Pastor & Family
Timothy and Saprina flowers were both raised in California and in pastor’s homes. Both have earned degrees from Christen Life College in Stockton California, although they do not attend at the same time. They have followed the example of the house of Stephanas in 1 Corinthians 16:15, by addicting themselves to the ministry of the saints, whether traveling abroad or staying local, engaging in teaching, preaching, and reaching out.
Timothy is an ordained minister of the Gospel, holding a ministerial license with the United Pentecostal Church Since 1989. He has been involved with Western District of the UPCI; serving in the Youth Division as well as Home Mission’s division, more recently as the Director of Home Missions. His call to Reno, Nevada was so specific that he considers his greatest responsibility and passion to pastoring the great people of God in this city.
Accepting the challenge of the Holy Spirit to plant a church in Reno, Timothy and Saprina began teaching Bible studies in their living room in the summer of 2000 and have not look back. They love living in Reno with their two daughters, Arabella and Elizabeth, who are both fully engaged and active in the church. Some of the family’s best times spent together and favorite memories include camping and bike riding within an hour of home, as well as the far too few family fishing days. Though there is a couple of very exciting, personal and ministry projects on the horizon, their main focuses of ministering to 600 people a week, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
