Jeanette Staats has been on staff since 2000. She received her bachelor’s degree in English from Virginia Tech in 2000 after dabbling in Accounting and Interior Design – three majors that obviously have a lot of commonalities & overlap!
Her role at NLCF is called Director of Community Life. She spends time co-overseeing the campus Engage Groups as part of the Spiritual Formations team, developing & leading New Life Kids! (kids ministry), and overseeing church-wide events as well as other various administrative tasks.
In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with family and friends, teaching piano, organizing & decorating her home, being crafty, and watching HOKIE sports! She is a foster parent when the need arises. She is also pursuing a Certificate of Theological Studies from a satellite seminary.
Her desire is to love God, love the people He places in her life, and live. “The world is full of people who will go their whole lives and not actually live one day. She did not intend on being one of them.” (quote from curlygirl designs)
