Shining Lor, Children's Ministry Interim Asst. Director

< Return to The RiverLife Team

“In Matthew 18, Jesus likened children to the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. I am an advocate for children and youth to help develop a relationship with Jesus by building relationships with them, listening to their stories and questions, and helping them explore their curiosity for the Word of God and how God created each of them uniquely.”

Shining Lor was born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She graduated from Crown College in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Youth/Social Ministry and Child and Family Ministry. Throughout her teenage years, she was always actively involved in her church and youth group, which helped develop a love for working with youth. She works tirelessly to help people succeed in their goals and tasks by humbly serving others.

During her free time, you can find Shining practicing her hand lettering, water coloring, crocheting, knitting, or organizing just about anything. She also enjoys binging TV series and playing board games with her husband, Tommy Lor. She loves spending time with her family, especially her nephews and nieces and can almost always be found having a baby in her arms.
