Stacy Shaw is an ordained minister in The Wesleyan Church who has a passion for reaching teenagers with the message of God’s love and walking alongside of them as they learn how to follow Jesus. After graduating from Indiana Wesleyan University, Stacy began serving as a Pastor of Student Ministries in the local church, first at a small church in Overland Park, Kansas, and then in Corning, New York where she led a Student Ministry Team. During that time, she completed her Master of Divinity from Wesley Seminary and also served on multiple teams with The Wesleyan Church to organize youth and pastoral conferences. Stacy is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Ministry through the Youth, Family, and Culture Cohort at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Stacy joined the team at IWU’s School of Theology and Ministry, as an Assistant Professor of Practical Theology and Youth Ministry, to bring her pastoral experience and love of local church ministry into the classroom. She works closely with Youth Ministry Events at IWU and helps lead denominational youth and pastoral conferences too. When she isn’t on campus, you can find her and her husband cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs and enjoying time with their young son.
