Shelli was called to Druid Hills Presbyterian Church in September of 2014.

Reverend Latham was ordained August 7, 2005 in the Northeast Georgia Presbytery. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in English from Converse College in 1996. She received her M.DIV. from Columbia Theological Seminary in 2005.

Shelli has a great passion for worship, seeking to make it multi-sensory and engaging of the whole person. She is also passionate about serving God’s most vulnerable children and has a particular call to advocacy. Shelli’s first call was to Youth Ministry; she comes to DHPC having recently completed her stint as Keynote Speaker for the Montreat Youth Conference, a role she also filled in 2010 and 2012. She has a great love for engaging teens and children in the church, and has a soft-spot for intergenerational ministry.

When not in the church building, Shelli spends a lot of time pounding the pavement in her running shoes, hammering something or other in her work-in-progress home, watching old episodes of West Wing, and planning adventures.

Fun Facts About Shelli

Favorite Bible passage
"I love passages about gutsy women. My favorite Old Testament heroine is Esther. And my all time favorite story is the anointing at Bethany, particularly the simplicity of Mark 14:2-9. I am also drawn to poetry in scripture, especially pieces that appear like a little gift in the midst of story or prose."
