OUR PASTOR AND STAFF

Living the faith, hope, love and joy of Christ with everyone, everyday, everywhere. 

Pastor – Rev. Alison Skillman

Greetings friends! My name is Rev. Alison Skillman, and my pronouns are she/her. I was raised in Livingston, Montana where I discovered the United Methodist Church at the age of 9, thanks to a friend who invited me to youth group. I quickly got involved in the church starting to feel a nudge towards pursuing ministry. In 2013, I graduated from Park High School in Livingston and went on to receive my Bachelor’s in Religious Studies at Montana State University. Go Cats go! During those four years of my undergrad, there was a lot of discernment in that time where I discovered my call to pastoral ministry. I graduated with my Master’s of Divinity from Iliff School of Theology in Denver in 2021. I began working at Shiloh UMC in July of 2022, so I am new here!
I am so excited to see how we can all cultivate beloved community together!

Treasurer / Hospitality – Susan Hathaway

 

For several years, I have been Finance Chair and in 2020 became Shiloh UMC’s Treasurer.  I am a numbers person with an accounting and office management background backed up by a Business Administration Bachelor’s degree. Shiloh is the third church that I have served at as Treasurer, and I find it rewarding.
 
My spiritual journey started almost 70 years ago from sprinkle baptism, confirmation, teaching Sunday School, Walk to Emmaus, Prison Ministry and Lay Leadership training. I am a mother, grandmother, and as of 2020 a widow. Shiloh has become a special home to me with which my journey continues to be a blessing. Shiloh has become my extended family that I have found spiritual mentors and hope that I can be a mentor others in their journey. The Finance/Stewardship Team, Shiloh Care Givers Support Group, Mission Team, Hospitality Team, Endowment Team and Trustee support are very special to me.

 

Piano / Chime Choir Director – Judy Frank

 
 
I have been involved with music since the age of five. 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.
 

General Assistant / Nursery – Sandi Rogina  

 
God has been the center of my life and has sustained me throughout life’s blessings and challenges. God is my rock and foundation.
 
I came to Shiloh United Methodist Church through a friend when asked to help with the handprint quilts that were being made for the church. I have been with Shiloh for over 13 years now. Five of those years, I have been the nursery attendant. Working with children gives me great joy because I believe
they are the true faces of God. Shiloh also gives me the opportunity to use my artistic side while decorating the Sanctuary and the Alter. I enjoy music and am a member of both the regular choir and the chimes choir. I also monitor and participate in the live stream of our Sunday services on Facebook and the recorded Sunday services on YouTube. 
 
One last blessing that God has put into my life, is the ability to be a coach for Special Olympics. I get to work with both children and adults with special needs, and this enriches my life beyond measure.
