Shelvy’s life has been shaped by a willingness to serve where and as God directs. He grew up in Sacramento and moved to southern California to attend college, where he studied theater and helped found a chapter of Alpha Gamma Omega. After college he moved to Pasadena and began attending Reality LA, where he served as a leader and coach for community groups and also as one of the Sunday hospitality administrators.
