OUR STORY

How it all started...

The history of this Las Vegas ministry goes way back to the 1970’s when it was first founded by Pastor Bertie McCoy of Jones, Oklahoma. The ministry first started as a crisis hotline that hurting people could call that needed prayer, crisis counseling, and hope. After a period of time, it evolved into a church called God’s Powerhouse, which later became Echoes of Faith Ministries.

There are many people over the years that have been touched and influenced by Echoes of Faith Ministries and Pastor Bertie McCoy, including the homeless, show girls, and drug addicts, as well as everyday people from all backgrounds. After Pastor Bertie’s retirement, Pastors James and Barbara Matza led the ministry for several years before their retirement.

Expanding the vision...

Pastor Godwin Azeke began pastoring Echoes of Faith Church in January of 2006, following the retirement of Pastors James and Barbara Matza. He married Rebecca later that same year, and she joined him in ministry full time in 2007.

As a means to continue and expand the vision of the ministry, Faith Life Family Church was birthed in January of 2011. Since 2006, the ministry of the church has grown to include radio programs in Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico, as well as online media including Facebook, YouTube, ROKU, Apple TV, Fire TV and several podcasts.

Where we are headed...

After 50+ years of ministry at our 1401 East Washington Avenue location in Las Vegas, our property has been sold and we are looking for a new building to purchase within the next year for the church, as well as a school. We are excited for the new directions this will take us and are looking forward to what God has in store for us at our new location. We are also desiring to plant churches and ministries in other cities around the country.
