Faith Alive School of Ministry

Our Vision


In 1982, a small group of Charismatic Catholic Filipinos, led by Delfin Quesada, had their first meeting at the Super 8 Hotel in Reno. In 1984, they decided to form an official church, and thus was born “Believer’s Fellowship”. Initially the church was located upstairs on Grove Street and was led by Pastor Greg Wilson, then finally moving into our current location on 120 Hubbard Way.

In early 1988, Pastors Roy & Joy Cragg assumed the work, and pastored here in Reno for seven years, after renaming the church to “Faith Alive Christian Center”. The church had progressed and grown over the years, and began to establish itself as a thriving ministry here in Washoe County. In 1994, Pastors David and Frances Oberg moved to Reno to become the associate pastors at Faith Alive. God had a plan all along to get the Obergs to Reno, and after they became the Senior Pastors in 1995, the ministry of FACC has had a tremendous impact in this region.

The vision of the Obergs and FACC has come to pass in many ways, including mass media evangelistic campaigns such as “The Jesus Uncensored Project”, the “Pray the Prayer” project, and the “Steps to Peace with God” campaign, that all reached the entire population of Washoe County and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ. FACC has always had a vision to grow beyond the borders of Nevada, as we have planted churches here in NV, four other states, and the nation of the Philippines. FACC in Guiuan, Eastern Samar has thrived and reached their local community through the vision of our own Mrs. Naty Moore, and in Manila through Ms. Rose Rivera. Even through the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013, the ministry continues to rebuild and fulfill God’s purpose there.

Media has always played a large role in what we do as a ministry, and in the year 2000 we launched “Demonstrations of Faith”, a weekly TV broadcast locally on NBC Channel 4 in Reno, bringing the message of faith & victory to all of Northern Nevada and beyond. We believe in the Body of Christ and how it is described in the New Testament, so all of these things we have strived to do (especially in the last ten years) has included our friends in the Northern Nevada Spirit Filled Pastors Association, as there are many things we know that we can’t do alone. One of these things is “A Night to Honor Israel”, a gathering of Christians and Jews celebrating the fact that we have more in common than we do that is different, and showing our solidarity and support for the great nation of Israel, and the apple of God’s eye, the Jews.Pastor David is the City Director for Christians United for Israel here in Reno/Sparks.

Another directive in our vision is to “train up disciples”, and in the year 2006 we pioneered Faith Alive School of Ministry (FASOM), a 2 year school dedicated to training people in both the layity and full time ministry.

There are a couple of different ideas or principles that seem to be a hallmark of our church and it’s history, and that is: 1) You don’t have to be a big church to do big things, and 2) We have always given the Holy Spirit ample room and freedom to move in our services. There are a lot of ministries dedicated to the “seeker” style of ministry; we just want to be here for the ones that are hungry for more.

Do you want more of God in your life? Are you at a place where you feel as if there is something more to this amazing life God has given us? We would love for you to be a part of our history here at FACC, as we help each other get to that place.We hope we have given you a little insight into our history in Reno, and that you will join us in helping fulfill what God has for us together in the future!
