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.


Rev. Jacob and Brandy McBride and children

We would like to introduce our new Pastor and family!

Rev. Jacob McBride comes to us with a qualified background of experience in becoming our Senior Pastor!

His wife, Brandy, also is very qualified in serving in many areas of our church ministries. Pastor Jake’s father was also a Nazarene Pastor.

Their four children in the picture are as follows: Malachi-11 years old; Levi-6 years old; Moriah-8 years old; and their newborn Hannah is 2 months old!

Their first Sunday here in Cottonwood will be February 21, but he will not be bringing the sermon. Rev. Robert Killen, our interim pastor, will bring the morning message from Romans 12.

Rev. Jacob McBride will officially be installed as our lead pastor on Sunday, February 28, during the morning service. Following the installation, he will then give his first official message to his new congregation!

Our service begins at 10:45 am, and right after the morning service, we will have a potluck! Everyone is invited to stay, eat and fellowship with the McBrides! Come and join us and help us welcome our new Pastor and family!
