Founding Pastors

Pastor Mark & Kim Linares are the founding Pastors of Living Faith Family Worship Church. Founded by the leading of the Holy Spirit in 2012 in Cotulla, TX. In 2005, Pastor Mark had an encounter with the Lord as the commission was clear about starting a work in South Texas. Each year as time went by Pastor Mark kept this tucked in his heart trusting on the perfect timing. On December 7, 2011, awoken by the Holy Spirit at 4:09 am the commissioning continued as Philippians 4:9 was delivered "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." At that time a visitation began in his life with trusted confirmations. Pastor’s commission as a disciple of Jesus Christ is to Lead, Love and Liberate people who seek an inner and supernatural filling of the Holy Spirit. 

Isaiah 40:31

"But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint."
