Ryan Ivy felt the Holy Spirit working in his heart at a young age, then felt the call to ministry at 11.
But until he moved to Las Vegas in 2018, Mobile, Alabama, was the only home he’d ever known.
A missions trip to Philadelphia introduced him to church planting, and when the church planter asked him when he was going to get involved, a fire was lit.
During a vision trip out West, God gave Ivey a heart for Las Vegas, a city where 92% of residents are lost. “We knew God was already at work, and we wanted to join Him,” said Ivy, who is now part of the Send Network of the North American Mission Board.
