New Anglican Church in Southern Nevada

Fr. Howard and Deacon Erin Giles, clergy in good standing of the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, are forming a core group to plant an Anglican church in the Las Vegas/Henderson area of Southern Nevada. A group of twelve is planning Ash Wednesday and Lenten Soup Suppers in private homes. Please contact us so that you can join us in fellowship and in seeking the Lord.

Our first Sunday worship will be on Palm Sunday with a full schedule through Holy Week at an undetermined location.

The Lord has blessed us with chapter 34 of the Prophet Ezekiel as a foundation for our calling as a church. From this chapter, we were inspired to be named Jesus the Good Shepherd.

Our Statement of Purpose, Mission and Vision
We will seek those who are lost, and bring again those who were driven away, and will bind up those who are broken, and will strengthen those who are sick (Ez. 34:15,16a), by continuing stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42); holding fast the profession of our faith without wavering, provoking one another unto love and to good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, but exhorting one another as we see the day approaching (Heb. 10: 23- 25).

Please contact the Revs. Giles at 702-430-8789, at our mailing address, 2980 Sunridge Heights Pkwy, Suite 120, Henderson, NV 89052, by email, or visit our website at

We give thanks for the Anglican community that is supporting us in prayer and encouragement, and look forward to being a planting of the new province in Southern Nevada.

This church is fantastic. A contemporary approach with the timeless liturgy of the Anglican Church. Small but growing. New Christians are welcomed and shepherded. Us old Christians are constantly being fed. Fr. Giles is great Biblical teacher. All activities and services are strictly Bible-based. A member of the new Anglican Church of North America. Very friendly. I highly recommend Good Shepherd.
