Meet Shannon – Pilgrim’s new Director of Family + Youth Ministries!

I grew up in Peshtigo, a small town in northeast Wisconsin. Surrounded by lots of family, my big brother and I were encouraged to learn about faith in a variety of ways – church, camp, and retreats like “Quake” and “Zone.”

When I was in high school I moved to Tacoma and was active at Lincoln High School as a band member, honors student, and Achievers Scholar through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. My family and I were members of St. Mark’s by the Narrows, where I was the youth rep to the council, on the youth committee, active in playing the bells, drama productions, VBS, and more. I also served on the SWWA ALYVE Board for 2 1/2 years. After graduation, I was blessed to work at Camp Lutherwood in Bellingham, WA for 2 years.

I graduated from Trinity Lutheran College in Everett, WA in 2012 with my Bachelors in Children, Youth and Family Studies. It was there that I realized that I not only enjoy working with youth, but that I like being able to have faith conversations and help others see God at work in their daily lives.

The last 6 years, I have been working at churches in WI. I have been learning more about my own faith, growing in my leadership abilities, practicing contextual ministry, walking alongside families and teens, and building a network of support, friends, and mentors from around the country.

I am excited to be at Pilgrim Lutheran! I have felt from my first visit to the church—and throughout my first weekend—that I’ve come home. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us all as we start this new chapter together.

Grace & Peace,
Shannon
