  • Mario Latini

    Mario Latini
    Senior Pastor

    Mario and Stacy Latini made New Creation their home church in 1980. It was here that they began a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, met and married, dedicated their children, entered the ministry and were ordained. They started serving NCC by volunteering with the youth and doing outside maintenance. After they were married in 1985, they moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend Rhema Bible Training Center. Following graduation, they returned to New Creation Church to work as Youth Pastors for eight years. Mario and Stacy and their children, Ryan and Christen, moved to Athens, Greece in 1994 to establish a DOMATA Bible School for Mark Brazee Ministries. The Latini's returned to Longmont in 2002 where Mario now serves as Senior Pastor. Mario’s main emphasis of ministry has been teaching Ephesians 4:16, "As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love." (NLT) His desire is to help people find life, help and hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ and then equip them to use their gifts to fulfill God’s plan for their life.
