Meet Living Stones Church:

We are a family. Family means we are committed based on our common roots and DNA. Family means we support each other even when it means personal sacrifice. In times of strife, families are committed to working it out. Family is a place to belong. It is also expected for families to grow. This is what we are about. There are five major benefits to being a part of the family: Brotherhood, Accountability, Collaboration, Shared Resources, and a Trusted Name.

BROTHERHOOD - You are not alone. As leaders and as churches. Brotherhood means we get to link arms in the battle and support each other when we are feeling weak or need some help. It also means we get to rejoice together over the victories God grants us.

ACCOUNTABILITY - As Christians, we are both saints and sinners. The LS family is committed to holding each other accountable to the work of the family which is being healthy churches and planting healthy churches according to the LS DNA.

COLLABORATION - We can do more together than we can apart. The best ideas and practices are formed in a multitude of counselors. Collaboration enables us to share ideas, sermon series, momentum, and strategies to more effectively make disciples in our cities.

SHARED RESOURCES - Planting and running a church is difficult and takes a lot of resources. Partnering together as a family enables us to get the most “bang for our buck and time.” This enables each church to get to the work of making disciples without having to worry about “recreating the wheel.”

TRUSTED NAME - God has blessed Living Stones with a good reputation in Northern Nevada. We are known as a church that seeks the city’s welfare, loves the Bible, and welcomes outsiders.

About the Worship Director:

Lead the people of God into His presence through musical worship.  Living Stones seeks to see a fundamental shift in the spiritual climate of northern Nevada, and we believe transcultural music is vital to that shift in our city, as we seek “Unity in Diversity.” The Worship Director’s role is to recruit, train and mobilize the church body to that end.
