Bringing Christ to the campus and beyond

Isaac & Prerna Durham

Isaac Durham is a member of the Hopi Tribe from Second Mesa. His wife, Prerna, was born and raised in India. At first glance, you might think the two cultures have little in common.

But both young people are driven by a mission to change the world in the name of Christ.

Isaac works part-time for CHIEF Inc. (Christian Hope Indian Eskimo Fellowship) and is president of Native Christian Fellowship at Arizona State University. He has served in ministries including Teen Challenge, Prison Fellowship and Native American Ministry. He is passionate about equipping people to navigate Native culture without compromising biblical values and principles.

Prerna grew up in India to a family of pastors and evangelists, and says she was “excited to study in a Christian country surrounded by people of faith.” She’s an electronics and communication engineer in her final semester of her masters of Global Management at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, and has started a campus ministry called T-Birds for Christ.

Together, this young couple are working together to change the world.
