About us

Our roots stretch deep. 1906 was the year when our founder, Howard A. Clark, began his vigorous church planting efforts and sought to develop a Bible training program in Navajo-land under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church.  Many churches, outreach efforts and friendships were developed, resulting in new churches and partnerships in Flagstaff, Tolchaco, Tuba City,  Chinle, Fort Defiance, Pine Springs, Manulito, Crystal, Defiance, Houck and more.  


The new leaders were eager for formal Bible training.  Many began Bible School in Fort Defiance,  and then In 1937 a Bible School and Church was established in Tse Bonito. This became known as the Navajo Bible School and Mission. 

This is our present campus, which was was purchased from a local Trading Post, owned by Mr. Sabin just outside of Window Rock (actually in New Mexico). Howard and his wife developed a staff around them and they started the process of building roads, drilling wells, building dormitories, classrooms and homes. While the major work of the mission was the Bible school, and gospel outreach,  many other ministries have been added over the years.  Including radio broadcasting, youth, jail ministry, hospital and TB visitation, evangelistic teams traveling throughout the reservation, and thee church-planting ministry continued.   Mr. Clark also made several trips to Washington DC to help negotiate the expansion of the Navajo Reservation boundaries.   He also led the Navajo Tribal Council with opening prayer and devotions for many years.  Mr. Clark and was also very instrumental in the formation and operations of the late Mount Eldon Bible Conference in Flagstaff AZ.  

​So much has changed and grown since those early days. And so much has remained the same, namely, a calling from God to invest our lives to see the Native Nations experience the life changing message of Jesus- their Creator. Each of our staff and volunteers are living out our mission in their unique areas: Equipping Native America to exalt Jesus, encounter His goodness and extend His Kingdom, Across Nations.
