Josh and Caley Morgan Illuminate Church Lead Pastors

Josh and Caley Morgan

Lead Pastors

Josh and Caley have been married for almost seven years. For the entirety of their marriage, they have been involved in ministry. They have been blessed with open doors and multiple opportunities to work in different roles in the church: from youth leaders, to evangelizing, to serving in the role of pastor all in their home state of Tennessee. In 2017, Josh received a vision and felt compelled to come to Arizona to share the light of Christ. Prior to this vision, neither had been to AZ before. After a few months of prayer, they decided to pack up their lives and move across the country with the desire to reach the West!

Illuminate Church Worship

Griffin Deffner

We love worship at Illuminate Church and we love our worship team! In worship, we seek to give glory to God and praise Him for all He has done and will do. We believe that worship helps us remember how powerful and wonderful God is, and reminds us He is in control. We have a good Father who is worthy of our praise! Come worship with us Sundays at 10:30am!  Our wonderful team is led by Griffin Deffner, a devoted husband to his wife Autumn and a father to their son Jensen. Griffin has been leading worship for 15 years and his desire is for God’s children to know how loved they are and to take hold of God’s destiny for their lives. He is accompanied on stage by Autumn, as well as John and Jeremiah. 
This team plays their heart out every time, you won’t want to miss it!
