Cody Shepherd

Director of Student Ministriesoffice: 913-681-5100 x 2303

Who:  Married to Erin and the dad of 2 boys, Jonathan and Judah.

What:  Director of Student Ministries (Grades 6-12)

 Where:  I am originally from Husker-land Baby!....Central Nebraska. I spent 13 years in parts of Kansas and 6 1/2 years n Lexington, Kentucky.

When:  My family and I started at SouthWoods in the fall of 2013. I have been in student ministry since 2003.

Why:  Growing up a preacher's kid the last thing I wanted to be was a minister. After helping out at camps and seeing students lives change I felt a very strong call to student ministry. I love seeing students fall in love with Jesus and step out and serve Him during some of the most challenging and identity defining times of their lives.

My Favorite Verse:  Since I was 17 years old my life verse has been "Even though I am a free man with no master, I have become a slave to all people to bring many to Christ."  1 Corinthians 9:19
