Wayman and Nelda Mitchell were married for 63 years, until her passing in 2016. Neither of them had a religious upbringing, but experienced powerful conversions in their mid-20’s. After responding to the call to preach, they pastored a number of churches in Canada, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, and California. In 1970 they came to Prescott to take a small, struggling congregation. Shortly after arriving, God saved a number of hippies and they welcomed them into the church. God began a marvelous outpouring of conversions and growth in connection with the “Jesus Movement” of the 1970’s. As God revealed His plan for discipleship, churches began to be planted throughout the US, and then spreading to many other nations. The Mitchells have pastored as missionaries to Australia on 3 different occasions to accelerate the movement there. Pastor Mitchell continues to travel extensively throughout the world preaching in various Potter's House conferences, rallies, leadership meetings, discipleship classes and healing crusades, bringing his passion for God and over 59 years of ministry experience.
