Shannon E. Greene

I have a heart for teens and young adults, a hope to renew the Church as the Bride of Christ, and a longing to see God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. I write about youth and young adults ministry, Wesleyan theology, women in ministry, and the intersection of life and faith.

My Call

As a pastor, I have worked in a variety of youth and young adult ministry roles. I now serve as the Senior Pastor at First United Methodist Church in Excelsior Springs, MO.

My Family

I’m married to Randy Greene, a fellow author and theologian. We have a Corgi-Chihuahua mix named Oscar and a terrier mix named Jack who constantly make us smile.

My Location

We live in a beautiful, old house in the Waldo Neighborhood of Kansas City, MO. We grew up in St. Louis, though, and will always be Cardinals fans.
