Dr. Mary L. House

Meet Dr. Mary L. House and you’re sure to walk away feeling encouraged, inspired and even empowered to achieve your dreams. Mary’s rich history includes overcoming poverty, nurturing a strong family, owning successful businesses and helping husband and pastor Bishop Clinton House, Sr. build the congregation of Mountaintop Faith Ministries in Las Vegas from just 13 members in 1990 to more than 4,000. Today she is a successful businesswoman, family advocate, spiritual leader, motivator and mentor, literally inspiring hundreds of women, thousands of families and countless strangers on a regular basis.

Mary’s passion is to encourage and lift those in need by providing them with tools to achieve a life of self-sufficiency. In 1996, she co-founded the faith-based non-profit community organization CHR, Inc. (Caring, Helping and Restoring Lives) to help families of the unemployed and under-employed in Southern Nevada. CHR has utilized more than eleven million dollars in federal grants and private funding to provide assessment, training, coaching, counseling, placement, and support to help thousands of adult and dislocated workers find gainful employment and upward mobility. 

Mary has a contagious passion and determination to ensure that each client thrives, which sparks the same enthusiasm in counselors and other CHR staff. Not only do clients get the important technical assistance they need, but also a routine dose of encouragement to boost their confidence!

As a business owner with more than 10 years experience, Mary has taught classes in people management, sales, goal setting, planning, money management and other topics pertaining to managing a successful business. She currently serves as a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, National Association of Female Executives and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. Her philanthropic passion positively impacts the lives of all who encounter her.

The Moms In Business Network has honored Mary House with its annual “Women’s Advocate Award”, and she received the Nevada Phenomenal Women’s 2008 “Inspiring Phenom Award”.

As “First Lady” of Mountaintop Faith Ministries, she leads by example and routinely teaches thousands on topics that foster individual spiritual growth. Dr. House holds two Doctorate degrees (Doctorate of Divinity and a Doctorate of Humanity) and has received numerous community service awards.

Mary and Clinton House have two children and two grandchildren.
