About Elaine

I am passionate about teaching kids about God, so my background in education and children’s ministry have served me well.  I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Studies and a Master of Arts in School Administration. I have spent my career in both public and private schools (as a teacher and school administrator) and as a children’s pastor.

I currently  serve as Pastor to Children at First Christian Church in Lawrence, Kansas. In this role, my background in education and my passion for teaching kids about God work together. I also work part time as a consultant for Ministry Architects, where I have the opportunity to work with other children’s ministries around the country.

Part of my calling is to help parents.  I equip parents with practical tools that enable them teach their children how to live as Christians.  I want parents to feel encouraged and prepared as they discuss various issues of the Christian faith (e.g., how to pray, deal with grief, believe in a God we can’t see).

*I am the proud mom to Hayden (13) and Julia (10), a dog named Lego, two cats (Princess and Ariel), and a hamster (Juliet).  My husband, David W. Pendergrass (PhD, Historical Theology), helps inform my biblical and theological background and I am grateful for his guidance and insight.
