Michelle McAllister never had vocational ministry in her plans and she didn’t know Cashion even existed, so being the youth minister at First Baptist Church, Cashion was not on her radar. But one Sunday in 2005 while at church in Shawnee a few months before graduating from Oklahoma Baptist University, the Lord strongly laid on her heart that he was calling her to do ministry that summer. That same Sunday while at church in Cashion, the Lord laid Michelle’s name on Pastor Greg’s heart to ask her to come and work with the youth for that summer. And ever since that first summer back in 2005, Michelle has loved serving as youth minister to the 7th – 12th graders of Cashion. Michelle is married to Stephen and they have a 1-year-old daughter who has become the youth group mascot! Michelle is also a marital and family therapist in Oklahoma City.
