Izamar Marquez

Children's Ministry Director

Izamar was raised in Fallbrook growing up as the oldest of 3 in a very dysfunctional home. When her family moved to Escondido in 2017, they were looking for a church home where they could seek God and community, and find hope for their broken family. After a Google-search they came across EFCC and planned on attending the Spanish service. They were 45 minutes late to service but just on time for Jesus. That day her entire family and she accepted Christ and made EFCC their church home. She has since then been actively serving in the Spanish and Children’s ministry. Emmanuel Faith will always have a special place in her heart as it is where her family was restored, where she came to know the Lord, and where she met the love of her life.

3 years ago she married Jesus, who currently serves on the Worship Team. They love a good beach day and, home-projects but more than that, they love doing ministry together. They are looking forward to expanding their family in God’s time, knowing their kids will have a community of God-fearing people to love on them.

Izamar followed the Lord's calling to join the FaithKids team to reach children and, through children, reach families. She has a desire to partner with families as we raise up the next generation of kids to become disciples who walk in the way of Jesus with the heart of Jesus. God has placed it in her heart to reach Latino families in our community and to make them feel like Emmanuel Faith is their Church home.
