Bella Vista Community Church recently hired Shauna Morrissey as its children's ministry director.

Shauna Morrissey said she has been led to this place and recalls her journey.

"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. 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 to 'break my heart for the things You break for.'

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 majored in Christian studies -- missions, with a minor in sociology. I am also a certified teacher in English as a second language, elementary education and middle school social science. I spent 7.5 years teaching middle school English in Seoul, South Korea, and before that worked in the financial world. I enjoy singing (especially in Asian karaoke rooms), traveling, dancing, making super cheesy jokes, experiencing new cultures, hanging out with my cute puppy Ara, and investing in the lives of young people!"

Bella Vista Community Church is located at 75 East Lancashire Blvd. in Bella Vista.
