Pastor Joe and Jodi Shelton, II
Joe Shelton was led in 2013 to pastor Greenvale. Saved in 1985 and called to preach in 1986, he is thankful for his early years of evangelism with opportunities to preach in hundreds of churches across the Tri-cities region of East Tennessee and surrounding states. Joe, with his wife, Jodi, attended Bible college after marriage where they both earned a degree in Theology. During his 30 years in the ministry, Joe has had the privilege of pastoring four churches in Florida and Tennessee. Together with their children, Faith and Joe, the Shelton's have cherished each unique pastorate, believing it to be exactly where God wanted them for that time. Their children now grown, Joe and Jodi are still excited to be serving in a local ministry with a heart to spread the gospel through local outreach and missions abroad.E-mail Pastor Joe Shelton, II E-mail Jodi Shelton
