My name is Shelby Wellman and I am so happy to be the interim Children's Director! Currently, I am a 5th/8th grade teacher at Veritas Academy of Tucson and am in my TENTH year of teaching! I have been married to my husband, Cory, for seven years and we have three children, Blaire (9), Tatum (6), and Cub (4). We also have a new addition, Valor, to the family who is a seven month old Rhodesian Ridgeback. I have been living in Tucson since 2011 after moving from my beloved home state of Minnesota. 

Investing in our children is crucial for expanding the Kingdom of Christ. Children need to be trained up, cared for, and loved just as Christ loves us. I believe a Children's ministry filled with a solid Bible curriculum, consistent volunteers, and  family events help to aid and guide parents to develop disciples to grow in their own faith. My mission is to create an environment in which brothers and sisters in Christ can equip and strengthen each to live out our calling to "train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it" Proverbs 22:6
