Leadership Team


Pastor Pamela Ditson-McCall, Lead Minister

     I have loved Jesus all my life, even the years I wasn’t sure I loved myself. Yet, as I look back in the rear-view mirror of my life’s journey, Jesus has been in the backseat with loving words of encouragement and sometimes loving disapproval, when I swerved off the Gospel path. 
     For 32 years, I have been serving the church by caring, loving, and teaching God’s beloved people. My prayer is that along the way I have helped those who have found themselves heading down a dangerous road of destruction.
     The Christian Church – Disciples of Christ has always been by church home. I attended Phillips Theological Seminary where I received my MDiv and was ordained in my home church, in North Platte, NE. Although I value my education, it has been the times while serving God’s people by sitting with them, in times of joy and sorrow, that I have learned the love of God revealed to us in Jesus Christ; the times where I have had the honor and joy of witnessing lives transformed by His grace and mercy.
     Here at First Christian- Disciples of Christ in Frankfort, Indiana we welcome all to come and experience Jesus with a diverse group of sinners journeying together, navigating these confusing and challenging times, and living the Gospel way…LOVE.

Jentry Pendleton, Youth Director

     As I started as Youth Director in the fall of 2012. My mission is to make sure all youth of every age know the love and saving grace of our Lord by focusing on the teachings of Jesus. Our Youth Group meetings address real life issues and how to apply Biblical principles when face with difficult situations.
     We believe in the life changing words of the Bible and how it can show us the way to live. 1 Timothy 4:12 reminds us that even as young people we are to set an example of how to in the ways that Jesus taught us.




Dorothy (Dottie) Pilley, Music Coordinator

     My love of music began as a child in Wilkes-Barre, PA., as a member of Band, Choir, and Orchestra. I then moved to Knoxville, TN and received a Bachelor of Sacred Music Degree in 1962 from Johnson Bible College.

     I have been on Staff of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) since August, 1983, as Handbell Choir Director, Organist, in the early years organized and directed a children’s choir, and ultimately, also, as Chancel Choir Director.




And above all that, Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, who

offers saving grace to all who seek it through the Son.
