Lorene BelkoChurch Secretary
Lorene graduated from Union College with a B.S. degree in Music Education. She taught a few years and realized that really was not her calling, so she began working as a secretary. Before moving from the Denver area to Turlock she worked for the College Board. After moving to Turlock one of the first things that happened was a request from the pastor that Lorene become the secretary at the church.
The job has evolved from answering the telephone and typing the bulletin, to a great deal more responsibility. Among her responsibilities are knowing the standards, policies and procedures within the Turlock Church, being sensitive to the interrelationship of both people and functions within the organization, and keeping sensitive and/or personal information absolutely confidential.
Lorene enjoys reading and studying the Bible, her family, music, sewing garments, quilting, and cross stitch. She and Ivan enjoy traveling, and have had the privilege of traveling around the world during the time the Belko Brass was playing for evangelistic meetings.
One of her favorite Bible texts is Ephesians 1:18-20.
