Elders

Dr. Sam Mathews

Senior Pastor & Elder

Jon Benzinger

Off-site Elder

Jon moved to Arizona in 2011 after growing up in California. Starting in junior high, he knew he wanted to help people with his life. God saved him at 18 after knowing the truth, but living like God didn’t exist. After that, his desire to help people ultimately led to pastoral ministry and training at Vanguard University, Trinity Law & Graduate School and The Master’s Seminary. After being a high jump coach, custodian, college professor, a young adults pastor and a high school Bible teacher, he accepted the call to lead Redeemer Bible Church in March 2015. He and his wife Katie have four sweet kids, Colin, Ava, Emma, and Jace and a Golden Retriever named Riley. Interesting fact: Jon cannot stand any white condiments.
