James 2:18 (NASB) 
But someone may well say, "You have faith and I have works; 

show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

Year Around Service Opportunities

  • Mike & Murf gaston

    Mike and Murf Gaston served with Converge International Ministries for 15 years as church planters in Cameroon and France, allowing them to bring valuable first-hand experience to their role on the Converge Member Care Team, providing pastoral care and encouragement to Converge workers around the world. They are the primary caregivers for the Converge North America Team. But they also provide their home in beautiful Northern Arizona as a place of ministry. Murf's hospitality gifts are put to good use as they welcome their colleagues on home assignment for a few days of refreshment, and whatever pastoral care that their guests might require. Both of the Gastons have come to realize the value of Sabbath rest, and are eager to encourage their Converge colleagues to explore that gift and make it a regular part of their lives. Mike and Murf need no salary from Converge, so all donations to their ministry go directly to cover the costs of their travel and hospitality ministry as they care for missionaries. The goal of their Converge ministry is reflected in Philemon, verse 7, where Paul says to his friend, "The hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you."

    Here is some further information provided by Mike for his and Murf's ministry focus in this next season:


    A link to our Converge donation page: https://converge.org/missionary/mike-murf-gaston We will be using donations to cover their hospitality costs for missionaries, our medical insurance premiums, a new laptop computer, and travel costs to missionary debrief conferences and international travel for the preaching training ministry that we hope to start in 2021.

  • A Safe place


    Our Plan for a Homeless Ministry in Prescott Valley

    “Those who help the poor succeed will get many blessings.” 

    Psalm 41:1 ERV

    Luis Chavez's Story, "The Hand of God in Our Community" 2021.02.22 click here.

    Ministry update as of 2020.11.24 click here.

    This Christian Ministry serves all individuals in the Prescott Valley area who find themselves without housing and need help to once again become self-sustaining. Our mission is to provide for their basic needs and their spiritual ones, and to help them achieve independence. The vision God has given us is to partner with area churches and organizations to serve this population in a non-judgmental way, based on Christian love. 

    We have incorporated as a 501-C 3 nonprofit organization. An anonymous donor has supplied the needed funding to get our homeless shelter established and operating at a minimum level. This effort is based on volunteers giving their time and talents in the areas listed below, supplemented by one or two paid staff members once we locate an acceptable building to lease.

    Components of this ministry are as follows:

    • A safe place where the needy can go to receive referrals to area agencies, counseling, prayer, and hope.*
    • Day time hours for showers, help with filling out job applications and government assistance forms, counseling, a place to hang out, and prayer.*
    • A small pantry of nonperishable foods and personal hygiene supplies for them to get through the day.*
    • Clothing items available at the shelter and/or vouchers for Stepping Stones to supply needed items for daily use and job interviews.*
    • Providing an address for individuals so they can better receive help, gain employment, and the ability to communicate with friends and family.*
    • Overnight shelter when the weather makes it difficult to live in their cars, tents, or on the streets which will be provided to men, women, and families as facilities and staffing allows.*
    • Meals provided by area churches, organizations, and individuals when our overnight shelter is open.*
    • Volunteer transportation for individuals as needed; including possible payment of transit costs to return clients to an area where they have family or friends to help them.*
    • Overnight parking for homeless who do not want to be in a shelter.*
    • Future provision of pet accommodation, probably off site.*

    Presently our Board members and volunteers stock our cars with sleeping bags, tents, blankets, coats, socks, hats, gloves, food items, toiletries, Bibles, jobs listings, and other survival items. We also give them vouchers for the Laundromat in Prescott Valley’s Safeway plaza. We drive around the parks and business areas where needy people congregate and offer our survival items, prayers, a Bible, and how to contact us if they have additional needs. We let them use our P.O. Box as an address to help with employment, and our email address for further communication.

    This summary is just a starting place and God continues to provide direction for the services to be provided, and the financial and volunteer support to make this ministry A Safe Place, a new beginning for those individuals served. Please join us in prayer and other support as you feel led.

  • House of hope 316

    The House of Hope 316 opened in Prescott Valley in April of 2019. It is a facility that provides housing and food to elderly men and women who might be homeless otherwise. But it provides more than a room and a meal. It is a serene, peaceful home where the elderly residents care about each other and live together as a family. It is a place where they hear about Jesus and they know that they are loved and that their lives have value and purpose.

    Mission Statement

    The House of Hope 316 is a tangible example of God’s love to the elderly, providing for their daily needs and giving them a home and a family, while telling them with our words and our actions that they are loved by us and by God – our loving Heavenly Father.

  • Good News 2 Go

    The great commission with a Transmission

    A ministry of evangelism and encouragement using eye-catching signs on a mobile billboard van.  In business they call it branding. We want to brand the love of Jesus into the hearts of people.

    Click here to see pictures of our Good News 2 Go vans.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of Good News 2 go is to bring the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the community. Our mobile billboard vans travel around town and park in strategic locations displaying bold and colorful signs with messages of peace, hope and encouragement. These messages are designed to demonstrate the love of God to the broken hearted, motivate the lost to seek salvation in Jesus, infuse faith and truth to those who have wandered and inspire Christian believers.  We hope to get people talking and give opportunities for Christians to share their faith.

    Psalm 96:3 (NLT2)
    Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does.

    1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NKJV)
    Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

    Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT2)
    Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. 

    Current Needs

    • A place to store and work on the trucks
    • Help with creating the signs/graphics
    • Maintaining the trucks (mechanical)
    • We deeply appreciate your prayers for this ministry.

    Mission Statement

    We are called in Christ to a divine work prepared for us to do before the beginning of time. Through volunteer work at Yavapai County Juvenile Detention Center we bring the Lord’s truth to troubled youth in need of a new identity in Christ.

    Current Needs

    • Much prayer
    • Mature Christian men to come along side young men as they come to our ministry.

    Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)

    For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
