Our hope is that you find SP a life giving church with an environment where people are encouraged, equipped, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, and serving becomes a way of life.

When Jesus walked on the earth, he invited all kinds of people to “come follow” him. Most of them were a little rough around the edges: tax collectors, burly fishermen and (gasp!) prostitutes. Many of them risked everything to follow and their lives drastically changed. The religious people – the ones who kept God in a nice, neat rule book – rarely said yes.



we aren’t much for following rules.

We would rather follow Jesus. Just real people with real problems, real joys, living real life, seeking to love God and love people, and to do the stuff Jesus did. We’re not perfect and we don’t expect you to be. We are serious about creating a community where we genuinely love, encourage and train ordinary people to simply follow Jesus in today’s world. Sounds simple, but it’s rarely easy, sometimes messy and usually risky. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we hope you’ll visit us.


Mission & Vision

To be a community of believers that is radically devoted to Jesus, passionately committed to one another, and relentlessly focused on reaching those who have "not yet" decided to follow Jesus Christ. 

John 3:16&17



Our strategy is to create simple environments where everyone’s welcome because nobody’s perfect and anything’s possible.  We’ve designed an easy step by step process to help people on their journey to becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Who is starting POINT church for?

We are not interested in persuading Christians away from their home church to come to ours. 


Our primary focus will be to reach out to the “non-churched” (those with no church background) and the “de-churched” (those who have had a negative experience with Christianity and have lost interest in the church) as well as “displaced Christians” (those who have some level of faith but have not found a church in which they truly feel at home)….  But at the same time we embrace those who have allowed Jesus to capture their heart.  Those who are excited about the adventurous dream of reaching people who are far away from God, and who are willing to serve over being served.


Jt and Rachel have the privilege to be involved in ministry for over 30 years.  Their journey has led them to take passionate steps of faith in leaving their Kentucky home, family and friends to plant “Starting Point Church” in Prescott Arizona. 

Josh and Maya were born and raised in Prescott, AZ. Josh has a deep desire to lead people into God's presence through worship and songs. He has a heart to see people come to know Christ more intimately. He serves as the Worship Director. Maya is his best ally and wife who is there to help in any way she can. She sings and leads people in worship alongside Josh.

Melissa has served in Christian ministry for over 25 years. She is passionate about seeing wounded hearts healed, bondages broken, and destinies proclaimed through the truth and power of God’s Word. Melissa holds a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary. She serves as the Connections Pastor and Financial Director for Starting Point.

Chrissy and her husband Steve moved to Prescott in 2018. Chrissy has the pleasure of overseeing Starting Point Adventure Kids and is loving every minute of it! Chrissy has been educating and ministering to children around the country and around the world through teaching, puppets, magic, balloons, and other creative means since she was a teenager. Chrissy has a Bachelor in Religious Education and a Masters in Early Childhood Education. She currently works as a teacher in a local school as well.
