Paradise Church in Las Vegas logo



Mike Matijevich

Lead Pastor

Pastor Mike moved to Las Vegas in 1978 to plant Paradise Church. Since then, he has witnessed first-hand the supernatural overflow of the Holy Spirit upon God's people. Mike is a gifted teacher and speaker, and strives to present God's truth on a weekly basis. As our lead pastor, Mike oversees all minsitries and teaching at the church. Preaching on Sunday mornings is the highlight of his week. That’s his passion, and he considers ministering to God’s people a great privilege.

Mike's an avid hunter, loves spoiling his grandkids, and is always in pursuit of a great steak.
