Chandler, AZ – Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Chandler, Arizona just dedicated their beautiful new Worship Center on Sunday, February 7, 2021. It was a dream three and half years ago that came to fruition after many challenges, but with even more victorious actions during “Our Next Step” Capital Campaign.
First of all, this project was successful as a result of God’s faithfulness. Secondly, it was the faith and courage of Pastors, staff and lay leaders which made the project a tremendous success. Furthermore, the generosity of the Risen Savior congregants was evident in their financial contributions.
Pastor Ron Burcham stated, “We are so grateful to God and to everyone involved in making this wonderful Worship Center/Children & Youth Center a reality. It provides us with great opportunities to reach our community. Now let’s go do it!” Carl Graber, the James D. Klote & Associates Consultant on the project and in attendance at the dedication declared, “This was a “God-sized” project, requiring great leadership from the Senior Pastor, and tremendous effort and expertise from the staff, volunteers, architect, builders and project managers. I am very pleased and blessed to have been immersed with Risen Savior with our personal consultant approach and help raise the needed funds to make this possible.”
