Winslow, Arizona

Winslow at a Glance

The small town of Winslow may feel like it’s in the middle of nowhere. It has 9400 residents and is located in northern Arizona, just outside of the Navajo Reservation. The town is a Route 66 community, about an hour east of Flagstaff and about 90 minutes west of the New Mexico border by way of I-40. 

Winslow has an interesting mix of demographics, containing roughly 35% Hispanics, 25% American Indians, 25% Whites, and 10% from other or mixed races. Such balanced diversity offers unique yet challenging opportunities for the church, with ample chances for multicultural ministries. About a quarter of the town’s population lives in poverty, and the town also struggles with joblessness, alcohol and drug abuse, and gang violence. 

Despite its issues, Winslow is filled with families who love their small town. Many are loyal to businesses and services, encouraging others to keep buying local. There is a willingness to serve the community that ignites an excitement for those who are a part of this town. Overall, Winslonians have a lot of pride for their town and are saddened by the ongoing violence, gang issues, and racial segregation.

The Navajo Tribe lives on the largest reservation in the United States. The reservation takes up the entire northeast corner of Arizona, and extends into Utah and New Mexico, as well. There are roughly 175,000 people living on tribal lands, with 43% of those people living below the poverty line, and about the same amount unemployed. As on many reservations, the Navajo people also struggle with substance abuse. Even with these struggles, the Navajo are proud of their land, their culture, and their traditions. There are many challenges to ministry on the reservation, from cultural and language barriers to restrictive laws on what can operate on tribal lands.
