Kristen Elrod

Kristen became a member at  First Baptist Sweetwater after moving here with her family in 2015. Since joining, Kristen has been active in children’s ministry; teaching the three year old Sunday School class, serving in Kingdom Kids,preschool extended session and VBS.


Kristen became a follower of Christ in her early teens. She knew from that time that she would be serving the Lord by serving children and has been involved in children’s ministry for  20 years both in Sunday School, missions education and Christian pre-school/daycare. She received her childcare staff credential certificate from South Florida Community College and is currently working toward her diploma in Children’s Ministry. Kristen has been a homeschool mom for over 17 years and passionately believes that no child is too young to learn and experience God’s love.


Kristen and her husband, Jonathan, met through the sports program at Heartland Christian School in Sebring. They have been married for 18 years and have seven children, Jonny, Logan, Anastasia, Somer, Asher, Caden and Ezra. Kristen enjoys spending time with Jonathan, her family and reading.


Her favorite verse is John 15:14 “Those who love Me obey my commands.”  It was this verse that God used to show her to love Him with her obedience.
