Horizon Church Staff
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.

My passion is to serve the people of this great city. God has been so good to me and to my family. I believe that God can take a mess and turn it into a message that would bring encouragement to change your life. He did it for me, and I know He can do it for you!Pastor G

Pastor Daniel Villegas and his wife Sonia came to Horizon Church in 2005 from Brooklyn, NY. They bring years of experience working in the ministry as Sidewalk Sunday School leaders in the boroughs of New York City. They have two amazing daughters and are very grateful to be a part of what God is doing here in West Sacramento.

I love serving God in every aspect of the ministry. This is a great undertaking and one that is not taken lightly. I understand my role as CBA of Horizon Church and would serve in this position with great integrity.Pastor Danny
Ezra and Ellie Allen
Ezra has been a member of our church since early 2017 and served in our youth group as the worship leader. He became Horizon’s full-time worship leader in early 2019. Ezra met his beautiful wife, Ellie, at Horizon Church and they were married in 2021. Ezra oversees the musicians and singers at Horizon church and loves seeing the people experience the presence of God. His passion is to demonstrate the Father’s love through praise and worship. He and his wife lead worship together.
I have a strong desire to build healthy worship communities within the local church, for the team and for those around me. I want to help people recognize their greatest value in Christ.Ezra Allen
Hannah is what we call ‘home-grown’. Born and raised in West Sacramento, she has seen her fair share of street violence that is related to gang and drug activities. Dedicated at Horizon as a baby and attending kid’s and youth ministry, she has literally grown up at Horizon Church.
When Hannah was 10 years old she knew she was called to work with children. In 2018, Hannah served as a youth leader, which led her to volunteering time in children’s ministry.
We here at Horizon are proud to have her serve as Director of our Children’s Ministry – Adventure Kidz Ministry.
She is studying to obtain her certification in ministry through the Berean courses offered by the Assemblies of God.
“When God calls you on a ‘adventure’ he’s saying he will be with you. He is beside you. I’m so excited and look forward to taking your kid(s) on a Adventure through scriptures. Teaching, guiding, and showing true love that God provides in His Word.”
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. – Joshua 1:9Hannah Horn
Martha Arias is one of our FamilyOne Bible Study teachers and a powerful prayer warrior. She gave her life to Jesus Christ in 1989 and since that day, her heart has been full of gratitude for all that God has done in her life, marriage, family, and ministry. She considers it a privilege to serve the people of Horizon Church.
I am a witness to the Power of God to save souls and transform the lives of many. I love teaching His word and praying for anyone in need. I know that the power of prayer brings change, healings, and miracles.Martha Arias
