  Rev. Shannon Sullivan

Senior Pastor

Pastor Shannon is  a life-long United Methodist and second generation clergywoman. She experienced the love of God through Sunday school teachers, in Vacation Bible School, and on mission trips to Bosnia and Herzegovina as a teenager. She took over teaching parts of VBS as a middle schooler, and her mom said she knew she had a call to ministry then but she didn’t! Pastor Shannon went to college thinking she would become a missionary, that would serve God in some way working for social justice or in caring or teaching ministries. She wanted a job like her mom’s, but she never wanted to be a pastor! Pastor Shannon had her first faith crisis in college when life did not go as planned, and emerging from that hurt is when she first heard her call to ministry.

Wendy Huff
 
Passionate Youth Minister,
Christ follower, mother of three teenagers, singer, dancer,
music fanatic, story teller,
and beach comber

Wendy grew up in the United Methodist Church, quite literally.  Her father was a United Methodist minister for 20 years, and her grandfather became a local pastor after he retired from the business world.  Wendy enjoyed growing up as a “PK” or preacher’s kid.  Mischief aside, she found that growing up in the ministry provided her an opportunity to meet many new people and to build relationships in faith communities throughout the Baltimore Washington Conference.
