Please help us welcome the Clindaniels for our February Missions service this Sunday!
US Missionaries Steven and Beverly Clindaniel
The Clindaniel’s served from 2002-2007 as Student Ministry Directors who directly trained and then took students out into the reservations for ministries as well as revivals. Every student regardless of their degree were required to spend at least one weekend in ministry.
Each summer the Clindaniel’s would travel 8-10 weeks with a team of students holding summer campmeetings and revivals throughout the United States including Alaska.
20007-2011 the Clindaniel’s moved to the Dallas Indian Revival Center to establish SEEDS School of the Bible for the purpose of training Native Americans for the ministry to reach their own people. In four years the school grew to over 75 students.
Native American students that the Clindaniel’s are continuing to win souls for Christ as they have accepted ministry positions as far away as Anchorage Alaska. Three students went on to graduate school preparing themselves in counseling to minister to the hurting and bond members of their tribes.
August 2011 the Clindaniel’s returned to the American Indian College in Phoenix as the Dean of Students (Steve) and the Resident Director (Bev). Continuing the process of ministry training and now adding leadership development and practical life applications to the agenda will be the goal.
By training individuals to return to their own people the overall effectiveness of winning souls and impacting the kingdom of Christ is multiplied. Now many Native Americans are hearing the good news that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life.
Clindaniel’s served as the missionary pastor at Newcomb Navajo AG in Newcomb, N.M. 2014-15. Following the transformation from Missionary led ministry Michele Redhouse Navajo and graduate of AIC assumed the role of pastor.
Clindaniel’s accepted national appointment as Native American Children Evangelist. Basing out of Texas they traveled throughout USA to Native American churches training local congregations spending two weeks in ministry to children hosting a children’s crusade followed by a week of family seminars. The purpose is to come along side Native ministries equipping them to minister to children and the families in their communities.
Currently the Clindaniel’s serve as the New Mexico Native American Liaison assisting the 15 Native churches throughout New Mexico providing leadership development, pulpit supply, children and youth ministries, mission teams, and outreach opportunities.
Any interested churches may contact them to arrange a mission outreach to the Navajo, Jicarilla Apache, and Mescalero Apache or Acoma Pueblo reservation providing their congregation an opportunity to experience missions firsthand.
