DREAM CITY CHURCH (Formerly Phoenix First Assembly) is a church nestled within the Shadow Mountain Preserve, shining God’s light and impacting a city. From its early beginnings as a tent meeting to its 72-acre Phoenix campus, 20-acre Scottsdale campus, and its newest campus in Glendale, Dream City Church progressively lives out its mission to lead people into a fully-devoted relationship with Jesus Christ by loving people, cultivating community, and inspiring hope.
The waves of the Pentecostal Movement of the early Twentieth Century were still rippling when the church held its first service in 1923. In the first quarter of the century, America saw unprecedented economic prosperity and freedom, marked by a renewed awareness of ideals and social changes that still define our culture today. The invention and wide-spread use of automobiles, telephones, and motion pictures connected people and ideas as never before, women won the right to vote, and the world was recovering from the effects of the First World War. In the midst of this changing world, the Church experienced rapid growth.
