Orange County Prayer Leader
Getting to know your County Prayer Leaders
Janeth is an avid worshipper and a mighty prayer warrior. Born and raised in a Christian home in Cebu Philippines as the eldest of five siblings, her worship experience started in her early days of youth choir. Her family relocated to California in the late 80s, and it wasn’t long before she found herself singing on the worship team at a small church in Long Beach, where she would meet her future husband Jay.
Janeth became a Registered Nurse in the late 90s and worked continuously in the medical field for 18 years, culminating as a charge nurse in the CVICU department at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Over the years she’s had the privilege of serving in multiple medical missions in Asia and Latin America.
In 2015, God prompted her to “jump” out of her comfort zone of being a nurse to help her husband with his growing startup business. She resisted at first, but the Lord continued to remind her of His better plans. It took her nearly a year to finally heed His calling, and the success of their company skyrocketed from there. Today their brand Gruv Gear has seen tremendous growth and is now distributed in over 60 countries worldwide.
Janeth and Jay have been blessed with 24 years of marriage and two amazing Godly sons, Jyrus (23) and Jyles (22). The whole family serves at their home church of 15 years at The Rock in Anaheim California, and it’s no surprise that Janeth still sings on the worship team! She has also been serving in the church council for 8 years now, and most recently became one of the coordinators for the California branch of “She Leads America,” a dynamic and diverse organization of Christian women leaders.
Janeth has a green thumb and finds time regularly to take care of her plants. She loves flower arranging and is fascinated with homesteading, as they build their vineyard home in Temecula Wine Country. She and Jay love vacationing in tropical islands, and consider Bora Bora Tahiti their heaven on earth.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)
