Pastors Coco & Lynn Perez

Pastor Coco Perez has been a pastor, evangelist, and world mission leader since 1976. He is currently the lead pastor of Horizon Church in West Sacramento, California, and has been since 1995. He completed his ministry degree from the Assemblies of God Global Bible Institute. Pastor Perez has been studying biblical prophecy ever since his conversion in 1973 (48 years). In his own words, “I have studied, and researched this subject consistently, and exhaustively, for thousands of hours.” Coco has been teaching biblical prophecy ever since. As a sixties kid, influenced heavily by drugs and the hippie movement, his sole desire was to become a professional rock drummer. It wasn’t until his experience with God, one hot summer evening, on the banks of the American River, that God changed those plans and directed him toward ministry.  As fate would have it, a new Christian friend placed a book in his hand entitled…The Late Great Planet Earth, by Hal Lindsey. This book sparked an interest in the study of the last days, biblical prophecy, the book of Revelation, and the second coming of Christ. 

Pastor Coco’s beautiful wife, Lynn, is the rock behind their ministry. Lynn has been involved with, or in charge of, women’s ministry from the day they decided to serve in the church. She not only takes care of the women’s ministry at Horizon Church, but is also behind the scenes of just about every other ministry, helping with the kids, small groups, and Bible studies. She exemplifies the word “leadership” and has a great team of women who help alongside her.
