Director of MDO Xtreme & Parish Operations

Lindsey Peevey grew up in Jacksboro before attending Midwestern State University and receiving her B.S. in Elementary Education. Her and her husband returned to Jacksboro a couple of years ago to raise their daughter with the same small town values Lindsey experienced in our community.

Lindsey pursued a lifelong desire to teach and impact children's lives by working at a five star state accredited childcare center while in college and after graduation. During her eight years of employment with that center, she taught all age groups of young children before accepting the position of Assistant Director.

Upon relocating back, Lindsey accepted the position of teaching the older toddlers in our MDO program. The following year, she was appointed as the MDO Xtreme Director, before also accepting the position of Director of Parish Operations.

Lindsey is passionate about her family, her relationship with God and cultivating relationships with the teenagers in her Youth Group at her church. Lindsey and her husband accepted the position of Youth Directors for their church after moving back to Jacksboro. They are invested in helping the teens develop their relationship with God and encouraging them to follow their dreams and succeed in life.

Lindsey is also very passionate about making her daughter's childhood one of wonderful memories, family interaction, and well-rounded teachings, along with a desire for God, exploration, and curiosity of the world around her. These desires, as well as Lindsey’s past experiences carry over into the opportunities she strives to offer in our MDO Xtreme program.
