A Church that Plants Churches

In 2017, we started on a three-year spiritual journey that we are calling the NEXT Campaign. Through this journey, we are engaging in Spirit-led opportunities in Las Vegas, the West, and the world to see God’s Kingdom expand to new people and new places.

Part of the NEXT campaign is seeing the first 1% of the western United States reached with the Gospel. We know that one church cannot reach a city or region by itself. To reach the first 1% with the Gospel, we are in desperate need of a movement. No man could accomplish such a movement. This is something only God can do.

We are begging Him to use us as a church to see up to one million people reached with the Gospel through planting 300 new multiplying churches in strategic cities in our region.

By way of update, in 2017, God allowed us the privilege to train many church planters and leaders through our M3 Church Planting Intensive. He also allowed us to plant five new churches who are pushing back the darkness in cities throughout the West. In 2018, we currently have three M3 Church Planting Intensives planned in Las Vegas and are actively seeking to reproduce this training in other cities in the West.

In your God Time, we want to encourage you to…

  • Pray that the five new churches we planted in 2017 would continue to engage their cities, make disciples, and reproduce and multiply the church
  • Pray that God move in power as we train church planters and ministry leaders through the M3 Church Planting Intensive in 2018
  • Pray that more churches are planted up and down the western United States

Here’s the question: “What if?”

What if God allowed us to see the Church reproduce and multiply like never before in the western United States over the next ten to fifteen years? Would you join us in praying for God to move in the West? We thank God in advance for His activity in and through us as a church family to reach the West with the Gospel!

NEXT Chapter: Foster Care Update

When we look back a decade from now, what is going to be different in Las Vegas, the West, and the World because Hope Church exists? Through our Next Chapter, we desire to seize the opportunities that are before us and identify how we are uniquely equipped to make a lasting impact for the glory of God in this generation.

One of opportunities that God has lead our church to focus on here in Las Vegas is Foster Care.  Specifically, we desire to impact the lives of children in need through engagement in the Foster Care System.  A new ministry has been born out of Hope Church to engage in this area of our society.  This new ministry is called Fostering Hope.  Please visit FosteringHopeLV.com for more information.  

In order to truly make a difference in this area, one of the steps required is for families from Hope Church to become certified Foster Parents.  As we looked at the certification process, we noticed two things: the certification classes were not being offered in our immediate community, and childcare is an obstacle for those seeking to attend the class.  As a church, we have taken the necessary steps to eliminate both of those obstacles.  On August 6, 2017, the Department of Family Services began offering Foster Care Certification Classes on the Hope Church campus.  This first class has a total of 38 people in the process of being certified.  Additionally, because of the generosity of Hope Church, we are providing free childcare for the families attending the class.

The certification class will last for 10 weeks, and prayerfully every person who has started will also finish.  We desire to work alongside the Department of Family Services and willing individuals until there are no more waiting kids in Clark County.  

Our prayer for the Foster Care System in Las Vegas is that one day there will be families waiting on children instead of children waiting on families.  Please join us in praying over these specific needs as we seek to be an agent of change in our city for the good of the children in foster care and the glory of God!  

  • Pray for God to raise up Godly foster families.
  • Pray for God to raise up support for foster families.
  • Pray for a great working relationship between Hope Church and the Department of Family Services.
  • Pray for Las Vegas to be a different place in 10 to 15 years because so many answered the call to care for orphans.
