We are multi-congregational in structure.

Our Mission

The local church is God's chosen instrument to communicate the good news of the Gospel. In word and deed, the local church is called to represent what God has done and where He is taking the world. We are his witnesses and His ambassadors. We are sent into the world, but set apart as a light to the nations. As we go, we are to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

In light of this mission, Redemption Church is structured to support the multiplication and health of local churches. We are structured to help unique, contextualized local congregations be faithful to their calling as God's people. The central organization, leadership, and brand of 'Redemption Church' exist for the sake of the congregations, not the other way around.

Mission and Structure

“We exist to glorify God by birthing and strengthening healthy local congregations.”

Leadership Development

We are intentional with structured efforts to develop, release, and support leaders. We invest heavily in theological education and church planting, while also providing internships and pastoral residencies for those pursuing vocational ministry.


Each Redemption congregation is led by a team of local elders and staff. The unified body of Redemption Church (all congregations) is overseen by a Leadership Team.

Aaron Dailey

About Aaron

My wife’s name is Dana and we have been Married for 15 years. I have 5 children: 2 boys and 3 girls. Their names are Kyros, Ezra, Hadessah, Selah, Ariah.

I am a Pastor/Missionary Kid with 5 brothers. My family is a great blessing and has passed down a strong Godly heritage. God graciously worked on my heart and saved me from self-righteousness and pride. The Grace of God freed me from slavery and empowered me to be his son. I felt God’s calling to preach at the age of 14 years old. God has given me a heart for urban inner city Gospel ministry and so at the age of 24 we planted a church in Alhambra Village. Our heart has only grown as we have become apart of the neighborhood. We love what God is doing in us as we are daily experiencing God’s grace. After all these years of life in Jesus and pastoral ministry I am more aware of how much I need God’s grace.

Luke Simmons

About Luke

Lead Pastor of Redemption Gateway

I’ve been married to Molly since 2001. We have three daughters, Abby, Caitlin and Mary and one son, Hank. We like to laugh, play, swim, watch football, and learn.

Without Jesus, my life has been marked by arrogance, selfishness, and pride. I took pride in my morality and looked down on others who didn’t seem as good as me. God took ahold of my life through a neighbor who invested in my life as a 17 year old and challenged me to read the book of John with him, where I encountered who Jesus really is. Jesus is my treasure because he rescued me from the guilt, shame and punishment of sin that I deserve and he gave me new life in him. He is the King of kings and I want to live for him. Jesus is changing my life now by allowing me to see that I never outgrow my need for him. I am more sinful than I ever dared believe, and more loved and accepted by Jesus than I ever dared hope.

I graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Speech Communication, where I played baseball and married the prettiest girl on the swim team. I’m currently working on a Masters degree from the Missional Training Center.

Neil Pitchel

About Neil

Pastor of Central Operations

Kate and I were married in August of 1977. We have a daughter Cali who is a content director at an advertising firm in Seattle. Our son David lives in Gilbert. We’re all avid sports fans (mostly Boston teams). Kate and I love to travel, especially on cruises.

I was raised in a Jewish family in Boston so I knew nothing of Biblical Christianity until I first heard the gospel while a student at UMASS. After many years of struggling with the difference between my Jewish upbringing and the “gospel of grace” I decided Jesus was a great teacher and prophet like Abraham or Moses. Then I read “Mere Christianity” by CS Lewis and had to decide if Jesus was Lord, liar or lunatic. After reading the New Testament and watching the lives of Christians I knew there was only one possibility that He was indeed my Lord and Savior.

Tim Maughan

About Tim

Lead Pastor of Redemption Gilbert

I have been married to Susanne since 1984. We have four sons. Benjamin, Jedaiah, Jesse, Eli.

I grew up in a pastors home but didn’t know christ until my college years. Its always true that God shows you the bad news of our sin before he shows us the good news of his grace.

Thats what God did for me in the summer of 1980. I saw my sin for the first time as something that was a big deal to God and something I couldn’t deal with. I embraced the forgiveness of God that was provided through the finished work of Christ on the cross.

Its now 32 years later and I’m even more blown away now at what God provides in Jesus than I was then.

Tyler Johnson

About Tyler

I have been been married to Hayley since 2002 and we have 4 children, two boys and two girls.

I grew up in a family that was passionate about baseball and nominally “Christian”, sort of a default “American” identity. But when I was 17 God began to truly move in me and around me. By the time I was 18 I had surrendered to Christ.

I went on to play baseball at Arizona State University. It was during my five year baseball career there that God laid hold of my life, exposing those things I had previously found security in. In 2000 I sensed a strong call into local church ministry. At the end of my baseball career at ASU my pastoral ministry career began and has continued to move forward.
