What happens when a 21-year-old newlywed, fresh out of Bible College attempts to plant a church in his hometown?  And what if that town is Las Vegas, Nevada—the “sin city” of the nation?


As Dave and Anna Teis announced their plans to plant a church in Vegas, many discouraged them.  Could a young church plant survive there?  Did the city even desire such a church?   Was this young couple qualified to plant the church?


Over35 years later, the answer is obvious.  Not just one, but two churches are growing and flourishing in this needy city.


Through these pages, Pastor Teis records a journey of faith where miraculous provision, fervent prayer, willing sacrifice, and gracious perseverance mark the way to victory.  He transparently shares the failures, setbacks, and triumphs he experienced.  He outlines scriptural principles and provides practical resources for church planning in the needy cities yet waiting for the hope of the Gospel.


Dave Teis was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.  After completing Bible College in 1977, he and his new bride, Anna, returned to Las Vegas with a desire to plant a Bible-believing Baptist church.  Once a location was secured for the new church, the newlyweds spent the next 8 weeks knocking on 100 doors each day.  Liberty Baptist Church began on September 11, 1977, with 67 people in attendance.  After just 6 weeks, the church was self-supporting.  Today, hundreds of families call Liberty Baptist Church their home, and through the church’s ministry, thousands of individuals have trusted Christ as Saviour.  Liberty Baptist Church has given hundreds of thousands of dollars toward worldwide missions each year and has assisted 6 church plants in the Las Vegas valley.  Pastor and Mr Teis have 5 children faithfully serving the Lord and 9 grandchildren.

Planting Growing Churches
for the 21st Century, 3d ed.

It’s not about numbers

Planting Growing Churches for the 21st Century is not about how many people you can get through the church doors on Sunday morning, but about planting and growing spiritually healthy churches that are equipped to reach today’s unchurched generation. With vision, purpose, and practical advice, Aubrey Malphurs carefully leads you through the six stages of a new church, including funding, creating a strong servant leadership, and establishing values. The church planters workbook will help you implement the book’s contents into your own unique ministry situation, showing you how to develop a focus group, recruit a leadership team, and implement small groups.

This third edition of a popular and practical hands-on guide will inspire, encourage, and equip ministry leaders.
