Shannon Washam

Director of Western Heights Baptist Center

Shannon joined the KCAB team in 2004 with a growing desire to make disciples and minister to the disadvantaged.  What a surprise to find the inner city to be a ripe mission field of adults and children waiting to experience the love of Christ.  With a team of committed volunteers, Shannon serves the people in that area with a great passion.  Shannon and his wife Jean Ann, have three energetic teenagers that sustain them in a busy lifestyle of running to games and events.
