Vance responded to God’s call to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2000, as a church
plant from First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia.
With a passion for God’s kingdom, he had a vision to launch a church focused
on joining in God’s activity locally and globally. Thus was Hope Church born in the fall of 2001
in Las Vegas, NV. From a small group of
eighteen adults in a living room, Hope’s fellowship has grown to 4000 people in
small groups desiring to connect people to live the life of a Jesus follower. Vance
has led Hope to understand that what God is doing is bigger than one church.
Since its launch in 2001, Hope Church has sent hundreds out of its fellowship
on mission, invested millions of dollars in God’s global activity, and has
commissioned more than forty churches in the Western United States.
seasoned church planter in the West, Vance speaks across the country and all over the
world from the passion of his apostolic heart to inspire people to join in
God’s eternal, redemptive mission of making disciples and multiplying the
church among every tribe, tongue, people, and nation.
Vance holds a Bachelor’s Degree
with a major in History and a minor in Business Management from the University
of North Alabama, and a Master’s Degree in Divinity from Mid-America Baptist
Theological Seminary. He resides in Henderson, Nevada, with his wife Kristie, and has
two sons, two daughters, a son-in-law, and one brand new granddaughter.
