Our Story

How it all started...

Our story began when two pastors heard the voice of God.  One, to release his church and the other to assume a church that will be hurting for a pastor.   Pastors John and Eva Ponder established Christian Faith Center, Tucson Incorporated in 1997 and began their work as an Inner-City Church.  Pastors Randy  and Lori Winkles began Faith Alive Church of Tucson in June of 1999 and began building a ministry that was built on the Word of God in demonstration of the Holy Spirit.   In September 2004, Pastor Randy was working out in the gym when he was lifted up into the heavens and the Lord spoke and said, "Write what you see."  He began to draw out a building and layout of a facility and the the Lord said, "do not renew  your lease, I am giving you a building that the people will be hurting for pastor.  As a woman gives birth to her child in nine months, I will bring you into  this new ministry.  
In February of 2005, Pastor Randy was introduced to Pastor John Ponder and had a short meeting.   Two Weeks later, Pastor John called Pastor Randy and asked if he would consider "merging churches" and taking over Christian Faith Center.   He got a release from the Holy Spirit to move to Gary, Indiana and become the Executive Support Pastor for Pastor Steve Munsey of Family Christian Center.   In May of 2005, Faith Alive Church of Tucson began having services with Christian Faith Center and on 1 June 2005, Pastors Randy and Lori Winkles assumed control of Christian Faith Center and became the Senior Pastors.    In 2010, Pastor Randy was attending a Leadership Retreat in Tulsa Oklahoma and he heard the voice of God say, "Step out of the shadow of Moses into a Joshua generation and change the name of the church."  He picked up the phone and called his wife and told her what the Lord had said and she heard the same thing in Arizona.  He brought it to his council and everyone was in favor and on August 12, 2010,  Christian Faith Center, Tucson Incorporated became known as Living Faith Christian Center, Tucson International.  
The mandate on Pastors Randy and Lori Winkles lives is to raise up a Supernatural  Church that flows in the power of the Holy Spirit expanding God's Kingdom and lifting up the name of Jesus Christ.    Pastors Randy and Lori truly believe that God has called every believer to operate in the Supernatural and to be victorious in every area of life.  

Expanding the vision...

LFCC's Vision is to Refresh Generations, Refine Culture and Revive Destiny.   This is done by applying the  C3 Model:  Connect People to God; Connect People to People ; and connect people to Ministry.     Pastor Randy and the LFCC Pastoral Team is dedicated to teaching, living and believing in God's Word producing  Kingdom Results.    The Family of LFCC is taught how to "expect" God to come; "Shift  or flow with the Holy Spirit when He shifts; and surrender to God's will and allow Him to operate.

Where we are headed...
