Pastor Fred & Kelly Shirley
Senior Pastor
Fred and Kelly Shirley have been happily married for over 24 years. They have three teenage children: Chayse, Colton & Connor.
Fred was born in Missouri, raised in Arkansas, and was going to go to school to play baseball in Texas – but the Lord had other plans. Instead, he attended and graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He started working in ministry with a children’s pastor, where he met his wife Kelly. Fred moved to Minnesota, married Kelly, and created a junior high ministry at a large church in the Twin Cities. There have been many adventures in their 24 years of marriage – but their move to Rochester and taking over Mercy Hill Church in February of 2018, has been their best adventure yet.
In his downtime, Fred enjoys mountain biking, swimming, and taking motorcycle rides with his wife. He and his family love sports, especially football and lacrosse, riding bicycles, eating a great meal together and enjoying family time.
Pastor Patrick & Jocelyn Jack
Youth Pastor
Patrick & Jocelyn lead our youth in 6th thru 12th grade at youth service on Wednesdays nights. They’ve been a part of the Mercy Hill family since the beginning when their oldest was just a baby. Patrick and Jocelyn have adventures in food and running throughout the US and enjoy watching their kids enjoy different sports.
Pastor Jon & Tammy Wetenkamp
Children’s Pastor
Jon & Tammy have 5 children that are all adults now – but that doesn’t stop Jon & Tammy from being the coolest kids in town. They have been a part of Mercy Hill since their children were small and have been loving on kids from the start. Jon & Tammy pastor the kids in kindergarten through 5th grade each Sunday and Wednesday and enjoy challenging kids in the Word of God!
Just ask one of our kids what they learned about the minor prophets.
