The Velarde’s love the outdoors and spending time with his family. Ricardo 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 radically 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.
Our desire is for Venture Español to be a community of faith filled with real people dedicated to helping you know and follow Jesus. Our meetings will be designed to be relevant, comfortable, inspiring, and fun. Venture Español serves Latino families in Encinitas and many parts of North San Diego County such as: San Marcos, Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Solana Beach.
Be part of this community, whose values are from the word of God, service to others and the search for a loving God is serious.
