About First Assembly of God
In 1981 Pastor David & Joan began to think about starting a church in the communities of Green Valley and Sahuarita. Pastor David was working at Duval Mine at the time. After many months of thinking and praying about it and speaking to the leadership of the Assemblies of God, they rented a room in Social Center West and started holding services on Sunday afternoons. Not long after that they purchased 4 acres in Sahuarita and began the process of establishing a permanent building.
At first, they met in 2 single wide mobile homes that had been donated. They met there until the first building was built. That beautiful structure was located in a residential area and at the end of a dirt road. Needless to say, it wasn't ideal, but God blessed them there and they grew to the point that they realized they needed a larger facility. As they began to look for another, more visible location the Lord opened up the property they are now at on La Canada Dr.
