Pastor Robert M. Cota


(Montebello, California)

Pastor Robert M. Cota, Pastor for 25 years in Montebello California. I have been under Pastor Cota's ministry for about 2 years.


Many things come to my mind regarding my pastor. He is sacrificial, humble, loving, and most of all obedient to Gods call.

Pastor works for the youth authority speaking to young men and women who have been involved in gangs. What an impact he makes in those forgotten lives.

I work under my pastor as the church administrator and the work he does which no one sees is so much more than what a person would do, but he does it without having a second thought of the sacrifice that is made whether it be his time, or money. He's always willing to be of service to those in need.

A man who was delivered from drug addiction, gang life and the miracle God had done in his life. Healed instantly from being a Heroin addict.

Many lives will enter the kingdom of heaven because of my pastor and I am proud to be be associated with Pastor Cota. He is a living miracle of what God can do for anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their savior.

I visited Pastor Bobby Cota's church in E.L.A back in the early 1980's. It was great!!! I miss that fellowship dearly! It really helped me as a young Christian. Bobby Cota's ministry was truly guided by the HOLY SPIRIT OF CHRIST!

The Man I Knew, Before Pasto Cota
by: Rosemary Cortez

I've know (Bobby) or Pasto Robert Cota you see i'm his x sister in-law Rosie. I know the miracle that god gave him is true and needed badley. If God had not heard his family prays he would not be with us today. I was there at the time. After that happen Bobby had a hard road to go down. You see it's like the 3 steps of the AAA one of the steps is to proud himself to his family and that was one of the hardest steps in his life but he came thru it with flying colors of course he had god on his side. God has granted Pasto Cota of way of life that he needed and the way to help many of his followers. So God Bless you Pasto and hung in there and now pray for your Family and your brother he may not think so but he needs your prays. Bless you, Bobby

A time in our lives that was painful n scary .. We needed our father to carry us thru the valley of our enemies n he did just that .. We learned how to trust in our lord ... We learned how to worship our father .. My mom leticia was in the praise team n I was an usher .. He taught us how amazing it is to serve.. To serve the homeless to help our neighbors to Love n love some more ... He shared n taught us About Gods beautiful Love and the importance of knowing Jesus in a new way that we had never known ( being raised JW)
He opened up new ways to realize n accept the love God has for us ..like God is our father our daddy our healer he's our savior our provider our strength .. He loves us with gentle n comforting ways like a daddy .. We can put everything in him n he will take care of us Carry us thru anything ... He makes a way where there seems to be no way .

God's Grace through a Pastor's Eyes
by: Ernest Avila

I want to thank Pastor Robert Cota from Faith Outreach in east Los Angeles who is probably still Pastoring in Montebello. I met Pastor Cota in May 16, 1982 at a play that he had called Homie do you know Jesus. I had just recently two days ago was released from the Hospital with a Gun shot wound to my head and literally survived it. God was on my side. I went by the church to see the play but was contemplating either going in there or to my neighborhood in Boyle Heights. I ended up at the play and seen the play called Homie do you know Jesus and God showed me in that play all of my life and i heard the voice of God asking if i wanted to continue to live my life this way or change my life and that he would perform a miracle. I gave my life to Jesus but still struggled with my addictions and God used this man of God to direct my life. Thank you Pastor Robert Cota for all of your support and your faithfulness to God Almighty. My son who was killed by gang members because of where he was living was attending church there in 1995 and his life was taken but he knew the Lord and he was going to the very same church that i got Saved. I really miss my son a lot precious boy.
