Individual Staff Support

As the Team of ARM faithfully serves Christ in so many ways on the San Carlos Apache Reservation, they also live by faith.  As you read through the short biographies below, please pray for each one that the Lord has called to this ministry.  As you feel led, donations are deeply appreciated!  Simply send a note with your donation to “ARM” with the designated recipient you feel called to help support.  That support is truly a blessing to us all, as we are a “family” and pray often for the needs of each other.

Dale & Diana Lawrence
In August of 1991, the Lawrence’s moved their family of six to the mission field.  (Jacque, 1981; Jon, 1983; Justin, 1989 and Jenna 1990) God has been holding and leading them for over 23 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, 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 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 chlidren are oftentimes seen serving in this ministry, too!  Jon and Linda receive a bit of their support from ARM’s General Fund as the number of those partnering with them is minimal.  Currently, the six of them reside in a one-bedroom home!  We’re all praying for others to join in supporting them, so that they can move into a home that can better accommodate them.

Kevin Pleasant’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.
