Meadows Fellowship was founded as a non-denominational work in the city of Las Vegas in 1986 with approximately 25 people in attendance. They met at the Methodist Church on the corner of Charleston and Jones for 10 months, then moved into their own rented facilities on Rainbow and Oakey in September 1988. The church increased in size quickly, and as the church grew so did the need for space.
In 1996 the church purchased five acres of land in the northwest section of Las Vegas, NV, and over the course of the next 3 years the family of Meadows Fellowship met in 2 different rented locations, all the while continuing to put money away to build their own facility. August 8, 1998, Meadows Fellowship held it’s first service in it’s new building. April 1, 2004 marked a milestone in the financial life of the congregation as the debt for the loan on the land was retired.
Meadows Fellowship became a denominational affiliate of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in 1996. In September, 2005, ICFG appointed Pastor Ron Flores as Senior Pastor.
Pastor Ron previously pastored in Southern California for 23 years, 18 of which were within the Foursquare Church, where he also served as a Divisional Superintendent, a member of the Bylaws Committee, and a member of the District Ethics Committee. Since Pastor Ron’s arrival, Meadows Fellowship has increased to over 500 in attendance.
