Administrative Assistant for Intergenerational Ministries
Shauneen Hatfield is the Administrative Assistant to Kim Talley, the Assistant Pastor of Intergenerational Ministries. Shauneen has been married to her sweetheart, Biff, since 1974, and together they have one son, Scot. She also has a stepdaughter, Cheree, and a daughter-in-law, Lynn….both of whom she loves as her own. Her sweetest thing in life is the closeness of family, including their six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren! Biff and Shauneen have been members of First Pres since 2001, during which time she has served as an elder twice—once from 2006-2008, and most recently 2017-2020. She has also served on the Women’s Committee and helped our Women's Director coordinate Women’s Bible Studies. One of Shauneen's greatest joys has been leading sweet women in several different studies—what a gift that has been! She also has a great passion for missions and serves on the World Missions Team and has participated in mission trips to Louisiana after hurricane Katrina, and with a group who went to La Paz, Bolivia. Biff and Shauneen helped with the Rick Husband House build through Habitat for Humanity, and it was a huge honor for her to serve our amazing staff for the past three years through being a member of the Personnel Committee. Shauneen and Biff are members of NUFF’s and the Parlor Sunday School group led by Dan Carter and Orlando Lopez. They love their First Pres Family and cherish worshiping together at any of the three fantastic worship services, but most often, you’ll find them at the 11:05 service.
After working in the education field for 25 years, Shauneen retired so she could better care for her dad and help him navigate his life with Alzheimer’s disease. After her sweet daddy went to his heavenly home, she began to feel a little bit at lost ends. So eleven years after retiring, she began praying about the perfect part-time job. She thought that the perfect job would be working at First Presbyterian Church and to serve her church family! Her prayers for many months included asking God that, if it was His will, to please open a door so that she could work at First Pres. Oh how sweetly He answered her prayers! She truly looks forward to serving the children and youth of our church and community and prays that through her work she can be used as God’s conduit through which His love flows onto other people. She is eternally grateful for this opportunity! She joyfully proclaims one of her favorite Bible verses: “I love You, Lord; You are my strength!” (Psalm 18:1) To Him and Him alone she gives all the glory, honor, and praise!
