Reaching the Unreached and Giving Hope to the Vulnerable
On a Global Level
Partnering with ministries and missionaries who are caring for orphans and reaching out to those unreached with the gospel.
On a Local Level
Supporting Foster Families/Children and reaching out our door to our neighbors.
Love Works is the Outreach arm of Fellowship Bible Church, Searcy. We exist to help those in need. We exist to make sure our church body is aware of the needs in our community and our world. Our belief is that if Christ were walking amongst us today, this is what He would be doing. He came to preach love and compassion to all in need. The heart of His message was love, because...well, honestly... love works.

Shannon graduated from Michigan State University with her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education/Child Development/Language Arts. After graduating college, she spent the next year with a mission agency called Pioneers, living and ministering in Northern India to an unreached high caste Hindu group. Upon returning from India, she spent the next two years teaching Kindergarten and Preschool in the Detroit area. In 2008, Shannon moved to Arkansas to work for a mission mobilizing ministry called The Traveling Team as their follow-up coordinator and scheduler. Shannon's passion is to see God's remarkable love and grace extended to the areas of the world where He is not yet known or glorified.
Shannon met her husband in Conway, Arkansas while they were both involved with I.F.O., a ministry that focuses on reaching out to international students. After dating for two years, Shannon and Tim married in October 2010. Shannon moved to Searcy where Tim had been working as a physical therapist. In November 2012 they welcomed their first child Mia into the world. Two years later they went from being a family of three to four as their son Landon was born!
In her spare time, Shannon enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, working out, cheering for Michigan State and Kentucky, cooking, reading, playing games, hiking, and watching a little too much HGTV.
