Peggy has been a pastor’s wife since 1974 when she and Chris Osborne married. After serving in Oakwood, New Baden and Midland, Texas, they served together at Central Baptist Church in College Station, Texas for 33 years.
They have had the privilege of sharing with countless families and college students who have attended Texas A&M University and Blinn College.
In January of 2020, they stepped down from the pastorate but not from ministry! Peggy and Chris have moved to Fort Worth where Chris is teaching as a full time professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
With this move, Peggy has the opportunity to continue to support and mentor students’ wives and other women attending the school. She says that it is a privilege to see the next generation standing strong in Christ!
Peggy has been in the field of education for over 25 years. She spent fourteen years in the elementary classroom teaching pre-k, kindergarten, second and fourth grades. From 1998 through 2010 she was an administrator within the College Station Independent School District’s Early Childhood Department in College Station, TX. Since December of 2010, she and her daughter, Lauren, have been consulting with Faith Based Schools and childcares, school districts and Head Starts all across the state.
In addition to consulting work, Peggy has enjoyed speaking at MOPS groups, women’s events such as “Advent By Candlelight” and women’s retreats. She enjoyed many years of teaching a women’s Sunday School class and various studies in her church setting. She especially enjoys getting to speak alongside Lauren as a Mother/Daughter team!
Lauren has a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M University and earned her Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Texas at Arlington.
She taught school in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for eight years and has been consulting with and speaking for churches, school districts, childcare groups and parents since 2005.
God has given Lauren a deep desire to support, encourage and love women. She wants them to use their divine gifts and talents to further the kingdom. She longs for women to live in the freedom that comes with believing and obeying God fully.
Lauren is also an excellent resource for parents and teachers as she invested in public school children for six years and in a private school setting for two years while in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. She has gotten the opportunity to “practice what she preaches” on a daily basis in her home with Wesley, who was born in 2011. As a single mom, she has a unique perspective on the importance of intentionally training a child in biblical principles. They are living north of Houston in The Woodlands.
She is a zealous speaker at women’s events, retreats, parenting seminars and children’s leadership events. She wholeheartedly believes that scripture is the inspired Word of God and believes in speaking that Truth everywhere she goes.
