with a Reformed view of salvation. We believe that all of life is all for Jesus. We have been saved by grace through faith, which is itself a gift. That gift empowers us to be a transformed people who embody His redemptive power and participate in the renewal of all things.

REDEMPTION'S OUTWARD FOCUS

We are a sent people. As the church we are not called to turn inward and build our own kingdom. We are called to turn outward and give ourselves to the spread of the Gospel, the establishment of healthy local churches, and the multiplication of disciples. This is a call to invest beyond our church, beyond our tribe, and beyond our generation.

Community and Global Initiatives

We strongly believe that all members of the body of Christ are sent people, called to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to the world. Therefore our community and global efforts should never be limited to structured programs. However, in response to the needs in our community, and God's heart for the nations, we do build global partnerships and facilitate opportunities to participate in God's mission of blessing the nations in Christ.
