Marty's early pursuit of Jesus started at the age of 14 when his heart was gripped by the mercy and faithfulness of God and the gift of His Son. Since that time, he has been dedicated to living a life that is pleasing to his great God and Savior Jesus. Marty has served in ministry since 1994 where he has pastored youth, community outreach, worship and arts as well as the young adult ministry. In June of 2008, Marty and his wife Shelia moved to Surprise, AZ to start Reveal…A Vineyard Community Church. It has been a crazy and wild ride ever since.
Marty has been married to his Texas bride for 23….wait….24 fabulous years (crisis averted). They have three incredible children; Tatum, Josiah and Justis. Family time is loud and obnoxious and always filled with laughter - they wouldn’t have it any other way! In his spare time Marty can be found on the soccer pitch coaching at the local high school, playing softball, banging on the guitar or just sitting in front of the TV (no judgements please…).

Children's Ministry Coordinator
Ariana is Arizona raised and has lived here most of her life. Growing up she was heavily involved in church with her mom who led and coordinated for one of the largest children’s ministry at Shepard of the Valley Lutheran Church- Maria’s Ministry. Ariana got to witness first hand the impact the church community had on young children and young adults. At a young age Ariana made the wholehearted decision to accept Jesus Christ as her savior at one of the church’s youth camps. Over the years as her relationship with Christ grew, her desire to spread the love of Christ with the world grew as well. Ariana has always had a heart for helping others but about 3 years ago Ariana felt that God was leading her in a direction to do more for His kingdom. It was placed in her heart to work with children as that was a big part of her life growing up. 7 years ago (and counting) Ariana made the second biggest decision of her life to marry the love of her life, her wonderful husband Jade. They have two beautiful children. A 12 year old boy named Giovanni and an energetic 6 year old girl Annabelle.
One of Ariana’s life goals is to continue spreading Gods love and grace and make a difference in people’s life one smile, action, or conversation at a time.

Associate Pastor Worship
Daniel has always been surrounded by music and musicians. His father was a worship leader and drummer at a church in small town Douglas, AZ. His mother was involved with women’s ministry and preaching. He recalls late night rehearsals, falling asleep on the church stage and going with his mother into homes to pray for those in need (sometimes forcefully).
At the age of 7, he began playing drums and was a fill-in drummer (yes he admits to praying the drummers would get sick so he could play!) He jumped to guitar around the age of 8, then to bass and started to fall in love with piano around age 10. At that young age, he made the decision to make God his personal savior and serve through music. Daniel got the opportunity to lead worship, and from there knew music and leading was going to be his life.
Years passed, and he was lucky to meet and marry a beautiful and talented woman who played guitar, sang, and led worship with passion and love. Jeanette grew up with the heart to lead and serve as well. She was surrounded by a family of pastors and musicians. She also loves working with kids as her parents were very involved with children’s ministry. A part from working with children in church the family helped kids in need especially the orphaned, through a local kitchen. Jeanette began writing songs of her own and playing guitar at a young age, and even writing her own sermons to share with her church.
Daniel and Jeanette are blessed with 3 Children, Zoe, Danelly and Nathan and are excited to see what God has in store for their lives.
