Our Mission & Vision
The History of Holy Trinity African Methodist Episcopal Church
Holy Trinity AME Church was founded on September 17, 1989 in the home of the Reverends Emanuel Wasson, III and Juanita V. R. Wasson, located at 409 Altamira Road, Las Vegas, Nevada. The following year, we moved to Mountain View Lutheran Church on 920 South Decatur where we held afternoon services. On July 29, 1991, the Official Board voted unanimously to go before the Annual Conference and request that we be taken into the conference as a full member. During the 1991 Annual Conference the Bishop Vinton R. Anderson, then Presiding Prelate of the 5th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, granted our request and took us into the conference. In June of 1992, to keep up with the needs of a growing congregation, Reverend Emanuel Wasson appointed Reverend Juanita Wasson as his Assistant Pastor. With the dynamic teachings of both Pastors, the congregation continued to grow and attract people of diverse backgrounds. On May 9, 1993, the church witnessed the acceptance into the ministry Cynthia Pitts, followed by Jacqueline Black on September 26, 1993. In 1995, the church relocated to 5243 West Charleston. In 1996, it was agreed that we should look towards our future and consider purchasing a church or building our own. Together we have worked towards this goal and in November of 2000 we moved to our current location 700 Lola Avenue, North Las Vegas, Nevada. Our edifice was dedicated on April 29, 2001 at 3:30 pm. Since then, we have been blessed with the ministry leadership of Reverend Delman Howard, Reverend Pamela Mason and presently, Reverend Charles T. Wright. It has been a long, but fruitful journey and God has truly blessed us.
