Freddy and Nancy Hall are both graduates of FGEA’s Midwest Bible Institute and South Texas Bible Institute and Seminary, Houston, Texas.
After pastoring for many years, they followed the call of God to the mission field among the Navajo Indian tribe. In 1996 they moved to Shiprock, New Mexico, a Navajo community, also the largest Native American community in America.
In the last 15 years, they have established, built, and pastored Dineh Christian Center, a lo- cal church that has grown to be the largest Native American congregation in America.
In around 2002, the FGEA Board of Directors authorized Freddy Hall to start the Native American District of FGEA, aka Dineh Ministers Fellowship (DMF). Since then, the District has grown to almost 40 members, with Members in California, Missouri, Oregon, Montana, Arizona, and New Mexico.
We have ministry to Native Americans going on in the historical Sherman Indian Boarding School, Riverside, California. This is huge, in terms of winning the hearts and souls of young Native Americans from the entire USA. Our people in California are literally planting seeds in hundreds of Native youth at SIBS.
Additionally, we have ministry going on throughout the tribes in the states of Washington, Oregon, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota through our DMF members, Rev. Morning Sun Yellow-Pony, and others. We have ministry to the Lakota Sioux tribe through our DMF member Bylie Orr, who lives in Osage Beach, Missouri.
On the Navajo Reservation, we have pastors, tent evangelists and lay leaders who are building new churches and ministries. Just this year we have built a new parsonage, roofed a church, provided a tent to a tent evangelist, and more needs exist for which we do not have funds to help at the moment. We hold quarterly Leadership and Pastors Conferences at locations across the vast 25,000 square mile Navajo Reservation.
A few years ago, we established Dineh Bible Institute, an “Off Campus” school of Victory Bible Institute, Tulsa, OK. We have typically had 20-30 students enrolled in any given semester.
Personally, the Halls reach out to the Native Americans through serving as a member of National Native American Council. This Council influences Native ministries from Alaska, Canada, and the USA.
The Halls live by faith personally and for all their ministries. Your prayers and financial support are very much needed in practical ways.
