Assistant Pastor Tuan Tran and Family
I grew up in Vermont and was a general contractor there when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. I met Jasmine in 2000 and in January of 2004, we were married.
In the spring of 2007, the Lord led our family to Emmanuel Baptist Church of Keene, NH. We had an 18-month-old daughter at the time and our oldest son was due to be born. The Lord used the solid, Bible preaching and teaching of that church to transform our lives and to conform us more into the image of His Son. It was 1 year from when we started attending Emmanuel that we found ourselves packing all of our belongings and moving 900 miles south to attend Ambassador Baptist College. It was during our time there that the Lord confirmed His call to prepare for the pastorate.
After 6 years as a student, 4 ½ years on the facilities staff, and two more children, I graduated from ABC with a pastoral degree. The Lord burdened our hearts for the great need in northern Nevada and our initial plans were to complete my internship here at Grace Baptist Church and then to start a church in the area. The Lord had different plans and He made it abundantly clear to both the Lynn's and us that He wanted us to stay here in Fernley and assist in moving this ministry forward for the cause of Christ. I have been the assistant/youth pastor at Grace Baptist Church since August 2015.
