I love these guys!

Canyon Ridge Christian Church is pioneering a new movement in Las Vegas. With a clear calling to love their city, the team is united in their determination to be disciple-makers and life-bringers. They are living on mission to “Join Jesus and bring life to everyone, everywhere, every day.” On the other side of major challenges in the pandemic, instead of striving to regain what existed before, they leaned in and asked God to do a new thing. He truly is. The staff culture is fresh and healthy and open, and supportive. It’s such a cool time to join these amazing people and serve them as the Family Pastor.

About This Organization

Canyon Ridge Christian Church began in 1993 as a church plant from Central Christian Church in Las Vegas. Through the years, God has brought growth, expansion, and favor as they built the ministry. Today, Drew Moore, the Lead Pastor, is leading his team into uncharted territory, sensing that God is shifting them from being an attractional mega-church to a body of believers that is multiplying leaders beyond the walls of the building.

At Canyon Ridge Christian Church, the shift has been as much internal and team-driven as it has been externally focused. When each person on the team is living the life of a disciple-maker, their effectiveness and contribution are limitless. The leadership is developing a nimble and responsive leadership culture that will prepare them to move into the future with tons of momentum. They are learning together, and the staff of over 65 people is unified around the new DNA, and they love working and playing together.
