Within the borders of the Navajo Nation reservation in the Southwestern U.S. is a unique program known as the Four Corners Native American Ministry of The United Methodist Church. In a culture that can be hostile to Christians and where Navajo believers are often ostracized by their families and neighbors, Navajo people of God encourage and support each other, taking Jesus Christ to fellow Navajos and living powerful Christian lives. This thirty-year-old ministry has often struggled: sometimes with religious authorities, sometimes with other Native American organizations, and frequently with finances. "Four Corners" celebrates how the Holy Spirit continues to work: enabling the ministry to build churches, make disciples, train lay pastors, influence youth, and always stay true to the way of the Lord.About the Author:
