Meet Living Stones Church:

Living Stones is a Bible preaching, Christ exalting, missional family of churches in Northern Nevada. Currently, we are a family of six Living Stones Churches. This position is for Living Stones Church Reno, which is in the heart of downtown.

We exist to see a fundamental shift in the spiritual climate of Northern Nevada.

Northern Nevada is one of the least churched places in the United States, resulting in very few people knowing and loving Jesus. In the history of the world, there has never been an intentional church planting movement in our area. We hope to see that change in our lifetime and are praying for God to bring revival.

Five Core Values Shape Everything We Do at Living Stones: 

  1. We strive to make Outsiders Insiders:
    • Like Jesus, Living Stones does everything possible to make outsiders insiders in the Kingdom of God. No one should be blocked from the gospel and the opportunity to be reconciled to God. 
  2. We are Disciples Making Disciples:
    • Disciples are people who follow Jesus, find their identity in him, and enjoy relationship with God. Part of following Jesus means we invest our whole life to help others grow spiritually as they learn to know, love, and follow him too.
  3. We are In the City, for the City:
    • Physically - By caring for physical needs of the hurting and underprivileged in our city.
    • Culturally - By participating in and shaping all that is good in the culture of our city.
    • Spiritually - By praying for and guiding people toward the freedom and fulfillment that can only be found in Jesus through the proclamation of his gospel.
  4. Unity in Diversity:
    • The church of God is to be a house of prayer and worship for all peoples and ethnicities. This is the heart of God and will be fully displayed around his throne in heaven. We long to see integrated racial diversity in every level and function of our churches so we can display Jesus’ Kingdom on earth.
  5. We are Churches Planting Churches:
    • Church planting is the most effective way to see people come to the knowledge and love of Christ. We are constantly seeking to raise up new leaders and send out more church plants. We invest 10% of our money every year into church planting throughout the United States and the world.
