Shelley Mahoney serves the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware and “SEND DC” as a church planting assessment coordinator. She assists church planting candidates with completing their NAMB pre-assessments and preparing for their in-person interviews.

She also works as an adjunct faculty member at Anne Arundel Community College and serves as a freelance marketing and social media consultant for Plumb & Pixel, a Georgia-based marketing firm.

Shelley and her late husband, Joshua Allen, served four years ministering at Grace Bible Church, Las Cruces, New Mexico, where Joshua served as senior pastor.

Shelley also served in family minister at Waldorf Baptist Church, and was a summer missionary, working with church planting, with “Embrace Baltimore,” a North American Mission Board Strategic Focus City.

Her most biggest job, she says, is taking care of her sons, Josiah and Liam. They also have two pets in their little family—Spurgeon, a 120-pound bullmastiff and a little black cat named Piper.

In her spare time, Shelley enjoys creative writing, and taking long walks.
