Papua New Guinea: Gene Mattox

Mattox Gene 2019I am a Christian seeking to follow God’s will. That being said, I center all of my life around how it affects my walk with Jesus. In the past few years, I have developed skills in teaching and preaching. My goal in life is to bring people closer to Jesus Christ. It is not that I am fanatical, but that I have brought my life in line with the work of Christ in my life. In short, I am a person who wants my life to count for Christ in every aspect.

American Indian Field: Doug & Becky Darfus

Doug and Becky Darfus 600x400We went on missions trips to Africa, Honduras, and the American Indian Field, and then served as volunteers at the Southwest Indian Ministries Center for a monthThrough that experience, we both knew we were being called to missions.

Native children come from all over Arizona to attend one of Southwest Indian Ministries Center’s camps. While at the camps, they receive all the love and support that Jesus showed to children. It is our hope to travel throughout Arizona to visit, encourage, and help disciple as many of the campers and their families as possible, so that when the children return to the next camp, they will have grown in their faith.

American Indian Field: Steve & Debbie Cartwright

Steve Debbie Cartwright 2018Our main ministries focus in the areas of encouragement and training Native Christians.

We pastor the Siloam Church, on the Gila River Indian Reservation south of Phoenix, AZ. There we are also involved in youth and children's ministries as well as adult discipleship. Besides the Victory Guitar Outreach program, which has reached many in our area with the message of Christ as well as guitar learning, we are currently heavily involved with a new ministry called SOAR - Servant Overcomer Addiction Recovery. Steve leads the SOAR meeting every Friday evening, which is reaching people even beyond the Siloam church who deal with issues holding them back from being all God has called them to be.

We also are facility directors at Southwest Indian Ministries Center (our youth camp and retreat facility in Peoria, Arizona) and Debbie serves as the Field Treasurer.
