About Elena

Elena has served COTH as the Children’s Ministry Director for Kids on the Hill (KOTH) since August 2021. The Watson family is a Georgia transplant from the Nashville area. She is passionate about sharing the Gospel with children, fostering community among families, and welcoming the Holy Spirit as He leads us into all truth. 

KOTH yearns for children and volunteers to develop their first-hand experience with The Word of God and the nature of our Heavenly Father. Elena desires to see children to encounter Jesus in a personal way and to trust and follow Him all the days of their lives. 

Before her work with KOTH, Elena graduated from MTSU in 2011 with a degree in elementary education. She worked as a substitute and classroom teacher until 2015, when she began her journey as a SAHM. She has taught the Bible to various groups and ages since the age of 18. 

She loves hiking with her husband and two kids, quilting, quality time with friends, and documentaries.
