Tara Crews

Women's Life Coach

Tara has been in full-time ministry for the past 30 years.  For the past 10 years, Tara and Jim have served as the leaders of a non-denominational church in Las Vegas called Valley Bible Fellowship Of Las Vegas. Under their leadership, the church experienced incredible growth and became one of the largest churches in Las Vegas. Through a series of confirmations over this past year, it became clear to them that God was wanting to take their God-given vision and passion for God’s kingdom and begin a new church campus in the Conejo Valley.
Jim and Tara have three children: Kylee (26 years old), McKenzee (24 years old), and Josiah (22 years old). As a family, they love hanging out with Mickey Mouse and his crew at Disneyland.
