Welcome

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.

  • COVID-19 Response

    Dear Fellow Laborers in Christ,

    I imagine you find yourself, as I do, in uncharted waters! Based on President Trump's Rose Garden Press Conference yesterday, we are in for a longer shutdown, than we had originally anticipated. I don't know about you, but this has thrown a real wrench in FSBC Overgaard's Easter plans and continuing ministries.

    I woke up this morning with a real burden and I reached out to my leadership with these questions, so I will pose them to you as well.

    1. Are we meeting our church family's spiritual needs?
    2. Are we meeting our church family's physical needs?
    3. Are we available to the community and engaging them at this time?
    4. Are we over-communicating? (adding to the noise)
    5. Are we under-communicating? (adding to the uncertainty)

    I also communicated with leadership our giving situation since our last public gathering on March 15th, which is in fact reduced.

    I know that all of you are wrestling with many of the same things that I am wrestling with. Some of your people think you are a coward/unfaithful for not gathering, others think you are reckless/unloving for even considering reconvening services, but I want to encourage you with a couple of real solid truths:

    Despite interruptions to our normal ministry schedule, we still have the primary, foundational, exclusively essential Gospel of Jesus Christ. His perfect, sinless, righteous life, His righteousness imputed to us; His redeeming, atoning, wrath exhausting death on the cross; God's satisfaction displayed on the third day through Christ's glorious resurrection, and the Holy Spirit's gift of faith and the power of repentance.

    No matter what the outcome is, God is sovereign and is still on His throne!

    Please let us know at the DPBA how your church is doing? And how you are doing? If we can assist you in any way, please give us an opportunity to serve you.

    Remain vigilant, and pray for God's mercy in this situation. I know most pastors are men of action but do not be too hasty in exposing yourself or your congregation to unnecessary risk. One of my friends on the Navajo Reservation told me this morning that she was exposed to COVID-19 by her pastor who is COVID-19 positive. So far she is asymptomatic, but he attend the Nazarene meeting in Chilchenbeto, AZ. As predicted COVID-19 cases are doubling every other day which will put the country at 1 million cases by next Monday, if the curve does not start flattening out.

    The church is made to gather, but right now is not the time to do so, out of a love for our brothers and sisters in Christ, and a love for our vulnerable neighbors. The church is not being asked to do anything that everyone else is being asked to do. This is not a case of religious discrimination at this time.

    God bless you all. Please feel free to contact me via email.

  • A Call to Prayer

    Dr. David Johnson, executive director of the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention, shares a word of encouragement and a call to prayer.

    Dr. Johnson wrote:

    This past Sunday was a great day! I was so proud of how our churches rose to the occasion of worshiping online through livestreaming, video, and social media. It was amazing to see how our pastors and churches helped each other and worked together to make it happen! Round one is done. But the battle is far from over. We are just beginning to see the effects of what this virus might do unless it is stopped. That is why I am writing this message.

    God is calling us to pray! I see it all over social media and in our churches. Associations are having online prayer meetings. Churches are initiating prayer efforts. People are praying across the miles and across the country. I encourage you to be a part of this prayer movement where ever you live and in whatever way you can. Pray for the spread of the Coronavirus to be abated. Pray for protection and healing. Pray that God will provide a cure. And pray that the church will rise to the occasion to share the love of Jesus through it all!

    I would like to make one request for us to pray together: Pray for Easter! Easter Sunday is coming on April 12. Pray that it will be a great day of celebrating the resurrection and glorifying the Lord! Pray that it will be a day of victory and rejoicing! Pray that it will be a time for the gospel to be shared and for people to come to know Jesus! Since the beginning of the Christian movement, Easter has been the central focus of the church. It all began with the resurrection of Jesus and our very faith depends on His resurrection. Let's pray that this will be the best Easter Sunday ever!

    I want to point you to some great resources for prayer during these days. One is the 7:14 Podcast by Jackie Allen and Chris Stull and another is the Daily Prayer in the 19th Hour to end COVID-19 which is being launched by Mike Lee and the Valley Life Network. One idea would be to pray at 7:14 a.m. and 7:14 p.m. each day until this crisis is over! There is much to pray about — a cure for the virus, those who have contracted the Coronavirus, our leaders, our healthcare workers, our churches, our pastors, the economic and financial impact of the virus, and the impact on our families. Most of all, let's pray that God will be glorified in and through it all, especially on Easter Sunday!
