There is only one Southern Baptist church for every 19,000 people in the counties that make up the Phoenix metro-area. Of the 4.3 million people in the area, only 13% are evangelical Christians. In an effort to shine the light of the Gospel to those who live there, J. C. Nava and his wife, Sylvia, have endeavored to plant a church in the city.
A large percentage of the population in Phoenix are Hispanic and Latino. As immigrants from Mexico, J. C. and Sylvia are bilingual and are passionate about reaching all the diverse people they encounter in the city.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program provides resources for missionaries like the Navas so they can plant churches in hard-to-reach cities across North America and the world.
PRAY that God will move in the hearts of the Navas’ neighbors to become part of their new church in Phoenix and that many will come to know Jesus as Savior.
