About Summerlin Church

Demographic Information

Summerlin is a growing master planned golf course community in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is one of the most desirable communities in the Las Vegas valley. Summerlin is a significantly unchurched community. The master planned community has many neighborhoods with young families as well as senior neighborhoods; therefore our ministries are multigenerational. We are in close proximity to two Air Force bases, which provides the opportunity to reach and impact military families and develop spiritual leaders amongst airmen sensing a call to ministry.

Summerlin is the home to Red Rock Canyon, Vegas Golden Knights Training Center, Las Vegas BallPark, TPC Golf Course, and Sony Studios (coming soon). Summerlin offers beautiful parks, restaurants, shops, hotels, and several golf courses. The Las Vegas strip is approximately a 20 minute drive from Summerlin.

Our lead pastor and wife did their masters and doctoral studies at SBTS in the 2000s. Vegas is a mission field.  Because of the military and transient nature of the ministry here, we are always in church planting mode. We typically lose at least 1/3 of our congregation each summer due to military and other moves. Person must be outreach and discipleship focused and missions minded.
