Las Vegas native Heiden Ratner fulfilled a dream when he played Division 1 college basketball, but his time on the court wasn’t his most defining university experience. At a college Bible study, he says, “I realized I was missing something. I thought, ‘These people have something I don’t.’ ”
9 OUT OF 10 PEOPLE IN LAS VEGAS DON’T KNOW JESUS.
Heiden became a believer and developed a passion for teaching, preaching and sharing the gospel. It led him back to his hometown where, “God called my wife to come alongside me in church planting, and we have been humbled and honored to serve the Lord in this capacity together.”
About 92 percent of the people living in Las Vegas do not know Jesus. The Ratners planted WALK Church to reach the lost in this spiritually dark place and to then help plant more churches in and around the city.
