Teacher Spotlight - Dr. Gleason

November 2nd, 2012


At Shiloh we are truly blessed with a great staff of teachers. Each week our teachers pour their lives into the lives of your children. Periodically, we will be picking a member of our faculty to highlight in an effort for you to get to know them better.

We will start this week with a new member of our staff, Dr. Nick Gleason.

Favorite Bible Story: Mark 8:22-26; Jesus heals the blind man at Bethsaida, but he did it in two attempts. Love the illustration that we have to be persistent in some things that don't always work out the first time, but we'll see fruit if we stay faithful.
