Who We Are

We’re creating something which takes a wide array of skills and experience. It’s much bigger than a few people. We’re a growing team with generations of experience in a range of necessary skills with even more working behind the scenes. We believe God has given us skills and minds to use for His purposes. We love to help people connect with God and each other, so they can positively impact the world around them. Our team is passionate to purchase the historic Bible college property in Miracle Valley, Arizona to create an Oasis Center which can serve churches, groups, businesses, families and individuals.

Some of us are related to A. A. Allen who founded the town of Miracle Valley and grew his world renowned Christian ministry in the 1950s-60s at the heart of it. We care about this community deeply and this property we’re seeking to protect, purchase and preserve means more to us than possibly anyone. This property is the inheritance of Christians across the world. It is historically significant and we have a solid solution for how to preserve it and make it useful for God’s mandate today! We’re generously giving towards the vision and hope you’ll join us!

Board of Directors

President & Secretary

She has decades of experience honing a wide array of skills including extensive public speaking, large-scale fundraising, event planning, online marketing, product development and leading teams of employees and volunteers to achieve big goals. Rebekah has been a prolific writer and historian for over 20 years with a focus on Christian history and is a leading expert on A. A. Allen and Miracle Valley. She thrives on helping people live fully in their calling and is deeply committed to working and leading with authenticity and integrity. 

Vice-President

Daniel Jones (Rebekah’s husband), is a digital marketing specialist who has led departments at global digital agencies, leading teams and working with international brands, non-profits and businesses.

Treasurer

Steve Allen (A. A. Allen’s oldest grandson) is a 3rd generation Christian minister who spent his childhood in Miracle Valley, Arizona and learned construction from his dad James, who was responsible for building much of Miracle Valley in the 1950s- 60s when the town was established. He has decades of experience in full-time large-scale pastoral ministry and in constructing multi-million dollar building complexes for churches and organizations, leading hundreds of volunteers and employees while overseeing construction which comes in under-budget every time. (Examples are the Mannahouse domes in Portland, OR and Embassy of Heaven in Yuba City, CA.) Watch Steve’s story to get to know him more.
