Leticia serves in the Awaken Women’s Ministry and sees serving in the church as the best way to help those around her experience Jesus. At 7-months pregnant with her first child, she and Pastor Elliot moved to McAllen to start Awaken Church. Immediately upon arrival she fell in love with Valley culture because of its similarities to her family and upbringing in Albuquerque, NM. Both avid watcher of “Fixer Upper” and browser of Pinterest you can often find Leticia attempting a DIY project at home. Her favorite night of the week is date night when she gets to end the night at home with Elliot watching their favorite shows in her pj’s.
Leticia says, “I love the vision of Awaken Church ‘people experiencing Jesus.’ Since giving my life to Jesus at age 13, I knew right away that I always wanted to be a part of a church where the vision was exactly that. I believe that the local church is the hope of the world and I will do everything I can to make Awaken Church’s vision happen.”
