Lybrook Navajo Mission was formed in 1952 by the General Board of the Church of the Brethren (now Mission and Ministry Board). As the Church of the Brethren’s only denominational outreach to Native Americans, it has had a significant and continuous impact. Its focus in prior years, in response to the special needs of the area, has included sharing the Gospel, combating alcoholism, providing public education and medical care, and meeting numerous community and family needs including maintaining a cemetery and providing a source of safe potable water to the area.
Lybrook Community Ministries, Inc. was formed in 2009 to continue the work of Lybrook Navajo Mission and to bring centralized leadership and operations to the Lybrook community. Tókàhookaadí Church of the Brethren , an anchor of Lybrook Navajo Mission, continues as part of the faithful vision that is now Lybrook Community Ministries.
