in love. We are involved in missions locally, nationally and internationally, and our
ministries provide many opportunities for spiritual growth and service for all ages and
their families. Our worship services are blended but lean traditional in style. In the
busy, frantic pace of this world, Shiloh is a place where attendees have the opportunity
not only to celebrate Christ but also to slow down, “Be still, and know that [He] is God”!
(Psalm 46:10, NIV 1984)

the youth ministry to define and implement the strategy and curriculum of the program.
