  • Wade Elftman

    Vise President

    My name is Wade Elftman - with a silent "T" - and I am the pastor of First Church of the Nazarene in Las Cruces, NM. The Lord has blessed me with a beautiful wife, Jayme and two awesome boys - Gavin & Riley. I have been a PK (preacher’s kid) most of my life but still a native New Mexican and it is a privilege to serve on New Mexico District. I have served in New Mexico since 2005 in three different churches, on top of running our District Teen Camp since 2013. All I want to do is serve the Lord with my life where ever and whenever I can in whatever capacity He leads me to, I just want to make His name known!
