Ronald Laitano, Minister of Music
Email Me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Ron Laitano is our minister of music. He is married to Andrea Gabrielse Laitano, whose father Dr. Ken Gabrielse led the worship in our church for over 15 years.
Ron is a native of Honduras and came to the states in August 2002 to attend New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. (He speaks English so flawlessly it's obvious he's not from around here!) He has received his bachelor's in music with a minor in biblical studies and a master's in vocal performance, and currently sings with the New Orleans Opera Company. Andrea is also an accomplished solo artist and also has her master's degree.
Given ample money for anything he wanted to do, Ron would have a yearly artists series in which the church would host multiple Christian artists and provide concerts free to the public.
Able to invite anyone to dinner, he says, "I'd invite President George W. Bush. I would love to ask how he was able to stay humble and determined in the midst of all the criticism."
What books are by your bedside table, Ron? "Hey, I just graduated. I thought I was done with that!"
What part of your job do you enjoy most? "The amazing support staff." And least? "The BAD orchestrations." Favorite movie? "The Lord of the Rings Trilogy." Favorite restaurant? "Crazy Johnnie's Steak House. The lunch special is a filet mignon po-boy!"

Ron is a great guy, but sometimes we wonder about him.
