Lauren Welch

Lauren was born in Kingwood, TX and has been married to her husband, Josh, for 11 years. Josh is an active duty Marine, and as a result of military moves, their family has been a part of 3 Pillar Church campuses, Pillar Dumfries (2010-2011), Pillar Jacksonville (2014-2016), and Pillar Oceanside! They have 3 children, Christin, Tieryn, and Coltin. Lauren is a Development Manager at Urban Corps of San Diego County, and has a B.S. In Sports, Event and Entertainment Management and Masters in Human Services Counseling.

As the ministry lead for the Welcome Team Lauren shares, “I LOVE the welcoming team and what it means to the church. The Welcome Team could bring people into the Pillar Family and show them what it means to be a church family, or could help in someone not returning. It is such a crucial area of ministry to the lives of those in the church, and I am proud to be a part of it.” Her favorite Bible verse is James 1:19-20, “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”
