Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Palm Vista.

When Wendy and I moved to Surprise in September 2003, we found ourselves in an exciting and growing place filled with opportunity. However, we quickly began missing the family and friends that we left when we moved here, and we began looking for a place where we could find a new sense of belonging.

We found the connections we were missing in a community of faith called Palm Vista.

The most wonderful thing about Palm Vista is its people. Palm Vista is filled with friendly and encouraging people from all ages and backgrounds who have come together to worship God and grow in their faith in Him. My prayer for you is that, at Palm Vista, you will find what Wendy and I have found a place to call home.
