I preach, teach, counsel and console both members and visitors of our congregation. It is my honor to lead and supervise our paid staff.

DIRECTOR OF WORSHIP & MUSIC

 Jerry Gunderson

 

jgunderson@allsaintsphoenix.org

I plan liturgy and music for our worship services and lead the worshipping assembly in songs of prayer, proclamation and praise. Our music ministry includes a wide variety of vocal and instrumental ensembles and soloists, and my leadership of these groups includes scheduling, choosing repertoire, composing/arranging, and directing rehearsals. I enjoy working as part of our staff ministry team, and I provide administrative leadership to All Saints’ worship committee. I also sing with two community choirs, which is a great way to get new ideas and make contacts with local musicians. I am blessed and thankful to serve God’s people here at All Saints.

DIRECTOR OF SUNDAY SCHOOL AND YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS

With the help of many volunteers, a heaven-sent assistant and the grace of God, I oversee the Sunday School program here at All Saints. Children from 2 years old through 6th grade meet with their peers, teen and adult shepherds and teachers for our rotational lesson program. I also plan family oriented events such as the annual picnic and movie and game nights to help build relationships between our families. The Jr. and High schoolers gather for monthly meetings and meals, as well as lock-ins and weekend retreats. Almost every year the youth get on a plane or bus and head off on a mission trip. We have traveled to places such as Colorado, California, Michigan and New Orleans just in the past few years. I am truly blessed to be joining these kids and families on their faith journeys.

Pastor for Intergenerational Ministry

Kristin Rice

 

 krice@allsaintsphoenix.org

What’s a “Pastor for Intergenerational Ministry?”  I’m so glad you asked!  My responsibilities in this role, first and foremost, will be to serve as a pastor to the whole congregation through worship leadership, preaching, and pastoral care.  I will also continue to serve as Stewardship Team Lead and will work closely with our Stephen Ministry leaders, while engaging with the Congregational Council in our ongoing visioning work.  Additionally, I bear some responsibility for helping our members learn, grow, and experience fellowship through the various ages and stages of life.  This includes oversight of our staff and programs in the areas of senior ministries, children and family ministries, and youth ministry/confirmation.  In addition to supporting quality programs and milestone recognitions that are appropriate for each age group, part of my job is to help create opportunities for people from different age groups to engage their faith together.            Contact me at 602.866.9191 ext. 109

DIRECTOR OF SENIOR MINISTRIES

I lead the Senior Ministry Team, which is a volunteer group of older adults. The team creates, plans and facilitates programs, activities and educational events for elders. We also provide resources related to elder care and aging issues. Most importantly, we strive to make and maintain relationships with the elderly population of the church. It is a privilege and a blessing to work with our older members.

DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN'S MUSIC

Betty Erickson

My goal is to provide the children of All Saint’s with a background in Christian music, help them to develop an appreciation for music in worship, and allow them to find the joy in participating in the music ministry by singing and using instruments.

I lead the singing for preschool and kindergarten Sunday School classes, the Alleluia Singers (choir of 1st through 6th graders), and organize the musical Christmas play for preschool through 6th grade students. Many thanks to all the volunteers who help and support our children’s music.

COORDINATOR - ADULT ED & WORSHIP LEADERSHIP

I coordinate the Adult Education and Worship Leadership Team. My main responsibilities are to offer support to the Small Groups and adult education programming through scheduling of classrooms, acquiring curriculum materials and publicity. Worship Leadership, or as Pr. Dan calls it, “Worship Practical” involves the support, retention, recruitment and training of volunteers in worship leadership, support and hospitality. I also coordinate “Discovery,” the five week class for those that wish to become members of All Saints.

I oversee the day to day operation of the church office. I support the pastors and program staff as needed. I assist the Publication Administrator, Website/Media Administrator and Financial Administrator as needed. I keep our membership and contribution database current.

CARING MINISTRIES

I participate in and/or serve as the staff liaison for the following areas of Caring Ministries: Stephen Ministry, Grief Support and Homebound Visitation.

Caring Ministries seek to be responsive to the spiritual, emotional, physical and mental health of those who participate in our church family as well as those who come to us from our community. Because what we do and say, and how we serve in our congregations and communities, matters to the whole church of God, we continue to seek out those among us who are in need of healing, uplifting and renewal in order for them to move forward with their changing and, sometimes, challenging lives.

What a privilege to be in ministry with so many caring people!
