kathy-familyIf there’s something about Shiloh you want to know, Kathy Shea’s the person to ask. She has been a member since she was 12, and she and her husband, Jim, raised their four boys in the church.

Kathy’s our Children’s Ministry Director, which means she runs Vacation Bible School and helps direct our well-known children’s Christmas play. She’s doing a lot of work at our Price Hill campus these days.

One of Kathy’s favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” In fact, she has it written on her motorcycle helmet.
