The Chambers County Children’s Museum is excited to move full speed ahead with the organization’s first hire, an Executive Director. Melody Kraus is a former Pastor, most recently serving as Senior Pastor of First United Methodist Church Mont Belvieu. She is highly regarded in the United Methodist Church system where she has served for the past 15 years in Associate Pastor and Senior Pastor roles.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Founding Executive Director of the Chambers County Children’s Museum. The population of Chambers County has increased by more than 25% in the last decade bringing in many new young families. It is exciting to be part of an innovative organization that is poised to serve and inspire the children and families of our growing community. I look forward to being part of the effort to bring this project to fruition.” Melody Kraus

The organization’s President, Macy Middleton, shared sentiments. “The Board of Directors and I are thrilled Melody is joining our team. She excels in leadership and community service and is passionate about serving the kids and young families of our great county.”
