Verity Baptist Church
Pastor Roger Jimenez was born in Venezuela. His family came to Christ through the influence of American missionaries. He was led to the Lord by his father when he was 4 years old. His family moved to the United States when he was very young.
Joann Jimenez was born in Northern California. At the age of 17 she was working full time and attending a local community college near Sacramento. The influence at this college had convinced her to be an atheist, even though she was raised somewhat catholic. Joann was saved when a Christian teenage boy, who had recently started working with her, began to present the gospel to her. After months of conversations and debating, late one night while closing, Joann decided to reject atheism and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal saviour! She immediately began to go to church with her Christian co-worker, got baptized and began to grow in her walk with God. Joann would later marry the young Christian co-worker that presented the gospel to her.
Roger and Joann Jimenez have been happily married since June of 2004. The Lord has blessed them with wonderful children and they are praying that God will give them many more.
