Shannon has always loved working with children even as a young child. She began at 10 years of age volunteering for Franklin County Board of DD and continued with them until college began. This passion grew into her adulthood and she began teaching young children and working with their families about 12 years ago. She always felt like this was something she was meant to do, but just felt like she was meant to do more and she began to pray on this. She followed God’s calling and is now using her gifts to serve as Director of Children and Family Ministries here at Grove City UMC Purple Door. Shannon is married to Greg and they have four children.
