DHPC Staff

Reverend Shelli Latham was called to be the pastor Druid Hills Presbyterian Church in September of 2014.

Shelli 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, whose first call was to youth ministry, 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. Pastor Shelli can be contacted by email at pastorshelli@dhpc.org or by phone at 404-875-7591 (x101). For pastoral emergencies, please call 404-920-8981,
