Interview with Point Loma Campus Pastor: Marcus Preciado
By Vittoria Allen

When and how did you become a Christian?

I grew up a pastors kid and accepted Christ into my heart earlier than I can remember. I rededicated my life to the Lord and focused on living for him when I turned 25 years old.

What is your history with Rock Church?

I was part of the Rock’s initial staff when it first launched. I eventually served as the Jr. High, Sr. High Pastor and oversaw the worship as well. I transitioned out for a season and returned 5 ½ years ago as the Director of Sports.

Tell me the story of how you and your wife met! 

We were introduced by a mutual friend while attending SDSU. We both studied business there.

What is your favorite thing about each other? 

I love that Tracey is the sweetest girl I have ever met. And Tracey likes my heart and sense of humor.

How many children do you have? 


What has being a parent taught you? 

Unconditional love and don’t walk on Legos.

How did you come to be in ministry? 

At 25, I asked God what he wanted me to do, and so he immediately changed my heart to ministry.

Did you always imagine becoming a pastor? 

No. Growing up a Pastor’s Kid I ran away from that possibility.

What were your reactions to being asked to become Point Loma’s Campus Pastor? 

Lot’s of prayer and council.

How have you seen God moving in this community? 

It’s great to see Point Loma come together as a campus family. We had 307 people give us their Saturday morning to clean up and beautify Sunset Cliffs Natural Park.

Do you have a favorite Bible passage? 

Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

What does “me” time look like for you? 

Any alone time I can get with my wife.

If you weren’t a pastor, what would you be? 

Unemployed or a professional interpretive dancer.

Would you choose the ability to fly or breathe underwater? 


Favorite Panamanian dish? 

Arroz Con Coco. (Coconut Rice)

If you could pick one thing to share that people probably don’t know about you, what would it be?

I am super handsome, but it’s just hard for people to see it.
