Worship arts team assistant

Janice Bastin

Janice grew up in west Texas and surrendered to full time ministry at age 19.  She joined CrossPoint when she came to southern California to teach piano and music classes at Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College where she also earned her music degree.

She served at several churches before moving to California, performing both musical and financial administration duties.  Her first love has always been playing the piano, and besides her church work, she maintains an active teaching studio in Orange County, with students from age five through college and adult.  She enjoys the one on one interaction with her students and sees it as an evangelistic outreach opportunity toward her diverse clientele.  She is also highly active in the Music Teachers’ Association of California, serving on the board of her local branch, and leading and organizing the annual theory and performance evaluation and certification events.

In her musical duties at CrossPoint, she is the regular pianist/accompanist and supports and assists the worship pastor in the musical worship services, music preparation and planning, accompanying, arranging, and organizing the worship teams.

Janice is married to Paul, who also participates on the musical worship teams.

Janice’s favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”  She cherishes the time spent serving and ministering in music in her local church.
