Southwest Ministries: Victory Guitar Outreach

ID: 21723
Start a Campaign

Victory Guitar Outreach is a ministry that seeks to spread the love of Christ through the power of music. Through free classes, Native American students learn to play the song “Victory in Jesus” alongside basic guitar skills. Upon completing the program, graduates keep the guitar that they used to learn.

Over a 15 year period, WGM missionary Steve Cartwright has taught over 300 students. Cartwright says that this class has truly met a great need in the Native American community; the ability to play a portable instrument is crucial for certain cultural practices like wakes, funerals, songfests, and other special events. For the Southern Arizona tribes of the Pima and Tohono O’odham especially, the portability and utility of the guitar has turned into a huge blessing for the churches and communities.

On the impact of the Victory Guitar Outreach ministry, Cartwright says that, “One of our first class graduates is now a worship leader on his reservation church,” and “Several of our students have held their own classes, teaching others about having victory in Jesus and how to play basic rhythm guitar.” Moreover, the class has seen evangelistic success; the local Siloam Church has seen members who have completed the program at a tribal drug and alcohol rehabilitation center begin to regularly attend church.

Here’s how you can help partner with the Victory Guitar Outreach program:


Because this ministry is funded completely through contributions, none of the success it has seen would be possible without generous donations. When you give to this project, you are helping bring the joy of music and the love of Jesus to Native American communities.


Pray that more individuals have a desire to learn the guitar and that this ministry becomes available to them; pray that this becomes a vehicle for spreading the gospel and transforming lives and communities.
