Rev. Dr. Jimmy Shelbourn
Parish Associate & Acting Head of Staff
Jimmy is a native of Broken Bow and attended Hastings College where he ran “The 880.” That was when track was measured in yards, not meters! He then earned a Master of Divinity degree at Louisville Seminary in Kentucky, was pastor to a church in Louisville, and earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Louisville Seminary. In 1985 he became pastor to the Presbyterian Church in Beatrice, where he served for 31 years. He has traveled to Scotland six times and is our “staff bagpiper.” If you hear someone whistling or singing down a church hallway, it is likely Jimmy. Jimmy is serving as the acting head-of-staff and Moderator of Session while a committee of the Session searches for a Transitional Pastor.
