We have a strong desire to fulfill the last words of Jesus, the Great Commission. (Mark 16)
Acts 1:8 tells us "but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." We believe in starting locally, in our own communities, by hosting outreaches in many different forms, such as: Children's neighborhood outreaches, weekly street teams, citywide outreaches, billboard and media ministry, and much more. We also support traveling evangelists as well as missions in Mexico, the Philippines, and elsewhere. We have prison outreaches, as well as reaching into our local Parr jail. We have a hospital chaplaincy program, and a food pantry to help those who need something to eat.
Faith Alive's vision for prison and jail ministry includes all the facilities in Northern Nevada, as well as Susanville. We have at times had an active outreach into Lovelock, Silver Springs, and Carson City. We currently are in the Parr Boulevard Jail every week, with wonderful testimonies of lives changed, and the presence of God manifesting freedom in the darkest situations.
Pete Fall, our Prison Outreach Director, has been in prison ministry for well over 20 years. His team has dedicated themselves to going behind bars to see lives changed and transformed through Bible studies, prayer, discipleship and deliverance from oppression.
If you would like more information on this outreach, or have a loved one who is incarcerated, contact our church offices, we would love to speak with you and be a blessing to those behind bars.
NOTE: FACC Food Pantry and His Closet are
both closed the first Wednesday of the month

The Great Commission was written to every believer, and we want to do our part to fulfill what Jesus said. We place a strong emphasis on local outreach, while keeping a global mindset, seeing the world through the eyes of God, and having a heart for those who have never heard of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One man has changed nations...together, we can change the world.
And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

These are a few of the facilities and programs that Reno’s Faith Alive Christian Center is working with and sponsoring through their Missions Team. The F.A.C.C. Missions Team supplies the Word of God, food, clothing, school supplies, bedding, building materials, and whatever else is needed to improve the quality of life for those that are less fortunate than most.
We are also involved in local and national outreaches. We have hosted programs in our neighboring states to include California, Utah, and Washington, as well as Nevada.
These programs are usually held in low-income neighborhoods and consist of food and clothing giveaways, dramas, free raffles, movies, and tournaments of basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, chess etc. At the same time, we offer a day of fun for the kids with face painting, clowns, puppet shows, games with prizes, bicycle giveaways, bounce houses, free books and coloring books etc.
As we grow, we find that we are in need of additional “dependable” transportation for these mission endeavors. For anyone wishing to make a donation, please contact the Faith Alive Christian Center office at (775) 331-5024.
