Christopher and Shannon Stellhorn have been married for sixteen years and have five children. Cephas (their oldest who is adopted and serving in the US Coast Guard), Gideon, Silas, Aibhlinn, and Cullen.
Christopher is from the Gulf Coast in Texas and Shannon from the St. Louis area of Missouri. Christopher has served for almost two decades in ministry which included preaching, student ministry, children's ministry, men's ministry, formal Bible training and more. Shannon is a licensed home birth midwife created and led a birth assistance training program and taught at the Texas Midwifery School. Shannon has also led a women's ministry program and prior to marriage served in short-term overseas missions to Cuba and Costa Rica. Chris & Shannon also served as houseparents at a Christian maternity home.
For seven years they were in prayer after their first trip to Scotland. They felt the desire to one day serve in the UK and now that time is here! They currently live in Texas as they raise their support and prepare to launch overseas.
Their vision is to see new churches planted in Scotland! On that journey they hope to provide formal Bible training to raise new leaders to make disciples in their communities and also start new churches themselves, to create programs to reach children and teens and see the local church encouraged and revitalized! Today only 1% of Scots attend a Bible believing church, while 97%-98% do not know Christ! For many, a Bible believing church is not available in their community...we hope to change that and win Scotland for the Kingdom of God!
Consider supporting the Stellhorns today and be apart of their Clan!
