Speaking & Teaching

Dr. Julie Shannon’s 15 years of experience in church lay leadership, teaching, and speaking includes workshops, retreats, classes, sermons, and large group presentations. She utilizes writing, teaching, speaking, and coaching to encourage others in the defining steps of life realities. Experiences in infertility, childlessness, singleness and other challenges inspire her to share solutions and stories to equip others to have and to offer hope, community, and a new perspective on life.

Julie earned an undergraduate degree in Radio/TV Communication from Stephen F. Austin State University, a Master in Christian Education degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Educational Ministry degree from DTS as well. She is a Tri Delta alum, former board member of a community nonprofit, and currently serves on the board of the Association for Women in Ministry Professions in a marketing capacity. She is a contributor to the book Invitation to Educational Ministry: Foundations of Transformative Christian Education by George M. Hillman Jr. and Sue G. Edwards.
