Bella Vista Community Church, 75 E. Lancashire Blvd., welcomes Shauna Morrissey as children's ministry director.

"The Lord has been leading me down an unconventional path for years, and I couldn't be more excited to be calling Northwest Arkansas home again," Morrissey says. "When I moved to Bentonville in ninth grade, God radically changed my heart and life through an amazing group of girls that helped teach me to place my whole hope in Jesus. In high school, He called me to ministry and in college answered my prayer heartily.

"Since then I have gotten to live a lot of places and have been asked to love on dance students, youth groups, businessmen, Korean kids, and most recently, teens who have struggled with addictions. I studied at Ouachita Baptist University and ... spent 71/2 years teaching middle school English in Seoul, South Korea."
