Shy Rees, Secretary

Shy (nee: Saundra Scheihagen) came to Joplin in 1995 to attend Ozark Christian College with a plan to go into mission work, but with a prayer that God would "steer" her where He wanted her to go. God steered her away from the mission field and into her dream job as proofreader at College Press Publishing. Her move here was also motivated by the fact that two of her three sons, Robert and Dow Tippett, were graduates of OCC and living in Joplin. She has one other son, Terrance, three beautiful daughters-in-law, and eight brilliant grandchildren!

While working at College Press, Shy met Dan Rees, a missionary kid and dedicated servant of the Lord. They were married in August 2000 and have enjoyed working, playing, and praying together ever since. They are members of Fir Road Christian Church where they serve as vocalists on the praise team and on the welcome team.

When College Press was forced to downsize in 2010, Shy and Dan started their own business, D&S Pre-Press Services through which they continue to do typesetting and proofreading for various clients including College Press, Literature & Teaching Ministries, and Good News Productions Internatonal. Dan is also a greeter at the 7th Street Walmart while Shy fulfills her duties here at Villa Heights. She enjoys her work here because she has wonderful people to work with and for, gets to use her skills as a proofreader and with layout and typography, and, most of all, gets to serve the Lord.
