Vision 20 / Heart for the House


Heart for the House Stronger families will strengthen our community, our nation and the world. Living Word has a unique anointing for "Building Strong Families." It is what God called our founding pastors to do nearly thirty years ago. Since 1986 God has made us fruitful in this endeavor and now it is time to move on to the next step -- to multiply.


  • Expand our family-based community programs to continue to serve single moms, foster children, families in financial need and those who are homeless.
  • Expand our family-based classes, conferences and curriculum resources to strengthen families here at home.
  • Develop Living Word University into one of the top Bible colleges in the world complete with facilities and dorms, fully equipping the next generation of Christian leaders and pastors. Courses will include strong familiy training.
  • Purchase and beautify a church building here in Ahwatukee. We desire for Living Word Ahwatukee to be beautiful from the street to the sanctuary. We want our community to see that God's church is flourishing and victorious. This will eventually include a full family center and a state-of-the-art facility, Bible college classrooms, youth center and more.

  • Expand our Foster Care Initiative programs for foster children and foster families so we can impact more homes and families
  • Build 30 churches statewide that focus of faith, grace, family and love. Each campus will impact and change the community they are in.
  • Host an annual statewide family conference downtown in a large arena.
  • Infuse our state with family values and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Develop Family Centers in Mesa, Ahwatukee and Scottsdale

  • Expand out international Bible colleges to 30 locations using bi-annual international crusades as the launching platform. When each college is reaching 1000 pastors each year who then impact 1000 people we could be impacting over 30,000,000 in a very short period of time.
  • Expand out ministries in Uganda, Cambodia and Mexico with emphasis on building homes and helping famlilies.
  • Increase our support of orphans in Hyderabad, India, Kampala, Uganda, Brazil and Mexico.
