Missions are a vital part of who and what PVCC is. Some of our missions are based as close as Prescott Valley and some are international. We take our commission from God seriously when He tells us to “go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them into the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything He has commanded.” (Matthew 28:19)
Each month we feature a mission in our bulletins, through service announcements, special videos, youth and children’s prayer calendars / instruction, the prayer partner ministry and more. We are pleased to include this information on our Website.
American Indian Christian Mission (AICM)

AICM is a boarding school for children mostly from the White Mountain Apache Tribe in Show Low, AZ. Children board from Sunday-Friday evening. During the week they attend classes at the mission (grades K-8th). Students for 9-12th grades stay and attend the local high school. In addition to the boarding and school, AICM is active on the White Mountain Apache Reservation with the Blue Bus Ministry. This bus brings games, toys and mission teams to share the love of Jesus with the children there. Our Teen LIFE group has made many trips to AICM to participate with the Blue Bus ministry over the past 20 years.
Border Christian Ministries Contact: Louise Drumheller
PVCC has supported Border Christian Ministries since the early 1990’s. Louise served as a full-time missionary with her husband delivering Bibles and supplies for the church into Mexico. When they retired, they partnered with their friends and children who continued the work. After losing her husband, Louise was still making regular trips to Mexico to take Bibles and blankets and other supplies needed for the work well into her late 80’s. Louise is 94 years old now and continues to support the mission through prayer and making contacts from her home.

In February 2019, the leadership added this mission for regular support. This organization works with providing sponsorship for children to who live in very harsh conditions. Schools have been built and maintained with education provided for these children to improve their opportunities. From this originating works, churches have been built, wells dug to support communities, a giving program to provide animals, as well as disaster relief and medical care provided. Our mission money helps support church growth/development or immediate needs.
Christian Relief Fund Sponsorship
Learn more at: https://christianrelieffund.org/sponsor/
As part of our VBS mission, our youth/children decided to take responsibility for a child’s sponsorship. In March they voted on a boy or girl and the age of the child we should help. After much prayer, we found Francis Solis who was 6 years old and just had her 7th birthday in November and began our sponsorship in April 2019.
Our goal is to continue her sponsorship till she reaches age 18 (and ages out of the program), to pray for her each week, and to encourage her with notes and cards. We have also sought out ways to help her and her family with supplies they need such as extra food, books or clothing.

There are seven preachers working with seven churches in Haiti at this time. Despite the current political instability, remaining hurricane damages and meager conditions the churches continue to thrive. This ministry helps to provide working salaries for the preachers, building supplies and volunteers to assist with the work, Bible and more.
Mercy Hill Christian Church

In March 2019, the leaders decided to help with the monthly support of Mercy Hill Christian Church in Surrey, BC, Canada. One of only 70 Christian Churches in Canada, Mercy Hill is working hard to reach out to the people there with the love of Christ. By supporting this work and praying for them, we encourage our sister church and their leadership and facilitate bringing the gospel message back to Canada where Christianity rapidly declining and Islam is on the increase.
