A Community of Young Adults

What is 7TEN?

7TEN is a Tuesday night gathering of young adults (18-30ish) that come together to worship, explore the Word of God, and connect. We desire that this would be a catalytic moment that creates movement towards Gospel community and mission.

Every month we will be exploring God’s Word together as it speaks to topics relevant to our generation. Join us on the 1st three Tuesdays of each month at 7:10PM in the Commons at Redemption Gilbert.

Through Jesus, God has set us right with Him and has given us the ministry of setting things right. In light of who He is and all He has done for us, we respond to that call. As such, we trust that God will use us to reach our generation with the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ in the world around us.

Redemption Communities

Redemption Communities (RCs) are small groups where discipleship, growth, and life happen within 7TEN. They are a great way to build strong relationships while exploring God’s word and applying it to your everyday life. Get involved in a community, be challenged, and be on mission in this world!

Paul Artino

Pastor of 7TEN
About Paul Artino

I’m married to Lauren and have two daughters and one son: Evangeline Love, Vera Grace, and Silas Jacob. They are my most favorite humans of all time.

After what can graciously be described as a “reckless” college career, God saved me while working as a waterski instructor/boat driver guy at a Summer Camp in Florida.  My journey has included working in construction, marketing and advertising, oyster shucking (seriously), as a children’s pastor and as a pastor to college students and young adults.

I currently serve as Executive Pastor at Redemption Gilbert, where I provide oversight and vision to our Guest Services teams, our Community and Global Initiatives, and 7ten, our gathering of college students and young adults.

When I’m not in my office laughing with Jed, you can find me at home being sneak-attacked by my kids, posting up my interns on the basketball court, or wandering around in the out-of-doors.

7TEN Worship Leader
About Jed Maughan

I was born in a pastor’s home and have been surrounded by solid theology and gospel teaching my entire life. Thankfully God did not allow me to think that somehow that made me His child. At a younger age God let me start feeling the weight of my sin so that I knew that I needed a savior and right around my freshman year of High School is where I’d say my walk with Him really began. I met my beautiful wife Whitney in September of 2010, we were married 5 years later and she is my best friend in the whole world. The closest people to me are my family. My dad and mom, Tim and Susanne, and my 3 brothers, Ben, Jesse, Eli.

Connor McKenzie

7TEN Intern
About Connor McKenzie

I am the youngest member of a family of four. I graduated from Mountain Pointe High School in 2014, and am currently enrolled as a student at Grand Canyon University. Moreover, I am in the process of earning a bachelors degree in Christian Studies with an emphasis in Biblical Studies.

God in His loving sovereignty gave me faith in Jesus Christ during a Redemption summer camp going into my seventh grade year. Sadly, the next five years of my life were filled with wild debauchery and anxiety. Unfortunately, during this time period I became the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes club at my high school, and hid the lifestyle I had been leading from many.

In my first week of college God in His mercy restored the joy of my salvation, and placed me in a Christocentric community.  Ever since, God has graciously exploded His joy into my life, and removed significant sin from it.

I currently serve as a 7TEN intern for Redemption Gilbert where I get to help college students and young adults get connected to RC groups within the ministry. Additionally, I assist in the setting up for 7TEN, and I work with the guest services team on Sundays. I also sometimes get to do food runs for my coworkers.

Outside of the workplace you will probably find me doing homework in Peets Coffee, playing sand volleyball, or randomly nailing some high-arching 3 pointers on the basketball court with Paul, Jed, and Cory.

7TEN Intern
About Cory Kasperson

I have lived in Arizona since I was about 8 years old. Prior to that, I lived in California, Montana, and Washington. I have one brother named Casey who is my best friend and I absolutely love my family to death.

Currently, I am a student at Grand Canyon University. I am a sophomore and am getting my degree in Christian Studies with an emphasis in Biblical Studies. If all goes as planned I will be graduating in the spring of 2018. I work on campus at the GCU mail center throughout the week and on Tuesdays I intern for Paul Artino for the 7TEN ministry at Redemption Gilbert.

I would say that God saved me when I was in my early elementary years of school. I do not necessarily remember an exact conversion moment, but throughout the years Jesus has given me more and more affections for Him. Through the dark times and the good times Christ has always been the one faithful to me despite my weaknesses.

When I am not studying for school or working I love to stay active and hang out with my friends and family. Going hiking or playing sports are things that I am always up for. When it’s time to relax, I enjoy watching the Seattle Seahawks play football, while lounging around with my dogs Baxter and Bailey.
