Meet the Pastor: Trey VanCamp leads Passion Creek Church in a movie theatre

Church at the movies is something fit for the big screen at Passion Creek Church officiated by Pastor Trey VanCamp.

If the name sounds familiar that’s because this is the second part to a Meet the Pastor series in which his father, Billy VanCamp was recently featured for his pastoral leadership with Heart Cry Church ministries, including Cowboy Church in Queen Creek.

While first following in the footsteps of a “heavenly father,” Trey also follows in his earthly father’s footsteps. The elder VanCamp preached in front of his son’s congregation at Harkins Theatres, 20481 E. Rittenhouse Road in Queen Creek for the first time on June 23.

Services, held 10 a.m. Sundays are in an environment where long-time and first-time parishioners can enjoy a “custom Red Box” full of inspiration from the son of a community pastor, according to information at

A fourth-generation pastor, who graduated summa cum laude from California Baptist University with a bachelor’s degree in applied theology, the young pastor went on a recent mission to Thailand.

On Jan. 10, 2016, he started the church, formerly known as Heart Cry Gathering, and renamed it to Passion Creek Church in June 2017 after the announcement of the Heart Cry AZ Network. His goal is to baptize 200 people during the first three years of the church’s inception.

He and the congregation are preparing for “Welcome Week” at ASU Polytechnic campus, a series designed for students in September with topics addressing problems with faith and skepticism including such things as materialism, evil and suffering.

Here’s a brief overview of the pastor prodigy who wants to attract more college students to the Gospel:
