Jade Mogavero is originally from Staten Island, New York, and spent much of her late adolescent life traveling in and out of the country. She received her B.A in English and her B.A in Philosophy at the University of New Paltz with an academic concentration in creative writing. Throughout her undergraduate years, Jade found a deep love for poetry and spoken word. Upon graduation, Jade and her fiancé, packed their things and drove across the country to Orange County, California.
Within a few short weeks of her arrival in San Clemente, the Lord pursued her heart, and she gave her life to Christ. She believes that the manner in which God led her to His saving grace, through the use of countless individuals as His chosen instruments, is how we ought to serve God here on earth. For Jesus said, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house" (Matthew 5:14-15.) We serve Christ by actively being the light that points to Him for all who are in the darkness.
In May of 2023, Jade and her fiancé will be getting married, in which shortly afterwards they will be journeying to Lausanne, Switzerland, for their first mission trip. They are overjoyed to dedicate their first season as a married union to going out and serving God full time and unhindered.
Jade is thrilled to join the CVCS team and begin this next season of her life as a Christian educator. She feels blessed with the opportunity to integrate both her love for literature and her love for Christ. Jade firmly believes that "death and life are in the power of the tongue," (Proverbs 18:21) and that such power begins in the classroom. She cannot wait to see the great things that God will do.
On her leisure time, you can find Jade reading on the beach with her fiancé, listening to records, going for a hike or a long walk, visiting a new coffee shop, collecting antiques, writing a poem, or driving across the country!
