About Jonathan and Alena Pitts and Chrystal Evans Hurst:

Jonathan Pitts is an author, speaker, and the executive pastor at Church of the City in Franklin, Tennessee. He previously served as the executive director at the Urban Alternative, the national ministry of Dr. Tony Evans.  Jonathan has co-authored two books alongside his late wife, Wynter Pitts.  He is also president and co-founder of For Girls Like You Ministries, an equipping and resourcing ministry for tween girls and their parents.  Jonathan is the father of four daughters and was blessed with fifteen intentional years of marriage to Wynter.

Alena Pitts is a 14-year-old actress, author and vocalist. The Kendrick Brothers’ WAR ROOM marked Alena’s professional acting debut, with Alena being cast in the major supporting role as Danielle Jordan.  The movie was a box-office hit in 2015, becoming the 6th highest grossing Christian film in box office history.  The film immediately launched Alena headfirst into the spotlight at the age of 11. Shortly after, Alena started on a new journey and co-authored a three-book fictional series aptly titled, Lena In The Spotlight (Zonderkids, 2017).  The books are written with her mother, Wynter Pitts, author and founder of For Girls Like You Magazine.

 Alena remains very grounded and values her relationship with Jesus Christ as her highest priority, followed by her commitment to her family including three sisters, Kaitlyn (12) and twins Camryn and Olivia (9).  She and her family reside in Franklin, TN.
