Pastor Shelly comes from a rich heritage of Christian faith, yet at the age of 18 she had a life-altering encounter with the Lord that set her on her own path of deep relationship with the Lord. As a result, she is passionate about bringing people to their own personal encounters with Him, whether through worship, preaching, teaching, serving, or any other means, knowing that it’s the powerful, unchanging love of God that truly transforms lives. In times when people are looking for signs and wonders, she recognizes that a transformed life is often the greatest miracle of all. Her passion to see people live in freedom, righteousness, joy, hope, and love compels her to stretch and push through barriers and obstacles, and to reach into culture and society to bring connection and Kingdom principles. She finds joy in her family, and loves to travel, shop, and see what adventures God has in store!
