Pastors Galen and Kay Woodward moved to Albuquerque in 1981 to become Youth Pastors at what was then First Family Church. After 12 years of leading in that capacity, they were named the new Senior Pastors, bringing with them a fresh vision that would serve not only the church, but the surrounding communities and the world for the next 28 years. Now, after more than four decades in ministry, Pastors Galen and Kay will be transitioning their role as Senior Pastors, of what is now Citizen Church, to their oldest son Dustin and his wife, Mandy. Pastor Dustin has served on staff and worked alongside his parents for the last 14 years. He and Mandy have both played an integral part in the vision and life of Citizen Church. As Pastor Dustin assumes the role as Senior Pastor in January of 2020, Pastor Galen will take on the new role as a Pastoral Oversight of the church. We are so excited for what the future holds. We believe that the best is yet to come!


Our Vision

We are a Christ-centered, Spirit-led, Kingdom-building movement, committed to the physical and spiritual renewal of cities and nations, and restoring hope and purpose to every person.

“You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”

Ephesians 2:19-20
