Church Staff

Jeneille Lagrone

Senior Minister

A pastor, preacher, Biblical teacher, encourager, equipper, and fellow learner as well as a wife, mom and friend; Jeneille has served as Senior Minister of First Christian Church since 2018. She guides and equips our church to realize God’s gifts in our lives and how best to use them to honor God. 


In 20 years of ministry, Jeneille has served as senior pastor, worship minister, and minister to youth and young adults. Her motivation in ministry is to move people toward glorifying God with their whole self - to  know Jesus’ love, to daily live their faith, and to share their authentic stories of God’s goodness. 


She and her husband Chad have been life-long friends and married for 14 years. They have 3 kids who are each different, quirky, and offer an amazing peek into who God is. She holds two degrees from Texas Christian University and loves her TCU Horned Frogs, reading books and listening to podcasts, singing and playing her guitar.
