Jeanmarie Shingleton - Office Manager

Jeanmarie Shingleton - Christ UMC StaffI began my work at Christ Church on Holy week of 1999. At the time I thought it was the craziest time to have a new secretary begin working since Holy Week is such a busy time, especially in a church of this size. However I discovered that baptism by fire is the best way to go!

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and have lived here all my life. My parents came from Massachusetts and as I was growing up we traveled back East yearly. I was blessed to be able to see most of our wonderful country as I was growing up.

My husband, Gary and I are proud parents to 3 children. Our daughter, Shevaun, lives in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX area. Our son, Nick and his wife Naomi live in California where he works for Livermore Laboratories as a Mechanical Engineer. Our youngest son, Sean still lives in the Salt Lake area.

During my free time my favorite past time is designing, piecing and quilting quilts and anything related to quilting. I enjoy serving on the Utah Quilt Guild Board and being involved in several local chapters of the Utah Quilt Guild. My secondary past time is reading. I enjoy reading all kinds of books - mysteries, inspirational Christian Fiction and just about any other kind of book I can get my hands on.

I firmly believe that God has called me to be a church secretary and I want to use the gifts Hes given me as He desires. Ive discovered Christ Church to be a wonderful place to use those gifts. The congregation and staff are great to work with and have brought many blessings my way. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
