Our Staff

Our goal is to provide Prince of Peace Preschool with outstanding, high-quality staff to nurture, support, and instruct our students in academic and spiritual qualities to prepare them for the future.

 

Pastor Nathan Janssen

Pastor Janssen assists in discipline, when needed, and is available for counseling families during crises.  As Pastor at Prince of Peace since 1989, he is well known by many in the community as a result of his organization of the Salvation Army Kettle campaign, and the over 1,500 students who have attended Prince of Peace School or Precious Playmates Daycare since 1995.   You might also see him around town as his family is also very active in the music departments and sports teams in the Martinsville School District. 

 

 

Mrs Denise Lester, Teacher

deniseI am Denise Lester; lover of Jesus, my husband, two children, Colts football, coffee and of course my job as Prince of Peace preschool teacher!!

I grew up in Indiana and graduated from Cincinnati Christian University. Prince of Peace has been my home since 2011, but my work with children spans two decades. (Aaaaaaa, that makes me sound really old!)

I love to watch the growth that occurs during these formative years. I believe preschool and prekindergarten are truly important in building a child’s educational foundation. Hearing the words, “I did it, teacher!” brings a smile to my face, and pure joy to my heart!

Sharing the love of God, and His completed work on the cross, is definitely a passion of mine. I feel honored and blessed to be able to minister to our Prince of Peace families!
