Young Adults Community - A Closer Look


Joe Dalfonso and his wife Rebekah are the leaders of our Young Adult Community.  Joe was born in Buffalo, New York and was raised there in the Catholic church.  During his college years in Buffalo, he came to learn that salvation is “by faith in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9)” and made a commitment to follow Christ.  After college, Joe moved to Phoenix, Arizona to take a job as an industrial engineer with a Fortune 500 company for 12 years.  Joe then served as a teacher in children’s ministry and became a leader in the young adult ministry of his local church.  In 2005 he graduated with an MBA from Arizona State University and met his wife Rebekah, who was born and raised in Phoenix.  Joe and Rebekah served in youth ministry for two years and then became the leaders of the young adult ministry at a megachurch in Phoenix.  In 2016 Joe graduated from Phoenix Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree and began working at Topeka Bible Church as Pastor of Young Adults.  Joe and Rebekah have a daughter, Olivia, and a son, Luke.  Joe can be reached at

This year's goals

In line with our values of Bible and Spiritual Growth, we have set two goals for the Young Adult Community in 2017:

  • To memorize 10 important Bible verses and
  • To read at least one chapter per day in the Bible. 

Outreach and Missions

In line with our value of outreach and missions, we are determined to share the gospel with our Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and ends of the earth:

  • Our local outreach: Topeka Rescue Mission
  • Our national outreach: U.S. Disaster Relief with Samaritan’s Purse
  • Our international outreach: Hungary

Our goal in all outreach is not only to display the love of Christ, but to share verbally the message of the gospel.  For “how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? (Romans 10:14).”
