Meet the Staff of Central Coast

Becca Lamont, Local Director

Becca came on board as our Local Director in July 2019 after a decade of teaching history in the public schools. Originally from Philadelphia and Minneapolis, Becca graduated with a BA in Sociology and Psychology from Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA. She went on to get her MA in Teaching at Bethel University in St Paul, MN. She served for three years in Bolivia, South America as a missionary teacher. She moved to Salinas in 2015 and does not plan on leaving anytime soon, since this is the first time in her life that she hasn’t been landlocked! She is an active member at Cypress Community Church in Salinas, serving on their worship team and as a youth leader.
