Miracle Valley Bible College

The community of Miracle Valley was founded in rural Cochise County in 1959 by evangelist A. A. Allen who established the Miracle Valley Bible College (MVBC) on 1240 acres along the south side of Highway 92. Since Allen's death in 1970 the property has been purchased and/or occupied by a variety of organizations: the Don Stewart Evangelistic Association, later the Don Stewart Association; the Southern Arizona Bible College, operated by the Hispanic Assemblies (until 1995); and the Miracle Valley Bible College and Seminary, operated by Harter Ministries (from 1999). The property was foreclosed on in 2009 and a subsequent sale in 2011 to Miracle Valley Arizona Ministries (founded by missionaries Gilles and Diane Langevins) fell through. In 2014 the property was purchased by another group planning to restore the abandoned and derelict campus and re-establish a bible college.
