Michael Steele


Michael serves as deacon at Christ Church Las Vegas and is husband to Justina. He and Justina have two girls who they train in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Coming from the east, Michael has been in Las Vegas for the better part of 15 years. He’s a tradesman with a background in carpentry, works as plumber full time, and aspires to have his work reflect the praise of the greatest creator of all. If he’s not reading scripture, listening to sermons or good books (on canon +), camping, hiking, or hunting, he’s probably fixing something with a hammer or wrench to the glory of God.

Nick perry


Nick and his wife Lizzie herald from the Northern California Mountains near the valley of Wine next to the great Pacific Coast. He grew up in Church his whole life, and hasn't known any other way. The covenant community and the kingdom of God are a priority in his heart, and the privilege of serving as a deacon at CCLV brings him profound joy. Additionally he serves by playing the guitar on the worship team and occasionally putting a bluegrass spin onto an old hymn. Nick is a qualified master plumber in the trades and loves working hard with his hands. He, his wife and their 4 children love everything outdoors, and an occasional ride on his Motorcycle hits the sweet spot. The Perry home is a house of song and study, making sure to grow in wisdom and in praise. The Perrys believe that God's world is a mostly fun and terrifyingly wonderful place to be and that we shouldnt worry as much as we do because we serve a Mighty God who cares deeply for us. This is truly the good life, all for Christ.
