About Pastor Teis
A little about my family…
Las Vegas is my home. My parents moved here before I was born so this valley in the middle of the desert is where God placed me from my earliest memory. My parents knew Christ and made deliberate attempts to raise us in church, but the churches we attended through my childhood were weak in doctrine. When my father died, at the age of ten, life changed. I was fatherless, growing up in Las Vegas, and raised by a single mom. At 16 years old, I heard the preaching of a young, charismatic preacher named Dave Wilheser. That night I gave my life to Christ, but never understood the necessity of salvation. I attended a public high school and tried to live for God in the flesh. I had a burden to start a Christian high school so other young believers would not have to experience the struggles I faced as a teenager in the late sixties and early seventies. Jerry Falwell sent out at letter introducing Liberty Baptist College. I took that as God’s leading to train for ministry in Virginia. In my freshmen year I trusted the gospel message. In college, I met my wife, Anna. We served in youth ministry together during our final two years of school. After graduation from college, we moved to Las Vegas in the summer of 1977. September 11, 1977, was the opening day of our church. We saw sixty-three people in attendance and celebrated two souls trust Christ as Savior. Thirty-five years later and God’s miraculous provision and power continue to amaze me. Our church membership is near 1,000 people, and God gave us a church campus worth millions of dollars in property and buildings. Our church exists to help others find hope that only a relationship with Christ brings. It is my desire that this site will encourage you.
