What are the benefits you hope our churches will receive as a result of your work/role at the BRN?

My goal is for our churches to be engaged and inspired to take innovative approaches to ministry through the content that I create. My work as a communicator acts a nucleus connecting our churches to the national convention, state convention and to one another; fostering a symbiotic relationship all for the purpose of transforming lives and communities through the spreading of the Gospel.

A Few Fun Facts about LaVeta

PASSION

LaVeta has a passion for her community. Over the years she has become a conduit, bringing together the various organizations with whom she works. Those collaborations have served the greater good of the community. By first personally partnering with organizations, then cultivating partnerships among them, she has been able to make a greater contribution to her community compared to doing it alone, she said. She’s learned that by working together we can all make a difference.

HERO

LaVeta has two heroes: her father, Jose Andino, and her husband, Solomon Jones. Her father was born during the Great Depression. He dropped out of school to care for his mom and siblings. Despite not completing his education, nor being formally trained, he went on to have a furniture design and manufacturing business. He personally designed the furniture and the manufacturing assembly line. Some of his customers included Sears, local banking institutions and nursing home facilities. He was known for his kindness and generosity—always willing to help others.

Her second hero is her husband. He has a heart to please the Lord and compassion for people. He tirelessly serves our city, community and family. Solomon is committed to playing his part in order to improve the lives of others.

HOBBIES

LaVeta loves plants! She is self-described as the plant lady! Her husband calls her the plant whisperer. Her way of unwinding during the summer is to visit her local home improvement store nursery to look at plants and chat with other plant lovers. She also dispenses plant care advice and enjoy photographing her plants.
