Shaw Family

Matt & Sharon Shaw - Directors

Matt and Sharon the directors at Uskichitto Retreat Center. Matt and Sharon met at URC while working as summer staff in the summer of 2004.  Matt proposed in the dining hall in the summer of 2005, and they were married the following spring.  Matt started working at a camp in 2001 and after 14 years he still loves every minute of it.  Sharon has been a homemaker for their family, spending precious moments with their daughter Anneliese and son Elijah. The Shaws have committed their lives to camping ministry and the Acts 2:42 model of community and discipleship: 

 "They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.  And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
