Pastor – To Be Appointed

 
 
 
 

Church Administrator – Pam Dandrea

 
 
 
My family and I came to Shiloh in 1990. We loved the people! My kids have grown have (beautiful) children of their own now. My newest grandkids are twins who came a little early and are hoping to come home soon. I recently retired and I think I failed (if that’s possible) because about two weeks after retiring, I said “yes” to an offer to work here as the Church Administrator. It was a new position created to take some of the administrative pressure off of the pastor. All the skills they said I needed were the ones I have so I figured God had a different plan for me than lounging around the house in my PJs. I love the new job! I only work a couple hours a couple days a week, but I am learning new skills. It has a much different pace than my old job! I have been on almost all committees in the church. I especially enjoy the newest one – Messy Church! I feel blessed to be in this place now that I spend more time here.

 Choir Director – Dave Merkel

I am the choir director for Shiloh UMC — a role I enjoy immensely! I’ve been associated with Shiloh for a few years now, in varying roles, but anyone that knows me knows that music is really where it’s at for me. I love Shiloh for what it is: a collection of awesome and diverse people finding our way in the world together as God’s children. As Shiloh continues to change and grow, in dynamic ways, I hope to have more peeps join the choir; there is no litmus test for talent or skill level. I welcome your interest in being a part of our great group.
 
Music is an integral part of our faith, God, Creation, and even ourselves. It stands to reason that music helps all worshippers better connect with God and one another, and it is the practice of worship where we are empowered and sent out into the world to be God’s people — compassionate cohorts in Christ. My hope is that we can continue to grow the music program at Shiloh, and thereby grow the impact it has on worshippers and their participation in life beyond and without the walls, out in the world.
 

 Accompanist/Bell Choir Director – Judy Frank

I have been involved with music since the age of 5. My music passion has always been hymn singing. I believe we hear God’s message of love to us through song.  Shiloh Methodist and their ministry to our neighbors in Billings made this church a place where I could fit in. From the first moment I walked through the front door, I felt very welcome. It has been a great joy for me to accompany the adult choir. The chime choir has provided an opportunity to create an inter-generational activity for our church members from older members to youth. I appreciate Shiloh providing me this opportunity to help create a positive and exciting worship experience for all who walk in our doors.
