Pastor Mark Maddox

My name is Mark Maddox, pastor of Sanctuary United Methodist Church. We meet in Marana / NW Tucson, Arizona. I want to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to our website.

Many people say our church isn't what they expected. If you are expecting a rigid, clicky, judgmental church, then we aren't it! We are "down to earth" and we aren't perfect (especially me!)

It's my goal in every sermon to make the Bible understandable, interesting, and applicable to our lives today without beating anyone over the head with it. I know I'm not perfect and I don't expect anyone else to be perfect.

Please take some time and review our website. If I can be of assistance to you, please call me at: 207-6453. I hope to see you at church sometime.

our vision

Our vision and purpose is to be the kind of church where anyone is welcomed. If you have never stepped in a church or if it has been many years, we want to make sure you feel comfortable from the moment you step in our doors.

We strive to be the church where you feel “at home” from the moment you arrive.

We also believe that the Bible shouldn’t be something used to beat someone over the head with, but instead the stories should be inspiring and fun and exciting. Nothing says that church should be boring! It’s okay to have fun in church as you grow in your faith!

We try our hardest to live up to our mission statement: Be a vibrant and welcoming church that grows in faith, serves Christ, and shares God’s love!

Come check us out sometimes and see why they call us, “The Welcoming Church.”

Get Connected

We have many groups and programs here at Sanctuary. Our hope is that you would like to "get plugged in" and go beyond a casual Sunday morning attendance.

We'd love for you to get to know more of the congregation and give us a chance to get to know you, form new relationships, and improve your relationship with God at the same time!

Here are some great ways to get "plugged in"!
