Mason and his family started going to Foothills Christian Church during COVID and were surprised at the direct methods that the pastors on staff had in their teaching. His children came home from the youth group more interested in the Bible and studied it regularly. After attending for some time, Mason and his family made the move and went from consumers of church to participants.
Since then, Brittany Worstell (Mason’s wife) had joined Foothills staff as the Assistant Creative Arts Director and their four children have been volunteering regularly across the church. The Worstell family continues to actively seek God’s plan for them and grow closer to the church community.
