Meet Our Pastors
In 2016, Henry and his family moved to Chico from the Bay Area, where Henry had served as a pastor for nine years. Although Henry grew up in Petaluma, CA, his education pulled him eastward across the country, first to Arizona for his bachelor’s degree and then to New Jersey for his master’s degree. Henry finally returned to California to earn his Doctorate of Ministry at Fuller Seminary. One of Henry’s joys in Christ is that believers have the incredible privilege of being lifelong learners from the one true teacher – Jesus Christ.
Associate Pastor Congregational Care and Women’s Ministries
Shannon has been with Bidwell Presbyterian Church since graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2011. She ministers to our congregation as Associate Pastor for Congregational Care and Women’s Ministries. She grew up outside of Chicago and every once in a while her Midwest accent slips back into her speech. Shannon responded to her call from God after two different careers in Chicago and New York City.
