Rhythm Community Church is a brand-new church launching in the fall of 2019.

In the fall of 2016, Broadway Christian Church in Mesa, AZ caught a vision to see a multiplying movement of church plants beginning in the growing area of Mesa. 

In July, Broadway and Stadia Church Planting network reached out to the Fogle’s to see if they were interested in being one of their new planters. 

After months of praying, God confirmed the call to start a new church in AZ.  Since saying yes, God is continuing to be faithful in giving them vision and passion for this community and the Gospel possibilities that are waiting for them in this adventure!

Why A New Church?
Although there are churches already in Mesa, Arizona we believe that every city needs new and thriving churches. We’re excited to connect and collaborate with other churches in the work that God is already doing in the area.
We are specifically planting in East Mesa where there are no established churches and thousands of young families. That area of Mesa has grown to over 275,000 people from 50,000 in the last 18 years. Demographic studies have shown that in the next 10 years, that number will rise to over 400,000 people.
Our hope is that God will use Rhythm Community to transform the lives of the people in that area. We hope to help set a foundation of faith in this rapidly growing area of Mesa.
51.9 Million

People between the ages of 20-39 are not connected with existing churches.


The expected population in Mesa in the next 10 years.


More than 80% of the churches in the U.S. have plateaued or are declining.

8 Million

Twenty-somethings alive today will no longer attend church by the time they turn 30.

We believe that God is calling us to a new movement in Mesa, Arizona that we’re calling Rhythm Community Church, where we believe that God will do immeasurably more than we can ask for or imagine.

Rhythm Community Church:

We need a new cadence

Because we’re exhausted and hurried in every area of our lives.  This unhealthy pace of life has left us feeling lonely, confused, frustrated, unloved, and insignificant. Together we believe we can become a community of people learning to live in Jesus’ unforced rhythms of grace. Walking and working with Jesus, letting him set the pace.

We hope to partner with families in the community of Mesa through both worship services and through meals shared at a table. We want shared experiences and partnership in everyday life to be the catalyst to helping people experience the love of God.

We are on twin, synergistic journeys – the journey inward and the journey outward.  We’re seeking to be an authentic community of people who are cooperating with the Spirit in the transformation work of becoming more like Jesus for the glory of God and the good of others.
