Our Story

Years ago, the board of Christian Family Life (CFL) tasked Roland and Tammy Martinez to plant a church through CFL where they lived in North Carolina. As soon as the pandemic hit, Daniel and Gio Llerena felt a tug on their hearts in Tampa, Florida to explore what planting a church would look like during this crazy time. These two events, even being states apart, were happening simultaneously. As God’s sovereignty would have it, the Llerena family moved up to North Carolina and engaged Roland as to what it would look like to start a home church. Obviously, Roland was already on board. So, on June 7th, 2020, Mazevo Church began gathering. Despite not having much to start with, they obediently answered the call to model the Acts 2 church. Two years after the start-up, they decided as a core team to officially plant Mazevo church in Mooresville, North Carolina.

Core Values


The Word of God is living, active, and true! We will hold fast to the absolute truth of God’s Word, teach from it and learn from it every time we gather. (Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, James 1:22, Matthew 24:35)


God is the only One deserving of praise. In the Scriptures it says that God inhabits the praises of His people. Encountering God's presence in this way is life-changing and there is power in our praise! (Psalm 150:6, John 4:24, Psalm 103:1, Psalm 71:8, Romans 11:36, Psalm 63:3-4)


Prayer is the foundation of Mazevo. Prayer helps us align our hearts with the Father's heart. As we pray, the Father hears the cry of our hearts as well. Miracles happen when we pray. (1 John 5:14, Mark 11:22-25, Matthew 6:6-8, Matthew 18:19-20)


Genuine life-on-life fellowship with the community is important to the growth of the Church. We desire to create spaces that allow for community to be cultivated and for relationships to grow. Sundays are a catalyst for community to happen throughout the week. DON’T LET IT JUST BE SUNDAY! (Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:24-25, Ephesians 5:30, Acts 4:32, John 17:23)


Jesus was the perfect example of a servant. We desire to put the needs of others above ours. Creating this kind of culture allows our people to feel taken care of. No matter what the responsibility or task looks like, nothing is too big or too small for us as well. “The Son of Man didn’t come to be served but to serve.” (Mark 10:41-45, Matthew 25:35, Galatians 6:10, James 1:22)


Everything that we have comes from the Lord, so we actively choose to give back to Him and to support the local Church. We give so the kingdom of God can be expanded, and our faith can be stretched further to trust God’s provision in our lives. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8, Philippians 4:19, Malachi 3:10, Deuteronomy 8:18)
