Amos Shelley - Kids' Ministry
Amos grew up in Simcoe, five minutes north of Lake Erie, as the middle child of seven—stuck between four boys and two girls—all named for Biblical characters. He and his wife Faith, live in Chesley with their daughter Eden, and son Judah. Amos has an acute passion for the well-being of children, specifically their spiritual growth, identity, and imaginations. He is creative and artistically minded while being theologically balanced and relationally driven. His favourite Bible character is the apostle John. He likes how he is both thoughtful and poetic, articulating the gospel so beautifully. Amos likes to spend lazy afternoons browsing through thrift shops or hanging out with family as a delicious meal is being prepared. He has a weakness for both coffee and chocolate, the combination of which has proven to be lethal! He loves to play, draw, and create, and looks forward to entering into the Biblical story as an active participant and becoming a mature disciple of Jesus Christ.
