Local, Global, Church Planting.
Here at The Hills our missions program encompasses Local Outreach, Global Outreach, and Church Planting. We believe in serving locally within Las Vegas, globally around the world, and missionally through both local and global church planning. Join us in being the hands and feet of Jesus!
We partner with the Serving Our Kids Foundation to help feed and meet the needs of Clark County's homeless and at-risk children. We prepare lunch bags to be sent to our local schools for kids to have over the weekends. You can make a difference by giving to missions or helping us pack and deliver these lunches.
We partner with the Women's Resource Medical Center of Southern Nevada to help save the lives of unborn children by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational support with their clients. This includes serving at the clinic with organizing donations, helping with paperwork, fundraising with their baby bottle campaign, etc. You can help by giving to missions, serving alongside the women and children, or volunteering at the clinic.
We partner with Olive Crest that helps foster children and youth in the Las Vegas area to connect them with a strong community to protect/nurture them and give them hope for a bright future. We offer free babysitting events to foster families, volunteer with admin responsibilities, and provide Christmas presents to families in need. You are able to help by donating to missions or getting involved with any of our partnered events.
We run an Adult Basketball League on our campus at the rec center every Sunday night during the game season. This is an opportunity to bring more people on our campus and share the love of Jesus through good community and good basketball. You can volunteer by helping us with taking stats, photos, running scoreboard, concession stand, or praying before a game. Follow us on instagram to stay up to date.
A group gathers together each week to give their time and talents to create items such as blankets, hats, washcloths, scarves, pillows, quilts, and dolls for those in need. Each item is imprinted with the truth, "Jesus Loves You". To get connected with this ministry, you can volunteer by creating the above items.
La Chapelle | Montreal, Canada
With nearly 2 million people in Montreal, less than 1 percent even attend a Gospel-believing church. Despite widespread lostness, La Chapelle has seen more than 500 adults saved and baptized, and three churches started in just a few short years! La Chapelle is continuing the mission of planting more churches and seeing lives changed for Jesus.
Refugees | Italy
We support a team of missionaries who are bringing the Gospel to Muslim refugees that have migrated to Italy. They organize sporting events and parties to bring the refugees together so they can show them how much they are loved and cared for not just by the team serving out there, but by Jesus. The work in Italy is so very important and something that Shadow Hills Church is honored to be a part of.
The Puentes | Spain
Since 2012, Francisco and Rebekeh have planted three churches in three different districts of the city of Sevilla. Their goal is to continue to offer leadership training and some oversight to the three existing churches, with the goal of continuing to plant more churches in Sevilla. Sevilla has a population of 700,000 with 1 Gospel preaching church for every 58,333 people.
The Mundos | Mexico City
Luis and Yolanda have served at “Rey de Reyes” Baptist Church for 28 years, at Cuernavaca (a city, located 1:45 hrs. South of Mexico City). Their church reaches people for Jesus through Sunday services and summer vacation Bible schools. Pray for them as they continue to spread the Gospel. Mexico has nearly 120 million people and is 85% Catholic.
One of the best ways we can love God and love others is by planting new churches. Churches help declare and demonstrate the power of the Gospel in each community. We are committed to planting churches here in our own city, as well as strategic cities all around the west.
Favor City Church
Las Vegas, Nevada
Joseph and Kristen Gibbons are planting Favor City Church, a new work that launched October 2021 in the Green Valley area. In 2019 they first learned of the epidemic of teenage homelessness in Southern Nevada which God used to open their eyes to the overwhelming need for new churches in our city. They accepted God's call to move their family to Las Vegas to plant this new work. They are incredibly grateful to walk this kingdom journey with The Hills.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Ryan and Kierstein are planting Image Church in the Mountain's Edge community of Southwest Las Vegas. The Ivy's moved to Las Vegas from Alabama three years ago to begin apprenticeship with Walk Church. They have been having church services since the middle of 2021 and hope to have a grand opening of a new kids' space in the beginning of 2022.
On September 15, 2019, Akeem and Jaime Smith launched Storyline Church. Pastor Akeem likes to say that “we are not defined by our color, creed, or background, but defined by a passion for God, life, people, and for the story God is writing in your life.” Pray for Storyline as they build this new, life-giving church in the Oakland area.
