Shelly is the Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer for World Gospel Mission.
Shelly’s role as CFO may, at first glance, appear to be all about numbers, budgets, and charts. However, she serves World Gospel Mission with a deep sense of calling and a desire for the world to know that Jesus came for them. “I can’t imagine living without the peace of Jesus in my heart. I love being a part of bringing hope and peace to hurting people!” Before joining WGM over 21 years ago, Shelly was a corporate tax auditor for the Indiana Department of Revenue.
Shelly has particularly enjoyed traveling to WGM’s fields of service – from Honduras to Kenya to Northern Ireland and beyond. In addition to helping with field finances and audits, she has gotten to lay bricks, hold babies, minister to women with HIV, run electrical conduit, speak to police wives at a police and military retreat, and much more.
Shelly and her husband, Kirk, are deeply invested in their community in Gas City, Indiana, where Kirk recently retired as police chief. They are the parents of Todd and Katelin and proud grandparents of Daylin and Dace. Shelly is an avid Green Bay Packers fan and enjoys hunting for treasures at rummage sales.
