Thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome to Desert Pines Baptist Association! We are a Southern Baptist entity which consists of 20 Baptist Churches in Northeastern Arizona cooperating together to further the Kingdom of God. The Great Commission is our Passion!!

We also operate Burton Camp, a 30-acre facility that can be rented for family reunions, church retreats, and youth camps.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest at one of our member churches. Our churches are scattered from the high desert plains to the scenic White Mountains and range in size from very large to very small. Our thrust is missions and our hearts are set to reach the lost for Christ.

Please explore our website to find out more about us and our ministries. It is our hope that you will contact us if you need further information. Our office is located at 1016 So. Main St., Snowflake, Arizona, which is the central point between our churches' locations.

Please check back often to see what's new about our association of churches.

  • A Time of Transition

    We hope this finds you well and finds your church thriving in ministry and service for our Lord, Jesus Christ. As we rejoice in the work that the Holy Spirit is doing throughout our region, this letter is to inform you that the Desert Pines Baptist Association is entering a time of transition. We believe that Jesus is going to move mightily during this period and as we move forward we want to keep everyone informed and the lines of communication flowing.

    On February 22, 2019 the Administrative Team received Dr. Lowell Warren's resignation as DOEM effective March 14, 2019. Dr. Warren has faithfully served the DPBA for many years and though we are sad to see him go, we are excited to see how God moves in this new chapter of his (and Peggy's!) life. A farewell reception at Valley View Baptist Church is in the works and we will send out more details as they become available.

    Clearly we will need to have a special-called business meeting of the association to discuss and decide our future regarding the DOEM position and the building (you may recall that Arizona Baptist Children's Services is currently in the process of moving their ministry to Show Low).

    We are hoping to have this meeting in May and will send out more information as the time draws nearer. In the meantime, we intend to send out a short survey to each member church regarding your ideas and vision for the future of the DPBA, as well as your expectations for the DOEM and the association. Please be sure to take a moment and send us your thoughts as they will help us move forward in ministry together.

    Finally, we would like to assure you that during this transitional period we have a team in place to carry out the day-to-day business of the DPBA and to keep up relationships in and among the churches. Candee and Jessica will be in the office keeping things running and handling communication. Candee is in the office Monday - Thursday from 9:00-11:30am each day. She is available by phone (928-536-7200) or email (info@desertpines.org). Jessica is in the office Tuesday mornings from 7:00-10:00am and most Friday mornings. She is available by phone (928-240-3608) or email (jessica.dpba@gmail.com). These ladies will handle the hub of communication and keep us all apprised of any developments.

    Beginning March 1st, Dr. Jim Stansberry (Pastor, Porter Mountain Fellowship) will be stepping into a "leader care" role for our region. LeaderCare Facilitators are a ministry of ABCS and he will be 1 of 7 LeaderCare Facilitators covering Navajo and Apache Counties. Over the next few months, Jim will be handling pastoral care throughout the association until we make a decision regarding the DOEM. He will be directly contacting all pastors over the next few weeks and any pastoral care concerns should be directed to him. Jim can be reached at 928-358-9952 or at jstansberry@abcs.org. For more information on the leader care program please visit http://www.leadercareaz.org/lc.

    We cannot thank you enough for your support, encouragement and patience as we walk through this transitional process together. We look forward to seeing how the Lord is going to move in the association! Please keep the Administrative Team, Dr. Warren and the DPBA staff in prayer over the next few months and pray that God would reveal His will for our association in a great and mighty way when we meet.

    If you have any questions or concerns you may contact me directly at 928-587-0897 or tedpatewinslow@yahoo.com. Thank you again and God bless!
