In the desert it is sometimes hard to find a cool, safe place to rest, a place where your spirit is renewed by community and refreshed by living waters. We are glad you have found your way here to receive our extravagant welcome.

We hope you will come to know us as a vibrant, relaxed and diverse community of faith, and as a church that gathers to nurture, share and celebrate the wonder of life.

For at The Good Shepherd we are all spiritual seekers who find joy in community; meaning in living faith-filled lives; purpose in seeking to promote justice and compassion; and direction in following in the way of Jesus.



The mission of Samaritans is to save lives and relieve suffering in the Arizona borderlands. The conditions at our border have changed since our founding in 2005 and yet we are still focused on this same mission.​We accomplish our mission through these six main activities: Desert Searches; Water; Shelter; El Comedor; Operation Streamline; and Communication.All this would not be possible without a myriad of volunteer Samaritans.
