Beth Krausse - Kids' Place! Pastor
What’s your story?
I’m a 3rd generation Pasadenian (haven’t moved far!). I got my “Ph.D. in parenting” by being a stay-at-home mom to 4 kids until I became the Children’s Pastor at CVCHURCH 21 years ago. I love Kids' Place! and seeing kids grow closer to Jesus. When kids know God's’ love for them, they can be confident in life's challenges, when they grow up.
I married Peter at 19, and we’re still together 38 years later! I home-schooled our four kids until 3rd grade. David (High School Science Teacher) is married to (Dr.) Andrea (Psychologist), and they have 2 wonderful kids (what fun it is to be a grandma!),. Susanne is a freelance Artist, Joy (High School Math teacher) is married to Tim Coe (Target Manager) . They have a son, who is another of my wonderful grandchildren! James (sound engineer) is married to Dani (CPA). It’s a wonderful busy family.
Sports or arts?
I think being a Grandma is a sport. I run after them all day! LOVE IT! Pete & I love to hike in the local hills with our dogs and have discovered that we really enjoy each other’s company!
