Elizabeth Boulware Landes,
Associate Pastor of Children and Youth Ministry  

Elizabeth is the Associate Pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church.


Elizabeth attended Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas. It was here that she began to hear a call into ministry. After graduating from Schreiner, Elizabeth moved across the country to attend Union Presbyterian Seminary. It was here that Elizabeth heard the call unfold. Elizabeth graduated with a Masters of Divinity along with a Masters of Arts in Christian Education. For as long as she can remember she has been involved with educational ministry.

The church is called to share the stories of faith to new believers, whether they be children, youth, or adults, and we answer the call through opportunities for growth through worship, Sunday school, Bible studies, and special events. It is a joy to be able to partake in educational ministry at Faith Presbyterian Church.

Elizabeth has been apart of FAITH since 2014, along with her husband, Nick and their two boys, Liam and Lincoln.
