About Josue
Nací en Hermosillo una ciudad al norte de México, ahí crecí en un hogar Cristiano, tuve la oportunidad de estudiar en la Universidad la carrera de Administración de Empresas, y trabajé por 6 años en el Gobierno en México. En 2001 Dios me permitió Casarme con el amor de mi vida Mayra y Dios nos ha bendecido con dos hijos, Misael y Michelle. En 2004 Dios nos llama a servirle en Estados Unidos en varios ministerios, pero en 2010 nos llama específicamente a la ciudad de Mesa, donde con la visión y ayuda de otros hermanos en Cristo comenzamos un centro comunitario que ahora por su gracia es la Iglesia Redemption West Mesa. Me encanta servir en nuestra iglesia, y ver como Dios nos muestra su amor al ser tan diferentes unos de otros, pero unidos en y por su amor.

Francisco Espinoza

About Francisco

Nací en San Fernando, México. Crecí en un hogar Cristiano donde mis padres servían a Jesús en la iglesia. Debido a esto, fui instruido a amar y servir a la iglesia de Jesús formando parte del grupo de alabanza. Viví en Texas por 7 años mientras estudiaba mi carrera y maestría en Ingeniería Eléctrica, durante este tiempo me separe un tiempo de Jesús, seguía asistiendo a la iglesia pero mi relación con Él no era tan profunda. Aun así, podía sentir que El me seguía llamando y cuidando de mí.

En el 2012 Dios me trajo a Arizona por medio de un trabajo, en el 2013 me case con mi hermosa esposa Yuridia Espinoza y después de un tiempo de orar para que Dios nos mostrara una iglesia para asistir, Él nos llamó a Redemption West Mesa, donde hemos crecido grandemente en nuestra relación con Jesús y su amor por nosotros. He tenido del privilegio y la oportunidad de servir en el ministerio de niños y el ministerio de alabanza. Amamos formar parte de esta hermosa familia.


I was born in San Fernando, Mexico. I was raised in a Christian family where my parents served Jesus in our church. Due to this, I was educated to love and serve the Church of Jesus by being part of the worship team. I lived in Texas for 7 years while I was pursuing my Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering. During this time I distanced myself from Jesus, I was still assisting church but my relationship with Him weakened. Nonetheless, He was still calling me and caring for me.

In 2012 God brought me to Arizona for work. In 2013 I married my beautiful wife Yuridia Espinoza and after some time of prayer, He called us to Redemption West Mesa. Here, we have grown greatly in our relationship with Jesus and his love for us. I have had the privilege of serving in the children’s ministry and in the worship team. We love being part of the Redemption West Mesa family.

Jeff Hutt

About Jeff

My wife Melanie and I moved to Arizona from Colorado in the fall of 2008 to be closer to our aging parents. We served in urban ministry with our previous church in east Denver.

We were referred to East Valley Bible Church (now Redemption Church) through a former pastor and became connected to community ministry there. We began serving in the West Mesa area with Pastors Chris and Josue at the Broadway Corridor Center. Our early bible studies and core groups continued to grow and expand into Redemption West Mesa. I grew up with a Catholic background and my wife grew up Baptist.

I had knowledge of Jesus as a historical figure but did not have a saving relationship with Him. I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior thru the tragic death of my wife’s brother. We attended his funeral in Georgia. Even though it was a very sad time for my wife’s family, the pastor of his church gave a gospel message that made me realize the need for Jesus in my life. That night, I confessed my sinfulness and asked Jesus for forgiveness, and that it was my desire to follow him. My life radically changed from that point on.

We have been blessed with three older sons and one teenage daughter. We now have two wonderful daughters-in-law and five beautiful grandchildren. It is our desire to continue to serve The Lord and share the good news about Jesus Christ in our community.

Josh Smith

About Josh

I met my wife Maggie at Redemption West Mesa – where else? And started to get to know each other at our church’s first annual Labor Day retreat in Sedona. We were married in April 2015 and have a beautiful daughter, Eva.

Jesus saved me when I was about eight years old, but didn’t really know what it meant to follow Him until I was an adult. Jesus truly changed my life when He was all I had left and I finally began to seek Him.

The thing I love most about Redemption West Mesa is how deep the sense of community is. Everyone truly knows and loves everyone else, and there are so many ways that the church loves its neighbors in the surrounding community.

Since that time, I’ve been in ministry as a pastor’s wife, mother (of two precious daughters and six foster sons), missionary, Christian school teacher, and Biblical Counselor. I love to encourage women in their faith and walk with others through the painful circumstances of life. It is my joy to worship and serve Christ within Redemption West Mesa, my wonderful home church, and serve as a Biblical Counselor with Biblical Counseling of Arizona! I also love to teach little children to read! Above all, I hope that Christ is exalted and people know they are loved through the good news of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross!

Maricela De la Rosa

Deacon / Administrator
About Maricela

I am an Arizona native, raised in Wickenburg. I grew up in a home that didn’t know Jesus. However, my grandparents lived close by and had my brother and I participate regularly in the Catholic church. I lost my mom at 16 years old and was forced into marriage before she passed as a way to help my brother and I survive.

I had glimpses of God’s love and character through people that he brought into my life during this time. I finally had the revelation of learning about what he had done for me and how great his love for me was after my 2nd child was born. What a revelation! Through Jesus, I had the opportunity to have been reconciled to him and have been given his spirit of peace, forgiveness, hope, and love.

I have a Psychology and Early Childhood Development degrees with a background in social work.

I married a man after God’s own heart, and together he and I are raising our 2 sons and our daughter. My family and I have been part of the Redemption family since 2009 when Praxis Church was still around. I have the honor and privilege to serve and love my community at West Mesa by participating in prayer gatherings, children’s ministry, women’s ministry, and at Immigrant Hope. May God continue using me as he wills and may I be open and obedient to follow Him.

Rodrigo De la Rosa

Deacon / Facilities
About Rodrigo
I am a native of AZ. I was Catholic throughout childhood up to my teen years. I married my pulchritudinous wife in the Catholic church. Although I wasn’t in a relationship with Christ, my faith said there is a God, and I wanted His blessing for our union.
Years later, God brought our hearts to find Him and a Christian church. All thanks to Him and the people He put in our lives. I am a graduate of Devry University. We have been blessed with 3 children. I have been running to and from God throughout my life, and I’m happy to say that He keeps running after me and calling to me. Thankfully, God has always put people in my path that shared Godly advice.
I found Redemption West Mesa as I was looking for a bilingual Christian church for my father, but God called my family and I instead to love and serve His church here. I enjoy helping and serving in the kids and worship ministries.

Saul Guerrero

Youth Director / Deacon / Worship
About Saul

I was born in Hermosillo, Sonora Mexico. When I was about 4 years old, my family immigrated to the United States. Ever since then, Phoenix has been my home. My mom and dad raised three young boys in the church and throughout different parts of The Valley.

I met Jesus at an early age, but my relationship with him grew deeper around the age of 21 serving in a church plant in South Phoenix. Later on, I served in a Hispanic church in the Maryvale area. It is there where I met my wife. We served together for years with the youth, building relationships and sharing the Gospel.

My wife and I heard about Redemption Church through my brother, who serves at Redemption Alhambra. When we first came to Redemption West Mesa, we felt welcomed, a sense of belonging, and a calling to serve in a multicultural/multiethnic bilingual church. For the past seven years, we have growing, serving, and raising our two daughters at Redemption West Mesa. We feel blessed and joyful with what God is doing in our lives.

On Being a Local Congregation of Redemption Church


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.

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.

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.
