Redemption Stories

Redemption AZ / November 4, 2019

The Importance of Story

We believe that stories are one of the most forming realities that God has made. The stories told in congregations communicate the heart, vision and culture of Redemption Church more than a series of statements ever could.

R/Tempe | Woven

What happens when the plans we made unravel? One year after Martin and Susanne Gonzalez married, they decided they were ready to start their family. Eight years later, the crib in their nursery still stood empty. Martin and Suzanne tell their story of the blessing of waiting on the Lord.

November is #NationalAdoptionMonth – more than 125,000 children are waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States. To find out more about how to get involved email Redemption Church Foster Care, Kinship and Adoption Ministry at:

R/Gateway | Ripple

We are not individuals uninfluenced be those around us. In this story from Redemption Gateway, we see the ways God uses our relationships to speak to us and heal our relationship to Him.

R/Gilbert | Stronghold

What does a church leader do when his faith is in crisis – when he doubts the very existence of God? What is it like to stand in front of crowds, and encourage them to believe and celebrate something which you may not believe yourself? This is the story of the creation of the song Stronghold by Jed Maughan, worship leader at Redemption Gilbert

R/Alhambra | Moises’ Story

Jose Moises Felix, Jr. was 21-year-old young man who took a pill thinking it was Percocet when in fact was Fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that is 50-100 times more potent than morphine. His mother Lupe, found him in his room the next morning – dead. This is both a cautionary tale, and an inspiring story of lived love.
