Director of Spiritual Engagement & Campus Minister
Lauren Jewett (she/her)
Lauren Jewett joined CA House as the Program Coordinator in Fall 2021 and now serves as the Director of Spiritual Engagement and Campus Minister. Lauren brings her experience of facilitating immersive community service work and comprehensive sexuality education with a focus on empowerment and coaching to her programmatic and spiritual care work at CA House.
A 2018 Dean’s Scholar and Master of Divinity graduate of Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA where she was awarded the Beloved Community Award for her contributions to creating a vibrant and transformational PSR Community, Lauren’s greatest passion is to facilitate and co-create brave spaces where young people are invited to show up as their full selves, with permission to continue to discover and be curious about who they are and what they think, believe, and feel about the world around them. She recently completed a 9 month residency as a Chaplain at the UC Davis Medical Center, providing spiritual care and support to patients and staff during the peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lauren is a Member In Discernment with the Northern California Nevada Conference of the UCC and a member of Parkside Community Church, in Sacramento, seeking ordination to do work at the intersection of church and community.
A farmgirl at heart, when not working or pursuing steps towards ordination, Lauren can be found outside on the water or in the mountains, paddleboarding, hammocking, traveling the world, gardening, playing with her dog, or, if inside: writing letters, reading a good book or working on her blog of inclusive and diverse youth literature recommendations.
