Support Team

Tom Tetting

Finances

Tom began overseeing the weekly finances of GR.Church in April of 2020. Tom grew up in the lutheran religion and believed and was taught infant baptism, confirmation, and corporate confession was getting him to heaven. After moving to Las Vegas in 2005, he lived as a good person according to worldly standards, but something was clearly missing. After being invited to a local church by a summer intern, he heard a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. On the morning of January 10, 2010, Tom repented of his sin and received Christ as his personal savior. He now knows 100% that his home is in heaven when he dies. He praises God for churches that preach salvation through Christ alone!

In 2019, she married her best friend Harrison, and they both have a passion for Christian Education. Leann has a Bachelor’s in Music Education in Piano, and a Master’s in Church Music.
