We are Dan & Becky Shipton, and we have been here in Clifton since 2006 leading this wonderful family of believers as we journey in life together. Dan graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University in 1998, and was Ordained in the Wesleyan Church in 2000. He is currently attending Asbury Seminary through Extended-Learning courses. Becky has an Associates Degree, and is half-way through Ministerial training through Wesleyan FLAME training.
God has blessed us, as we have ministered alongside of one another for over 20 years in marriage. Together we have taught youth, worked in church planting, and for the past 8 years have ministered to churches in rural communities of the Mid-West. We grew up in rural and small-town Northern Michigan, which prepared us to understand the small-town and rural churches in which we have been called. We are blessed to be a part of the Clifton Wesleyan Church family.
Our passion in ministry has always been to help people grow in their own walk with Christ. We are all on a journey in this life, and though we may feel tossed about at times, faith and fellowship with other believers should be our safe harbor. In Christ all believers should grow in their own faith, as we encourage one another along the journey. We learn from the Master, Jesus Christ, to live in compassion and understanding for one another, as well as challenging one another to live up to the best of our potential in God’s calling upon each of our lives.
May God Richly Bless Your Journey Today,
Pastor Dan & Becky Shipton
