Our Unique Ministry

Gods Lighthouse in the Desert

Isaiah 58 Project earned its nickname from all of the people, needy or  not, who have been attracted to our church, which is filled with God's  Love and with the Holy Spirit.

This ministry cannot be  conveyed with only a few paragraphs and pictures.  The most important  aspect is that Pastor Mike Hobby was true to his vision of years ago.   Leaving Washington State in 1987 and coming to Quartzsite, Arizona, Mike  and Linda Hobby began feeding people from an old Greyhound bus  converted to a soup kitchen. Isaiah 58 Project grew miraculously through  several nearly impossible stages.

God provided money,  resources, and more volunteers so that the Project was able to begin  serving in the Fellowship Hall of a local church.  Within 3 years the  Isaiah 58 Project out-grew their location and were being forced to move;  but to where? 

Pastor Mike received a phone call for a  meeting:  he was offered the perfect location if he could just come up  with the back taxes of $68,000.  God opened hearts, and within one week  he miraculously had the needed sum.  The current property became Church  of the Isaiah 58 Project of Arizona in 2006.

Taking 3 years  just to begin work in the kitchen of the main building--that for ages  had been used to store an incredible variety of junk stacked to the  ceiling--we are now able to offer the following services:




Because of  generous support and many devoted volunteers, Isaiah  58 Project of Arizona is able to provide:

  • Discipleship Program
  • Nearly 15, 000 meals every winter season to the homeless
  • Food boxes for families and hungry travelers Monday, Wednesday and Friday  9am-12
  • Warm showers:  Monday - Friday 9 a.m. -12 noon
  • Clean clothing:  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9 a.m.--12 noon
  • Non-medical emergency care
  • Assistance in securing I.D.'s and Social Security Cards
  • Office Hours: Monday --Friday 9 a.m. - 12 noon
  • Hot meals daily beginning Nov. 1st. Monday through Saturday 4:30 p.m. --6 p.m.  Sundays from 4:30 p.m. -- 5:30 p.m.




Isaiah 58 Project each year prays about the best works which would  help us more effectively to help the homeless and the hungry.   We had a new building donated that, with a lot of hard work, half of it  became a climate controlled food bank and the other half a shop.

   Also, with the help of a church in Wisconsin, the badly needed shower house has been built.

     The grounds have been cleaned up and all the buildings have been given a fresh coat of paint.

   When people are  in need of a  shower, many also require clean clothing, food or a hot meal, we are prepared to help them.  The ministry requires much effort and lots of volunteers to sort clothing, stocking shelves, cooking, answering the telephone, many maintenance jobs , washing dishes and lots of cleaning . --Pastor Linda
