Kevin Shelton grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. He was fortunate to have been raised in a strong christian family and committed his life to Christ at the age of 8. He is a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University and Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
While in college, Kevin served a summer as an ESL teacher at Xinjiang University in Urumqi, Xinjiang China. After graduating from OBU, we served two years as a US/2 Language Missionary in Boulder, CO through the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. While at GGBTS, he served as the English congregation pastor of Sharon Chinese Baptist Church and worked at REI in Berkeley. After completing his Masters degree at GGBTS, he moved to Mariposa to volunteer with a ministry in Yosemite National Park.
He was hired by Yosemite Management as a front desk clerk at Cedar Lodge. During his tenure with YMG, he has served as Front Desk Clerk, Night Auditor, Sales and Marketing Director and currently serves as Vice President of Operations and Marketing.
While working for YMG, Kevin met his wife Carla (who at that time was also an employee of YMG.) They were married in April of 1996 and have been blessed with three beautiful daughters. They enjoy camping, working with livestock and watching movies.
In addition to serving as the Treasurer of New Life, Kevin serves as a board member for the Yosemite/Mariposa County Tourism Bureau, Mariposa Friends of the Fairgrounds, Mariposa FFA Boosters, 4-H Community Club Leader, and committee member for the Jr. Livestock Auction and El Portal Planning Commission.
We are thankful for Kevin and his gracious, loving leadership.
