In October of 2019 God planted a vision in Joseph and Kristen’s heart for a church where people can belong before they believe. Shortly thereafter they were invited to lead a youth weekend in Las Vegas where God opened their eyes to the epidemic of youth homelessness in Southern Nevada and used this reality as a catalyst for their calling to the city. So in August of 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, the Gibbons moved with their 2 kids, Canon and Riley Jo as well as 5 close friends to plant Favor City Church.
“We love our city and with everyone we meet we are constantly reminded that we will never meet a person who was not made in the image of God! It’s the absolute honor of our lives to create a space at Favor City where people can belong, even before they believe.”
