Pastor John Morgan came to Pinon Hills Community Church in 1995 from Denver, Colorado. In those days, the church was The Exciting Tabernacle Baptist Church. John’s vision was to lead Piñon Hills to become a spiritually-dynamic, regional church based on an attractive and functional ministry campus. PHCC began a new era of growth and almost every year the former campus on Butler Avenue was remodeled and the service schedules changed to support the growth.
In 1997 PHCC acquired the first half of the 60-acre property, where the church is now located on Pinon Hills Boulevard. In 1999 the church voted to re-incorporate as a non-denominational, evangelical church named Piñon Hills Community Church. The second half of the new ministry campus property was acquired in 2007.
PHCC built and entered the first phase of its new ministry campus on Pinon Hills Boulevard in the fall of 2010. It built the Student and Adult Leadership Center in 2013. The church has a long-term master plan for the ministry campus that supports ministries for every stage of life and for every stage of our mission.
Vision 2020 is a strategic plan for PHCC through the year 2020. It organizes every ministry of PHCC around the mission of creating Christian Leaders Who Change the World. That process begins with REACH-ing people who need Christ then it proceeds with GROW-ing people in Christ and then SERVE-ing people through Christ. Our vision is to incite a revolution of Christian leadership.
