Lauren Warren, Director of Children’s Ministry

Lauren Warren is a lifelong member of First Christian Church of Longview and became the Director of Children’s Ministry on April 15, 2019. She earned her Associate Degree of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assisting from Panola College in December 2011 and has since worked as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant in pediatric settings including outpatient clinic, public school, and home health.

Her two passions are music and working with children, and she returned to school in August 2015 to pursue a Bachelor of Music Education. She earned her Associate of Arts degree at Kilgore College in 2017 and will graduate with her bachelor’s from East Texas Baptist University in May 2020.

 As a child and teen, Lauren participated in First Christian’s children’s and youth ministry programs as well as Day Camp (FCC’s unique VBS), and camps at Disciples Crossing in Athens. She is excited to help these programs grow and knows that God has placed a call on her heart to help lead the children of her congregation to Jesus.

Lauren is married to Herbert and they live happily with their beloved tuxedo cat, Kitty.
