Danny & Jamie Schulz

Danny and Jamie have been serving in full time ministry together for the past decade in a wide variety of roles, including youth pastors and intern directors. The dream to plant a church was in their hearts for over a decade before they were sent out by their previous church to relocate to Spokane and launch Sun City Church in January, 2015. Since then, it's been a wild ride of building teams and growing the church into a flourishing community in the heart of Spokane Valley. 

One of their biggest passions is introducing people to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. It's reflected in the way they minister and how intentional they are about helping people who haven't grown up in church understand what it looks like to follow Jesus.

Leadership development is a large focus for them and they're often side by side as they strategize, lead, and minister.

Together, they believe in being authentic, having fun, and whole-heartedly saying yes to wherever God leads. Their children, David, Hudson, and Annie, are also involved in serving on worship, media, and Kids teams. As a family, ministry isn't something they do, but who they are, and being able to serve in leadership alongside each other is a great honor and source of joy for them.

The Bible – God’s Book

The Scriptures have been written by men under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is relevant to all people, everywhere. Being inspired by God, the Bible is without error and pertinent to everyday life as a believer.  (1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16)

The Trinity – God; Three in One

God has revealed Himself as one God existing in the three person: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each of these roles is unique from the others but, at the same time, they cannot be separated from each other.  (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

Man – Created in the Image of God

God designed man and woman in His own image. When the first man and woman disobeyed God, they introduced sin resulting in the fall of mankind from the relationship with God and the status of authority that God intended for them and their descendants to walk in.  (Romans 5:12,18, Romans 3:10,23; 6:23; 14:23; James 4:17; 1 John 5:17)

The Father – God is Good

God reveals Himself throughout Scripture as a faithful, loving father. Despite man’s continual disobedience and rebellion towards God, He continually acts graciously towards us. His story unfolding throughout eternity is that of unconditional love.  (Luke 15:20-24, James 1:16-18, John 14:1-6, Ephesians 2:17-19, Matthew 6:6-13)

Jesus Christ – God Became Man

Jesus was born of a virgin, Mary, and lived on earth as fully man and fully God. By living a perfect life, He has met the requirements of God for righteousness. Through the sacrifice of His life upon a roman cross, He has enabled forgiveness of sins. He rose from the dead after 3 days and, in doing so, offers us the ability to follow Him in living victorious over sin and death.  (Acts 1:20; Romans 4:25; I Corinthians 15:1-8, Matthew 24; Mark 16:19; John 14:2-3; Acts 1:9-11; Philippians 2:5-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 9:28)


The Holy Spirit – God is Present

When Jesus ascended to Heaven after being resurrected from the dead, He sent the Holy Spirit to empower believers to live a victorious life over sin. The Holy Spirit baptizes the believer internally and gives spiritual gifts that strengthen and encourage the church.  (Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:8-12)

Salvation – God’s Only Plan

Salvation is a free gift which cannot be earned but received only by faith and the repentance of sins. We are restored to relationship with God and the status of authority we were designed for by God’s grace.  (Romans 5:11; Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22)

Baptism – A New Identity

God instructs believers to be identified with Christ through water baptism. It is a symbolic and spiritual act signifying death to sin and being resurrected with a new identity in Christ.  (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38,39; 19:1-6)

Eternity – Forever and Ever

Man was created to exist forever. Salvation gives us access to eternity in Heaven with God. While the rejection of God and His gift of salvation result in an eternity separated from Him.  (John 3:16; 5:24, Mark 9:43-48; II Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15)

The Church – God’s Community

The church is God’s plan for believers to learn and grow in relationship with Him. Unified through faith and the desire to glorify God, the church is God’s community of people who are committed to becoming more like Him.  (Acts 2; I Corinthians 11; Hebrews 10:25)
