Shannon Miller is the director of Arise Special Needs Ministry at Irving Bible Church, which she has been leading since 2012. Prior to working at IBC, she taught special education for 9 years in public schools. God has developed in Shannon a strong conviction that all people are made in the image of God and have gifts, talents and a purpose. Her heart’s desire is to elevate and advocate for the marginalized and oppressed, and to exhort the Church to welcome, include and value all people. She also collects selfies with animals, and enjoys reading, playing video games, and singing karaoke!
