Lauren Pressley lives in and is a native of Eatonton with her husband Elvis Pressley, Jr. and children; Dalton, Adley, and Kade. She became a member of Crossroads Baptist Church in 2006. In 2018, Lauren was called as Children’s Director due to growth within the ministry. Lauren has a passion for the children here at Crossroads and works closely with our volunteers to coordinate their curriculum and activities to help them learn about and grow in their walks with Jesus.
It is such a blessing to be involved with a church that truly cares about people, and not just the people who are members of the church. We were originally drawn to Crossroads by the Christ-like spirit we could feel when we first walked through the doors.
I am the husband of a beautiful, caring wife and father of two, incredible (my opinion , of course) boys. I experienced the salvation of Jesus at a young age when a choir in Denver sang the song He Could Have Called 10,000 Angels. This may possibly be the reason for my enjoying involvement with music.
I became involved in the full time ministry as a Youth/Music director at Heatherridge Baptist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We had a great pastor there who was also a very gifted music director. While on staff, I completed a degree in K-8 education in Oklahoma, along with enough music classes to have a minor in music. This was also the church where Donna came into my life. After marriage and the arrival of our first child, we moved to Georgia to be close to Donna’s family. We had our second child shortly thereafter. I’ve been working at Gatewood School in Eatonton since 1999 and, about 2 years ago, went on staff here at Crossroads as the Praise Team Director. It is truly a blessing working with the staff here.
