Adam Maxwell - Media Minister
I am local resident of Princeton, WV but grew up just down the road in Speedway, WV. I have attended MapleView for a large portion of my life and started working here in May of 2018. I am a college graduate of Johnson University in Knoxville, TN with a double major in Bible and Theology and Communications focusing in Media Ministry. I believe that God has blessed me with the opportunity to have my first post college ministry at my home church with all of my family and friends to be by my side.
I married my beautiful bride Kaitlyn, on May 26, 2017 and we have two awesome dogs named Izzy and Oliver.
I love eating delicious foods, playing video games, playing disk golf, playing with the latest and greatest technology, playing music, and hanging out with friends.
Jennifer Sheppard - Children's Director
I am a local resident of Tazewell County, growing up in the pews of Mudfork Church of Christ. I began directing the Children's Ministry in August of 2015. I am a college graduate of Concord University with a degree in Elementary Education and have a passion for teaching. Throughout my time in college I prayed that God would use my pedagogy and teaching skills to build His kingdom. The answer to that prayer was Maple View Kids.
When I'm not teaching or working at the church, you'll find me binge watching Netflix, creating a craft from my never ending DIY Pinterest list, or attempting a new recipe. I love exploring new cities and road tripping to find the best shopping. I have a heart for service and am very passionate about mission work, always eager to see God at work in the lives of the people I meet.
