Grace Driscoll

Women’s Ministry
Grace Driscoll has spent her entire life in ministry as her mom and dad planted The Trinity Church in Seattle, Washington before she was born and she grew up serving in the nursery at her father’s church. Before graduating with her bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the Edward R. Murrow of Communications, Grace married her high school sweetheart Mark, who is her best friend.

Today, Grace is the mother of five wonderful children who all love Jesus. She has co-authored the books Real Marriage and Win Your War with Mark, and together they have appeared on ABC Nightline, Loveline with Dr. Drew, and Fox and Friends, as well as The View with Barbara Walters. She has also joined her husband in answering questions at conferences around the nation and world, most often addressing issues for women related to their identity in Christ and how to be a godly woman, wife, mother, and friend.

Grace helped her husband and family plant Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, named in honor of her parents as her dad has gone home to be with the Lord. At Trinity Church, Grace leads the Real Women life groups. In her free time, Grace likes finding good deals on shoes, spending time with her family, and catching up with friends.

Pastor Eden Fine

Families Pastor
Eden and Brittany were both born in southeast Alaska, but met in New Mexico during their senior year of high school. They married two years later in the summer of 2007 and have five children – Eliora Belle, Eden-James, Haddon Titus, Yvonne Piper, and Calvin Huckleberry. They love to hike, swim, play board games, and try to get away to the ocean as often as possible. Eden and Brittany feel a deep responsibility to teach their kids to love Jesus and good food, especially street tacos.

Eden grew up a pastor’s kid and can’t remember a time in his life when he wasn’t the last person to leave the church. He and his sister served alongside their parents as his dad planted Calvary Chapel in Farmington, NM where they were regulars in both the cleaning crew and kids ministry. Upon graduating high school, he attended a discipleship school in Austria, and, during this time, his heart for ministry grew. Shortly after having their first child, Eden and Brittany began serving in junior high ministry and ultimately served full-time in student ministry for seven years. During this time, Eden attended Re-Train under Pastor Mark’s leadership and received his Certificate in Missional Leadership.

Pastor Darien Bennett

Darien was raised in Santa Clara, CA by a hard-nosed coach/engineer father and a soft-hearted, compassionate mom. From early childhood, he competed in football, baseball, and boxing in high school and college until serious knee injuries derailed his professional aspirations. Pastor Darien became a Christian later in life and went on to receive a Masters of Divinity from Phoenix Seminary. He retired from IBM after 25 years as a manager, systems analyst, auditor, and marketing representative and has been serving the Valley for more than 20 years as a pastor, leading “Men Coaching Men” to build up men and their families.

He is married to the love of his life, Kellie, and has two grown adult children and three beloved grandchildren. He is passionate about studying and teaching God’s Word. He also loves to fly-fish anytime he can. But mostly, he is devoted to helping hurting men just like someone did for him many years ago! This includes a formal discipleship program for men called J3, and the Heart to Heart Christian Chaplaincy program to train men to effectively do ministry on the job and in the community.
