The ARM Team

2019 New Staff brochure

The needs for “harvesters” are many within this ministry!  We are praying diligently for the Lord to send workers;  people whose hearts faithfully seek to serve Him as HE leads.  Tasks we need others to join in completing include:

Youth ministry, children’s ministry, bus driving, completing homes for the homeless-both with visiting Short Term Ministry Teams and alone, book keeping, computer/desk top publishing and web support.

Our greatest need is for a faith-filled individual with a Commercial Driver’s License to serve on our Church Bus Team. Please pray for the Lord to provide these team members soon.

Dale and Diana Lawrence

In August of 1991, the Lawrence’s moved their family of six to the mission field with (Jacque, 1981; Jon, 1983; Justin, 1989 and Jenna 1990). God has been holding and leading them for over 27 years as missionaries!  When the Lord provided a church building in Globe AZ, just off of the San Carlos Apache Reservation for just $1.00 (see the rest of our history elsewhere on this web site), Arizona Reservation Ministries was born.  Dale and Diana were blessed to be its founders.  Dale continues to serve as ARM’s Executive Director, overseeing the general operations and financial accountability of this ministry.  His heart is burdened for the Pastors of the San Carlos Apache Nation and prays for opportunities to encourage them as God leads. Diana serves as ARM’s Development Director.  She also enjoys leading a weekly Bible Study at the Tribe’s Assisted Living facility and mentoring the younger women on the ARM Team.  Dale and Diana’s income has continued to be faith-based since 1991, revealing many miracles and provision from their Father.

The Jon Lawrence Family

As December of 2012 ended, we were excited to interview and hire a couple that has been quite familiar with this ministry since its beginnings.  Jon and Linda Lawrence first traveled the 1+hour one-way trek from Mesa AZ to volunteer with our Church Bus before their wedding in 2004.  Soon after, they moved to Globe to become ARM team members.  Through the next ten years, a lot transpired both within this ministry, and in this Lawrence family!  Four children have arrived:  Jasmine (2006), Andi (2008), Morgan (2010) and Edward (2011).  Since the spring of 2010, Linda and a few of these children (on a rotating basis) had volunteered on ARM’s Church Bus each Thursday afternoon.  Many of the children and young teens that attend feel like the Lawrence kids are their family, too.  Linda has had a major hand in building relationships and mentoring many.  For several years, Linda served each afternoon through our Church Bus.  She had the honor of baptizing many children since August of 2013 that were part of her ministry. Linda continues to mentor many of these kids through social media but now serves in ARM’s offices as well as leading Prayer Journeys of the Reservation, helping cook for our visiting teams and more.  Jon keeps busy with the maintenance needs of this ministry, and serving as ARM’s Work Group Coordinator. Their four children are oftentimes seen serving in this ministry, too!  This Lawrence family is also deeply dependent upon the Lord to provide partners to support them as they serve Him.

Kevin Pleasant

Kevin’s journey to the ARM team began as a young boy.  God placed within him a dream to go to a “green desert.”  That didn’t sound possible, but he grew up, remembering that dream.  In the summer of 2016, he started looking at ministries in Arizona, and found Arizona Reservation Ministries…focusing on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in a “green desert.”  Kevin began the application process with ARM and joined a scheduled visiting Short Term Ministry Team from his home state of Indiana.  During this visit, both to Kevin and the ARM Team, it became clear that his Man of God was being directed by the Lord to serve here.  We welcomed Kevin Pleasant to the ARM team April 24th, 2017.  His primary responsibilities and giftedness are working with the children and teens from our Church Bus.  His servant-heart compels him to share Christ boldly with these precious ones.  He also helps as needed in many other tasks within this ministry.  Kevin is also completely dependent upon the Lord for his financial provision.

Vincent, Vermaleen and Aurelia Stevens

We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest ARM Team members!  Vincent Stevens began assisting with ARM’s construction projects this past summer (2018). At our recent House Blessing for Veronica, Vincent smiled large and shared that it is a blessing to be able to work at what he’s passionate about.  Not only is Vincent a capable contractor, he is also a faithful pastor at one of the Reservation churches.  His wife, Vermaleen, is also a great blessing to this ministry!  Her words of wisdom are shared from a quiet and faith-filled heart.  Their daughter, Aurelia, adds energy and smiles of her own to bless this ministry!  Aurelia has often been the one to raise her hand and answer questions at an ARM Vacation Bible School, or in the past on our Church Bus, even volunteering to pray, in spite of her young age!  Please join us in welcoming the Stevens family.  We would love for you to partner with them in financial and prayer support!  Simply contact us for more information.
