Welcome to Living Stone
Living Stone has become a beacon of light for the region as we have made church relevant for our time. The vision began in 2001 to see the lives of people changed by the transforming power of God. As we have grown, Living Stone has become a church of restoration, expansion and empowerment. Pastor Martin Seca leads the church with an exciting vision that encompasses families and dreaming the plans God has destined for you. Moving toward the vision we are able to connect with those around us for greater things to come.
What to Expect
As a church, we believe that it should be filled with a passion for the presence of God. We worship with life and zeal, connect with those around us as we receive an impacting and relevant word. With services offered for the entire family, we can say that there is a place for everyone. There is only so much that can be said about the experience, services at Living Stone are something that truly has to be experienced.
PASTORS MARTIN AND SANDRA SECA
In May of 2001, Pastor Martin and his wife Sandra Seca became pastors of what was then First Assemblies of God, in Del Rio. Taking a step of faith, they took the position to fulfill a need that the church had at the time. Three years prior, Pastor Martin was helping the pastor as the youth leader. During the transition from youth pastor to lead pastor, Pastor Martin began working with the congregation of 25-30 members and little by little the congregation started to grow.
One Sunday night service in 2001, there was a powerful move of the Spirit. Pastor Martin found himself at the altar and knew God was moving in a very special way as he could hear people praying. At that moment, all that was coming to Pastor Martin’s mind was that every time God’s presence touched an individual the name of the individual was changed. In the Old Testament, Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, and in the New Testament Saul’s name was changed to Paul. When the presence of the Lord was in a place the name of the place was changed. When Jacob had a vision of the angels coming and going up a ladder, he named the place Bethel. At that point was when Pastor Martin felt that the name of the church should be changed.
After praying and fasting for God’s direction, 1 Peter 2:4-5 was given to Pastor Martin.
“To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, ye also, as lively stones, are built up as spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”
Since then, Pastor Martin and Sandra Seca have led as Lead Pastors of what we now know as Living Stone Worship Center, a place of restoration, expansion and empowerment.
Pastor Martin and Sandra Seca met in Eagle Pass, Texas, married and enjoyed the Air Force life as newlyweds. Soon after, they expanded their family welcoming their first born daughter, Lauren and a few years later Martin Jr. Today, Pastors Martin and Sandra enjoy every moment they can with grandkids Eliana and Ethan Gutierrez, children of eldest Lauren and husband Eric Gutierrez.
Aside from pastoring, Pastor Martin travels as an international public speaker to build better families, communities and companies. Pastor Martin is also an author of the book Seize Your Moment: A Modern Day Fable With 5 Steps to Achieve Your Dreams. First Lady Sandra Seca works with the women of Living Stone and serves as a community counselor. First Lady Seca is a graduate of Sul Ross State University with a Masters in Education and Counseling.
