Monty earned his Bachelor's degree from OSU and his Master’s in Ministry from Abilene Christian. In his spare time, he enjoys being with his kids, house projects, fishing, and camping.

Barry is originally from Deer Creek, OK.  After graduating from OSU in the spring of 2020 with a degree in Ag Engineering, Barry joined the UC staff in our Campus Ministry Apprenticeship program.  Barry and his wife, Katie, have been married since December 2019 and are both amazing leaders at the UC.  Barry has been a UC intern and has a strong interest in international outreach, missions, and campus work!  He is excited to greet and deepen relationships with each student in our ministry!

Megan hails from Haworth, OK!  She has served the UC ministry as an undergraduate intern for the past two years.  This year, she will continue as our undergraduate campus ministry apprentice.  Her role is to help focus on outreach to new students, help with the planning and leadership of the UC, and grow in her knowledge and experience with campus ministry.

Shawna started serving the UC in 2019 as the secretary. She and her husband, Shawn, have lived in Stillwater since 2013 and have two children, Karsan (19) and Gunnar (12). In her spare time, Shawna enjoys cheering on the Braves, reading, and spending time with her family.
