HVCF began as a small group of Christians meeting regularly in the community center of Hungry
Valley.  During that same time, an elderly woman in the community began praying for an
established church in the community.  In fall 2006, Assemblies of God US Missionaries Augustin &
Cindy Jorquez were called to Hungry Valley to start and establish the first and only Christian church
in the community.

people currently fill these roles when they are available.
