Shelley Kral serves as associate pastor of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Longview.
Church member Jim Bartlett says of Kral, "She is, as she terms it an 'intentional Christian.' As a young adult, she made the conscious decision to accept Christ, which then led her down the path of ordination. She is an extremely intelligent, knowledgeable and gifted teacher of the word. And she also cares very deeply for everyone in the congregation."
