Onica Meraz
RiseKids Coordinator


Onica has been serving in ministry for over 5 years at several different churches. She joined the Rise family in 2016 and was asked to join the staff in 2017, co-leading and overseeing all ministries from birth-5th grade. She loves seeing new volunteers join the RiseKids team so they can experience what she gets to every week - kids' hearts being changed by Jesus. Onica also loves being challenged by the sermons each week and witnessing (crying her eyes out) during the monthly baptisms. She lives in Tulare with her husband, Ivan, and her three children, Lizza, Bree, and Miles.
