Ministry Highlights and Prayer Focus

Jack Drake founded Navajo Missions in 1953 to provide hope and restoration to families in Navajoland. The name “Navajo Missions” remained in place for over 50 years. In 2006, our Board of Directors voted to legally change the name to “Navajo Ministries,” a better description of who we were. This past year, we legally changed our name to “Four Corners Home for Children.” We believe this name better reflects who we are and what we do. Four Corners Home for Children has always been a program of Navajo Missions/Ministries but is now the ministry’s overall name.

We have not changed who we are – we remain a Christ-centered ministry, operating according to Biblical standards. We have not changed what we do – we operate a Christian home for children, an on-site school, broadcast Christian music through Vertical Radio, and minister to the Navajo people through our Navajo Nation Outreach.
