Arizona is home of a major portion of the largest Indian Reservation in North America, the Navajo Nation with over 25,000 square miles. Arizona is also home of 20 other Indian Nations. A total of over 425,000 Native American people live in Arizona -- 6% of the State's population, occupying 25% of its land area.
The purpose of Arizona Native American Ministries is to hasten the return of Jesus by coordinating Seventh-day Adventist work for Native Americans across the State of Arizona.
We work closely with Pacific Union Conference Native Ministries and North American Division Native Ministries, and also with Native outreach ministries in adjoining states, especially Utah and New Mexico.
The Mission of Diné Adventist Radio is to empower Diné to experience the best possible quality of life in their health, in their families and in their faith. DAR currently broadcasts a locally-produced bilingual thirty-minute program which reaches across the entire Navajo Nation each Sunday morning. The Vision of DAR is to blanket the Navajo Nation with a 24/7 FM radio signal bringing hope, healing and hózhǫ́ [harmony] to everyone within its reach.
