We’re serious about being student led. Students plan our special events. Students lead in worship. Students share the Gospel on campus. We do have staff to coordinate, plan, point everyone to Jesus, and guide you on your journey. We have a director and usually 1-2 interns/assistants.

Shannon Rutherford, Director
Shannon serves as our minister here on campus. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Houston Baptist University and a Master of Divinity from Baylor’s Truett Seminary. Shannon came to South Plains in 2012 after serving as College Minister at University Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
