Ruth Topete –

Assistant Bookkeeper/Secretary for Banning Church of the Nazarene

I have had the privilege of growing up in a Christian household. However, I was truly able to know God, on a personal level, at the age of 11. I since then have been part of the worship team, became the Worship Leader for our Spanish Church, and have had the opportunity to be the Youth Leader and help in the Children's Ministry. I have always known that I am here to serve God and to reach those in need of his salvation. He has worked tremendously in my life. He is so good even when we do not deserve his goodness.

My parents, Manuel and Leonor Veloz, are the founding Pastors of the Spanish Church, Roca de Salvacion, who also rent the building at Banning Church of the Nazarene. I attended Cal Baptist University in 2010, and studied to be an elementary teacher, with a concentration in Spanish and Music. In 2013, I married the love of my life and have two beautiful children, Micah (2014) and Elyse (2016) and now a new baby (2020) Ezra. Though I am temporarily away from my office duties, due to my knew baby, I hope to return soon.

I have been the office administrator/assistant bookkeeper here at Banning Church of the Nazarene since October 2018. My walk with God has not been easy, but it has been worth it.

" Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
