Shirley is no stranger to Ashworth. Shirley joined the church in 1991 and has served in many volunteer roles including (but certainly not limited to) the children’s ministry, Vacation Bible School, personnel and finance committees and as a deacon.
Shirley is retired from the Transportation Department of the State of Iowa where she served as the Director of the Motor Vehicle Division. She has one grown son and daughter-in-law who are also a part of Ashworth and three grandchildren who she loves being an active part of their lives.
Shirley previously served as a deacon from 2013-16 and was part of the team that hired most of the church staff. Shirley has a positive outlook and a passion for the church, especially the children’s ministry. She cherishes the church for its multi-generational makeup, commitment to leading others to see the light of Christ and ministry to a variety of folks.
