We would like to welcome Debra Sheller to the Park Hill Christian Church staff. Below is a little bit about her.
It would be easy to say, “Hello my name is.....and I have spent my life as a church administrator. However, that is not how my story goes.
I have lived in 5 states and in my circle of friends, I hold the record for the most moves to KCMO with a total of 3. My first move to this area was with my parents and 3 brothers in 1968. I attended Park Hill High School where I met my husband, Bob. My family left for California my senior year and guess who soon followed? Yes, my high school sweetheart. We married and decided to raise our family in Kansas City, move #2.
We spent the next 30+ years focused on raising our sons and serving the Lord. During this time I also began my career as a “Jack of all Trades” – you name it, I may have done it. Floral designer, receptionist, insurance agent, wedding coordinator, boutique owner, event planner, activity director and the list goes on and on!
As empty nesters, my husband and I decided on an adventure and moved to Montana. We lived in a cabin on the Blackfoot Indian Reservation. As we viewed the Rocky Mountains and the entrance to Glacier National Park, I connected with my family roots and experienced what is truly God’s country. Missing our children and grandchildren, brought us back to Kansas City – Move #3.
Though life has not always gone as planned, my one constant has been my relationship with the Lord. He has guided me through many storms and great adventures. How blessed are we to be able to lay down our fears and concerns, and know that God is there for us.
I have enjoyed many hobbies, but one stands......going on adventures! I love day trips or just getting in the car and traveling the backroads to see where they lead. While working at the retirement community, I loved planning mystery trips for the residents. My grandchildren love birthday adventures, they have no idea where they are going, but they know it is special and just for them.
As for my “Jack of all Trades” career, I would not trade my life experiences for anything. I have been blessed with so many opportunities and friends along the way. As I look toward the future, I plan to share my faith and careers in a Blog called, “The Enterprising Journey”.
I am looking forward to my position as Ministry Support Administrator. I believe God has given everyone of us gifts and talents, and I hope to be a resource and support to each of you on your journey.
Hello, my name is Debbie and I am so happy to meet you!
