Meet the staff of Living Faith Church
Pastor Mario and Irma are the founders of Living Faith Church and have had a passion for seeing lives transformed, restored, and redeemed by the power of Jesus since Living Faith's birth in 1998. They have two children, Rebekah and Andrew, who both serve in the church in various capacities as well.
Pastor Mario is outreach minded and believes in "being the church" outside of the four walls. His messages are inspiring and uplifting, yet challenging and thought provoking. The Word of God is brought out each week in a casual, easy to understand way without ever compromising Biblical principles.
Irma is the perfect compliment to Pastor Mario. She is full of grace and wisdom and brings out the best in him. She is a beautiful example of a Godly woman.

It is he who made us, and we are his we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
