Our mission is to serve God and our community while rejoicing in Spirit filled services and enjoying Christian Fellowship.

We are a loving and growing congregation.  Located in Cottonwood, Arizona, looking out on the Verde Valley and the red rock mountains of Sedona.

We Connect with God daily and corporately on Sunday, We Grow in his grace and knowledge through small groups throughout the week, and we Serve others to give the glory to God.

Our Vision is to reach the lost in the Verde Valley and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Verde Valley was organized in 1974 and is the only Nazarene Church in Cottonwood.


Albert & Kathy Hughes

Kathy and Albert Hughes are pleased to become the new pastors at the Verde Valley Church of the Nazarene.  We look forward to becoming part of the community.

Albert grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  After graduating from Berea College in Kentucky attended Lexington Theological Seminary.  Albert served as a pastor in Kentucky for over 20 years.   In 2013 he moved to Tucson,  Arizona.  Albert has worked as a hospice chaplain.  He has also served as a pastor of spiritual formation at Mt View Church of the Nazarene.   This move back to full time church ministry is exciting.

Kathy is an Arizona native.  She was born in Phoenix and has lived in numerous parts of the state including Camp Verde, Cornville, McGuireville, and Cottonwood.  She graduated nursing school from Yavapai Community College.   As she returns to Cottonwood, she will be working in home health.

Albert and Kathy are excited about coming to the area to make new friends and be a part of ministry in the Verde Valley.
