About Deedee Eldridge

Pastor Deedee was raised in a Roman Catholic home and came to Christ at a charismatic Methodist church in 1980. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1982 with a degree in Dramatic Art. During her time there she participated in one-on-one discipleship and lead an "Agape Group" home fellowship though Campus Ambassadors. Upon graduation she attended Bethany College to pursue her love for the Word in a formal way. She and Pastor Don married in January of 1983 and began traveling together in itinerate ministry in 1985.

Her current ministry includes (after being a first-rate "helper suitable" – Gen. 2:18 - to Pastor Don), being a home-educating mom to our 2 youngest children, (our 2 eldest, were home-educated their entire lives and are now in college.) She is also an anointed teacher of the Word at VLC, and is a much sought-after speaker at home-education conferences, and many other large and small venues.

Pastor Deedee also owns and runs her own theatre company, "THE Actors' Workshop and Integral Theatre Company"; a unique teaching theatre company that coaches, tutors and instructs junior and senior high school students the entire craft of live theatre, (not just acting), who perform 2 shows per year (January and May) professional quality productions with a spirit of excellence like no other of its kind in the region. The company also produces 2 community theatre productions, in July and October (performed by auditioned actors from within the region). The theatre company has its own web site, www.actorsworkshop.net, and is currently grateful for the use of VLC's building for performances until the opportunity avails itself for the theatre to have a building of its own. Pastor Deedee is also a playwright and is in the process of getting some of her works professionally published.

Pastor's Don and Deedee have the joy of being parents to 4 children who have a great love for the Lord and are each growing in their relationship with Him and following the destiny He has for them – one day at a time.

Pastor Deedee is ordained through Faith Christian Fellowship, an international ministry based in Tulsa Oklahoma.
