Ricardo Velarde

Ricardo loves music, the outdoors and spending time with his family. He is married to his amazing wife Lulu and they have four children David, Larissa, Vanessa and Ariana, all of them love being at the beach or a lake grilling some carne asada. After being radi-cally transformed by Jesus at the ages of 16 and 12 they soon knew their passion was to see lives transformed by God’s grace. Then after graduating from graphic design school, got the opportunity to work as a video editor, in printing, and many church projects. In 2007 they landed in Temecula, California, where they serve together the community, planted a Spanish Church and served as a board member of International Christian Adoption. Right now, Ricardo is currently working on a Bachelor’s in Biblical Studies and Leadership. He has served as a pastor for more than 15 years and they are honored to be part of the Venture Team helping reach the Latino community in the North County San Diego.
