In early 2020 we began to sense God move our hearts toward a new calling. In years past, God had used Matthew 13:11 to call Christian into ministry to teach and lead in the local church. We weren’t sure how that would pan out, but in July 2020, we decided to leave our hometown of Las Vegas to discern what God’s next step for us was. Believing he wanted us to ultimately do something in the West, we naturally went East and landed in Kansas City in January of 2021.
While there, we joined an incredible church that allowed us to have space to explore what God was doing in our lives. We eagerly prayed about what he wanted us to do and where he wanted us to do it. To our surprise, Las Vegas continually came back as a city we both unquestionably had a heart, burden, and passion for.
After a year and a half in KC, God overwhelmingly confirmed through our church, prayer, the counsel of others, and Isaiah 43:19 that he was doing a “new thing” in the spiritual “desert” of Las Vegas and had placed us in the middle of it. On June 13, 2022, we said yes to planting a church in our hometown.
With much support and affirmation from our second home church in KC, we will be relocating to Las Vegas in July of 2023 to prepare to plant King’s City Church.
