Christy Penley

Christy Penley: 5 Lessons I've Learned in 20 Years of Ministry

Who is Christy Penley? Daughter of the King, wife to Paul, mum of 6, pastor at heart and at Pulpit Rock Church (Colorado), lover of college football, chai, and the mountains. She has spent her professional career teaching the Bible to kids, students and adults and currently getting her DMin at Denver Seminary.

Paul and I have been married for almost 20 years and have 5 amazing children Soren (14), Kyra (12), Bri (12), Langham (10) and London (9).  We also have Alexander (23) who does not share our last name but who has our heart.  We have journeyed through foster care and adoption and our hearts and lives have been forever changed.  I’ve spent my professional career teaching the Bible to kids, youth and adults in both school and church settings.  I received my Masters in Education with an emphasis in Bible Teaching from Columbia International University.  I am currently working on my DMin at Denver Seminary.  When I’m not driving my kids to soccer practice or folding laundry you can find me hanging out in local coffee shops, chalk painting a piece of furniture or watching college football.  

Reflection questions for further engagement:

-How did God open your eyes through scripture and what is he inviting you into?
-What are you wrestling with?
-What new name or blessing do you need to be reminded of today?
