Our Vision

David, Frances & Jonathan Oberg

David Oberg is the Senior Pastor of Faith Alive Christian Center in Reno, Nevada, a family oriented, growing church that is thriving under Davidís leadership. David and his wife Frances' ministry is characterized by the Gifts of the Spirit, excellence in teaching, and a strong emphasis on the message of faith. Faith Alive Christian Center is positioning itself to be a force in winning the lost in Reno and abroad, reaping the End Time Harvest as Jesus commanded. FACC is also a mother church, and has a vision to plant ministries of faith around the country, already having done so in Texas, Washington, California, Utah, and the Philippines.

David is a 1984 graduate of Rhema Bible Training center in Broken Arrow, OK, founded by the Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin. While there, he applied himself to move in to the full time mission field, but in 1983 the Lord spoke to his heart about pastoring, which he followed obediently. The zeal for the lost is still evident in this ministry today, exemplified by not only reaching out to our local community, but by supporting missions around the world, fulfilling the Great Commission. The vision God has given him for this ministry will help to impact the State of Nevada, usually only known for darkness, with the light of the Gospel of Christ, through personal outreach into the community and different media outlets including billboards, radio, and television ministry.

David has served in several aspects of ministry, including being an instructor at Faith Bible College in San Jose, CA, under the leadership of Pastor Dick Bernal and Jubilee Christian Center, as well as serving several years as an associate pastor in California. He was also the associate pastor under Pastor Roy Cragg here in Reno, before assuming his present pastorate, which began in 1994.

During his time at FACC, David has been a vision caster and lead by example, implementing outreaches and ministries sometimes only associated with larger ministries. In 2001, we went on the air locally on NBC with our "Demonstrations of Faith" TV program. The name of our program is derived from a mandate that God gave Pastor David, and that is to "teach, preach, and demonstrate faith". We have now been on the air for our 10th season in Northern Nevada and California, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the message of faith and victory on the airwaves.

After reading a book by Pastor John Hagee in 2006 (Jerusalem Countdown), Pastor David was stunned at the treatment of Jews throughout history, especially at the hands of the church. He found it in his heart to try and bless some Jewish people locally, so he sowed an offering into a local synagogue. Little did he know at the time that this was a seed that would transform his ministry, and help him to have the first "Night to Honor Israel" in Reno, NV in 2008. Since then, he has traveled back to the land of Israel, and taken it upon himself and his church to stand with the Nation of Israel and the Jewish people of the world in their darkest hours. He became the City Director of Reno/Sparks for CUFI in 2008, and we are having our third NTHI in December 2011.

Pastor Frances' ministry is marked by close communion and fellowship with God, that translates into a strong prayer life as well as inspirational preaching & teaching. Pastor Fran has led the Women's Ministry at FACC for many years now, and is in the 17th year of hosting a Women's Luncheon and Conference, with powerful women's ministers from around the country always bringing the move of the Spirit and a Word in season to the Body of Christ in Reno.

David is an ordained minister through Jubilee Christian Center in San Jose, CA. He and his wife Frances were married in 1984. Their household expanded in 2003 with the addition of their first son, Jonathan. They both have a true pastorís heart, flowing together in the Gifts of the Spirit, and overseeing their congregation with love and compassion. They are committed to equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, and to helping people fulfill the plan of God for their life.
