St. Paul welcomes new pastor of children and family life
How can we make the Bible fun, and get its impact to stick? These are the two questions Pastor Kendra Thompson asks herself when planning programming for children and families. She will begin at St. Paul in mid-August as the pastor of children and family life.
Kendra grew up in Missouri, Colorado, Texas and Utah. She earned degrees from the University of Utah, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and her M.Div. equivalent for ordination from Philips School of Theology. Before arriving at St. Paul, Kendra served a variety of churches in a variety of capacities. The common thread has involved learning and working with young people.
Kendra is wife to John, on faculty at St. Ambrose University, mom to Joe, 4, and Andi, 2, and an avid writer. Some of her work can be found online at Think Christian, Tiny Faith, and Cry, Laugh, Snort.
