USA Southwest

The Tsaile Church is located in the heart of Navajoland in northeast Arizona. The church has an effective ministry to the Dine’ (Navajo) College campus. Everett & Mary Teller are the first Native American pastors of the church.

Hooghan Nizhoni Church is located on the Navajo Reservation between Window Rock, AZ and Gallup, NM. John & Toni Thumma began their pastoral ministry there in August 2006 and John is currently the Senior Pastor. In July 2014, Devin and Tabitha Dillinger joined the ministry team at Hooghan Nizhoni as Special Assignment Missionaries, focused on youth ministry. Since the beginning of 2016, Devin is the Associate Pastor at both Hooghan Nizhoni and Gamerco Church of God.

The Gamerco Church of God is on the north side of Gallup, NM. This cross-cultural mission includes Hispanics, African-Americans, Navajo, and Caucasians and is rapidly moving toward self-support. John Thumma also serves as the Senior Pastor of this congregation.

In 2016, the three churches reported 151 total attendance, 2 baptisms, and 16 professions of faith. In addition, there are 7 work and ministry teams that will visit the Southwest churches this summer.
