Lauren serves as our Ministry Coordinator. She support and oversees our Sunday Morning Team, helps connect newcomers into the life of our church, and foster greater discipleship and ministry for King’s Cross.
Lauren grew up in a home where she heard Jesus proclaimed and she was captured at a young age by the truth of His mercy and love for her.
She met her husband, Cuyler, at Sterling College where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Theology and Biblical studies and together they have four great kids—Ellie, Judah, Nora, and Jenna.
Lauren is currently working on her Masters in Applied Theology at William Tennent School of Theology, eager to love the Lord more with her heart and mind and to love her neighbors deeply.
Jess serves as our Children’s Ministry Director. She oversees our CM volunteers and teaching our King’s Cross kids how to follow Jesus.
Jessica Earle grew up in a home with a mother who leaned deeply into the Lord's provision through lots of circumstantial difficulties. Her influence set the stage for God to soften Jessica's heart and allow the Lord to mold her into a helper for those with "smaller" voices.
Jessica is married to high school sweetheart, Austin Earle, and together they have a 5 year old (Exum), a 2 year old (Ellison), and another boy due to arrive July 5th. Her love for kids began long before she had children but her passion to see them succeed spiritually and emotionally took root after having her first. She has worked in multiple children's church settings and has spent time as a lead teacher in a daycare.
She is excited to take an already thriving children's program and allow the Lord to work in and through it as King's Cross Kids continues to grow.
Alison serves as our Administrative Coordinator. She helps with event planning, development projects, and other administrative support for the church.
