Village Missionaries Richard and Ellen Lynam pioneered this community church one hour West of Las Vegas in 1968. Meetings were first held in the Community Center and then Village Missions arranged for the procurement of a 10' x 55' trailer which was located at the Pahrump Mobile Park. Later that same year Paul and Geneva Faris with their five children began their ministry here. Within a year land had been purchased, a well drilled, the septic system installed and the mobile home moved to the new site.
The church basement was started in the spring of 1970 and, although it was unfinished, the first church services were held there the first Sunday in August that year. Throughout the years, the has Lord supplied the financial needs for this growing church. Volunteer labor from this group has seen the construction of an additional classroom wing.
The Preschool ministry open to the whole community
has been successfully operating for many years and the
Community Christian Academy has been growing since 1998. The congregation has been self-supporting since the late 1970s and has elected to send a portion of their monthly offerings to Village Missions to assist with the continuing expansion of the Mission’s ministry. Sunday school, two Sunday morning Worship Services, Awana, and numerous other ministries and Bible studies now provide spiritual opportunities for anyone interested in growing in their relationship with God.
We now hold our Sunday Worship Services in our
multi-purpose facility to accommodate our expanding ministries, better enabling us to reach our community for Christ. We are continuing to see God work through Village Missions.
