Pastor Rocky and Debbie Polito

Pastor Rocky

Tell us a little bit about your family, your ministry life (school and positions held) and what you like best about ministry.

I have been married to Debbie for 26 years and we have two great Children Andrew and Rachel. We love hanging out together watching movie and going to Disneyland and the ocean. I went into the ministry over 20 years ago and Deb and I have served in many different ministries. Recently we were lead pastors in Dayton, NV for 12 years. Since coming to NLCC we have served as youth pastors and really enjoy ministering to the students at our church. Both of us are very involved in many different aspects of ministry and we love helping in any way possible. Both of us are excited to see where the church goes now and in the future

What Scripture has recently impacted your life?

Psalm 40:1-3 NLT I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord
