Contact Beaver Valley Young Life


Shannon Essick has roots in Tennessee which is where she grew up and attended school. During her time in Tennessee she was involved as a volunteer leader for Young Life at Elizabethton High School for many years. Shannon felt called to explore full time ministry and moved to Florida in 2014 where she served on staff at Southwind, a Young Life camp located in Ocala. She felt a strong pull to shift her focus from serving on property staff to ministry in the field, specifically focusing on building a new area of Young Life. On November 1st, 2015 Shannon arrived in Beaver where she now lives and serves as the Director of ministry for Beaver Valley Young Life. Beaver Valley has experienced great growth in just under two years but has a long way to go in the years to come. There is ministry in Geneva College, and two high schools in the area currently but in the years to come the goal is to grow into all schools in the area. Ministry is booming in the Metropolitan area of Pittsburgh and she is excited to see where the Lord leads as more kids have the opportunity to hear the gospel.  She has adjusted to the city of Pittsburgh and is excited to continue to make Pittsburgh a long term home as ministry is built all over the Pittsburgh area!
