Shelby Deeter | Director of Social Media
Director of social media
Shelby joined the IAFR team in 2019 after five years of working in college ministry. Although she enjoyed discipling students, her heart yearned to give a voice to those who often go unheard. She longs for the church, especially in America, to see the refugee crisis as something God cares deeply about, and to join him in loving displaced peoples.
Shelby serves IAFR as its Director of Social Media. She is eager to use her passion for written and visual communication to promote the work of IAFR and share stories of the forcibly displaced with the world.
Shelby lives in Peoria, Illinois, where she also operates the social media accounts for Epiphany Church. It was at Epiphany that she met Tim Barnes, who introduced her to IAFR. Shelby and her husband were married in 2016 and they have one son.
