Dwight Shelly Serving in Nigeria



My name is Dwight Shelly and I am serving as the Youth Pastor at an international Christian school called Hillcrest in Jos, Nigeria. My parents have served in Nigeria for more than three decades and I was born in Nigeria. In 2009 I graduated from Hillcrest and went on to attend Lancaster Bible College in Pennsylvania, earning a BA in Biblical Studies, and a BS in Health and Physical Education. I am currently working on a MA in Christian Ministries from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.

As the Youth Pastor of Hillcrest I am responsible for overseeing the spiritual life of our school. This includes Wednesday middle school and high school chapels, Sunday worship services, occasionally speaking at our elementary chapels, and organizing after-school discipleship and youth group events. I am also teaching Health to 6th and 9th grade students, and serving as the National Honor Society faculty adviser. This is my third full year teaching at Hillcrest and it is a privilege to be able to use my passions of preaching, teaching, and sports to serve God here.
