A people of extravagant welcome.

A Church With A Mission

We give back to our community through mission projects that address local, regional and international needs. We strive to bring comfort and material assistance to all God's children.


Our rich history starts in 1980 as a community church dedicated to our local community and mission activities. We grew over the years, built our beautiful church campus and joined the United Church of Christ denomination.

Our church began in 1980 meeting in the local museum as a community church of believers gathered from many different denominations drawn together by a common affirmation of the teachings of Jesus. We also had a  deep desire to serve God by being active in our own community serving those in need and giving tithes and gifts to ministries around the world.

In 2004 we built and dedicated our beautiful church as a gift from God.

In 2010 the congregation voted to affiliate with the United Church of Christ as a part of the Southwest Conference. We work together in mission and fellowship with our sister churches in Arizona and New Mexico.


Rev. Dr. Kristina "Tina" Cambell

Dr. Campbell, who prefers to be called “Tina,” was one of the first women ordained in the United Church of Christ, and much of her ministry has been with the marginalized.  After completing her Master of Divinity United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, Tina took her clinical training at Hazelden/Betty Ford, and worked in the field of recovery for many years, serving as the director of a residential treatment center in Victoria, British Columbia, Chief Therapist at St. Luke’s Hospital and creating and implementing an outpatient program for chemical dependency for Camelback Hospital.  During this time, Tina completed her Doctor of Ministry degree and became a Board Certified Chaplain.  

Tina was Director of the Tempe Schools Prevention Resource Center, a program that placed Student Assistance Programs in all of the Tempe schools K-12.  She also served as the Crisis Counselor for Xavier College Prep.  These programs were designed to give students the assistance they needed to stay in school and complete their educations.  

Tina spent ten years as a full-time prison Chaplain, beginning in the Maximum Security Unit in Florence, Arizona, and serving in all levels of prison with  men and women, the mentally ill, and the criminally insane.  It is her belief that the Church becomes its full self when ministering to those whom Jesus called us to serve.  

Tina has also served as a hospice Chaplain and as an assistant parish pastor.  During the height of COVID, she served as Staff Chaplain at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.  

Tina’s faith informs her that God welcomes and calls all people to come together for the greater good, for spiritual growth, and to support one another in community.  She believes all of this can be done in a spirit of joy, and she extends an extravagant welcome to you to join in our Beloved Community at Black Mountain.  



The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where “…they may all be one” (John 17:21).

The Church of Firsts
Since 1957, the United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. Together, we live out our faith in ways that effect change in our communities.  The UCC’s many “firsts” mean that we have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith.  When we read in Galatians: “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus”—a demand is made upon us. And so we were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.

A Church of Extravagant Welcome
Today, we continue to change lives throughout the world. We work alongside more than 200 mission partners. We labor ceaselessly to fight injustice, in the United States and abroad. We instill our vision into our youth and young adults, forging leaders who will imagine new dreams. And we sustain and develop church leaders, pastors, and our local churches to live their faith in exciting new ways.  

We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive.  We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul.

We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and where together, we grow a just and peaceful world.
