Josette Langevine grew up in Brooklyn, New York. She moved to the Bay Area to earn her B.A. in Political Science and then her M.A. in Communication Studies at Stanford University. She now calls the Bay Area her home.
Josette's faith journey began at the age of 8 years, after growing up in a Christian home and experiencing the love of God in a profound way. At Stanford, she became a leader and eventually the campus president for Campus Crusade for Christ. Her heart for the Lord has remained steadfast through life's challenges, and she yearns to share that love of the Lord with all.
Josette worked in private wealth management and has experience working with operations in business development before coming to New Beginnings Community Church. She developed an interest in children and student advocacy after being a Residential Advisor for her dorm at Stanford. She was also Residential Advisor for the high school summer program at Stanford after her senior year of college. Josette’s love for students further grew as she began organizing several Stanford Community Carnivals for students in the East Palo Alto school districts. She was also on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board (BPAC) for the Mountain View City Council, where she promoted alternative uses of transportation and also worked with schools to encourage students to bike and walk using safe means. After her 4 years of services on the BPAC, she became Commissioner for the Human Relations Commission for the Mountain View City Council, where she reviewed proposals to promote diversity and successful relations within the community.
She feels God's calling to work more closely with students and is thrilled to be welcomed into the NBCC family. When she’s not working, Josette enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, singing and playing with her dog, Ethel.
