Pastoral Staff


Jacky Stephenson

Senior Pastor

I like to say that the three best things that every happened to me are Jesus, Margaret, and Jordan. I married my rich, young, beautiful wife on June 21, 1989 and she has been my “good thing” ever since! In late October of 1996, I had an encounter with the Lord that changed EVERYTHING! Then on September 21, 1997, the Lord blessed us with our daughter, Jordi Rae, who has brought us nothing but joy. I have team roped for over forty years and still enjoy it today. It is something we do as a family. My girls are real cowgirls! I am a huge sports fan, cheering on the Spurs (Ginobili!), Astros, Cowboys, Longhorns, and the McMullen County Cowgirls. I have been called to proclaim the goodness of God. I love the presence of the Lord so praise and worship is life to me. The joy of the Lord is our strength, and if we are not having fun serving the Lord, we are doing something wrong!

Gilbert Marquez

Worship Pastor

I’m a husband and father of 2 boys and the owner and operator of a family business in Pearsall, TX. After receiving salvation at the age of 18, I quickly discovered that my interest in music was becoming a passion for praise and worship. Having been taught to play guitar at the age of 2 by my father, Pastor Gilbert Marquez, Sr., I spent years playing venues around Texas and the surrounding states as a solo artist and with my band, SURRENDER. I soon found my home for my God-given talents at CFC in Dilley, TX.

Kay Kinsey

Gracious Ladies’ Leader

My name is Kay Kinsey. My husband, Bill Kinsey, and I raised three children, one daughter and 2 sons, all of whom are born again children of God. God has blessed us with five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Bill and I receive them as a blessing from God. Our family moved to Dilley in 1976 from West Texas to continue a job in the oil field. We have always been satisfied to live in Dilley, knowing this is where God sent us and where He is keeping us. In 1985, I was privileged to attend Word of Faith Bible School which I graduated from in 1987. Growing up as a child, my desire was to become a teacher. Of course, I was thinking a school teacher. While I am not a public school teacher, God has called me to teach women about who they are, what they are, and what they have in Christ. Learning this will cause women to walk in victory!

Sonia Duque

Children’s Ministry Leader

I was raised in Dilley Texas, graduated from junior college, and six month later was in a marriage for 28 yrs. I began my relationship with Papa God when I was born again at the age of 25, became a mother 2 years later and soon after began my assignment in the nursery. Five years later, I became a mother for a second time. As my children grew up, I inched up from nursery, teaching every age in between to teenage youth, but my heart lies with the little ones. It’s been almost 23 wonderful years in children’s ministry and still counting. I was a store cashier for 4 yrs, a secretary/bookkeeper for 8 yrs, a kindergarten para-professional for 11 yrs (best time of my life), currently employed as a Compliance/IT Assistant in banking and Christian Faith Center’s Children’s Church Director. I thank Jesus daily for paying the price of my freedom in His victory at the cross so that my life could be!
