What happens when a twenty-one-year-old newlywed, fresh out of Bible college, attempts to plant a church in his hometown? And what if that town is Las Vegas, Nevada-the "sin city" of the nation?
As Dave and Anna Teis announced their plans to plant a church in Vegas, many discouraged them: Could a young church plant survive there? Did the city even desire such a church? Was this young couple qualified to plant the church?
Over thirty-five years later, the answer is obvious. Not just one, but two churches are growing and flourishing in this needy city. Through Hope for My Hometown, Pastor Teis records a journey of faith where miraculous provision, fervent prayer, willing sacrifice, and gracious perseverance mark the way to victory. He transparently shares the failures, setbacks, and triumphs he experienced. He outlines scriptural principles and provides practical resources for church planting in the needy cities yet waiting for the hope of the Gospel.
