While at SLCC, Shane did a 10-week internship in the mission field in South America.

Shane’s passions and giftings are meeting and connecting with people, networking, and giving. Shane and Julie enjoy hosting together in their home. Dinners, Bible studies, weddings and celebrations, game nights, and 180 Home gatherings are a few things you might see happening at their home.
Shane loves people and sees his business as a mission field. He feels blessed that he has the opportunity to speak into the lives of his employees, customers, and many business acquaintances and friends that he interacts with daily. Shane never meets a stranger and loves meeting new people. His love for the Lord and his servant heart have led him to 180 Chicago, where he feels blessed and humbled to a part of the Body.
