Mission History

In 2005, the Christian Vision Academy (CVA) launched the “Journey in the Wilderness” program to reach out to the Jemez and Navajo Native Americans. In the beginning, our program focused on the Korean American second generation youth to commit to spreading the Good News to Native American brothers and sisters. As the program expanded, we began to focus more on serving Navajo children and youth to become future spiritual leaders for the Navajo Nation and the world at large. For Navajo children and youth, CVA provides after school programs, counseling, leadership summer camp and vacation Bible school in cooperation with the Korean American churches. Our adult programs focus on worship, small groups, and senior center programs. In addition, we are planning for a comprehensive school for the arts for Navajo children and youth.
