Showing the love of God to people in our city, and around the world.

How can you make a difference?

Local Good

By working with local missions partners, we are helping to empower our communities, strengthen families, and stand against injustice.

Global Good

By our commitment to partnering with local churches around the world, McDowell.Church gets to participate in the transformation of communities, by bringing hope through relationships, being present during crisis relief efforts, and mobilizing the Church for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.


The SERVE Team is a group of incredible people that have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them.


We have a goal to see 100% of people who call McDowell home SERVE 2x a year outside the walls of this building. We believe SERVE Week is one of the best opportunities for you to take this step in learning to love.

God has uniquely equipped us to stand in the gap for these five issues facing our world today. Click on each to learn more.

  • At-Promise Youth

    There are more than 12,000 children are in our Arizona State foster care system. And every year more than 800 children “age out” of the system when they turn 18 without finding a forever family. In fact, research shows that young people who aged out of the foster care system have a higher chance of experiencing unemployment, homelessness, and incarceration as adults. We want to change that narrative.

  • Community Development

    We believe when communities are trained and equipped to care for their most vulnerable, the entire community is lifted and poverty can be overcome. Our partners serve communities through life-changing resources such as clean water, food, medical aid, safe and sustainable housing, equal educational opportunities, vocational training, and empowerment in the midst of unimaginable hardships.

  • Food + Water Crisis

    1 out of 6 children in developing countries are underweight, and 1 out of 6 children in our state are facing hunger. We work to raise awareness and support because we know that eliminating local and global hunger is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. When individuals living in poverty have increased access to food there is improvement in overall health, which allows for increased productivity and eventual escape from poverty.

  • Human Trafficking

    Human trafficking is a global issue that often impacts the most vulnerable people among us. This exploitation includes sex slavery, child soldiers, and forced labor, all of which violate people’s rights and dignity. Together, with our partners, we are helping these victims find restoration.

  • Refugee Crisis

    Today, there are more people seeking safety and asylum than ever before. And with the brokenness around our world, that number will continue to grow. But we, as followers of Jesus Christ, have been called to stand in the gap and stand for the refugee.

Through relationships, generous financial support, and our SERVE Teams, we’re proud to partner with these organizations. Join us as we make a difference in the valley and around the world.
