Matt Fulmer

Lead Pastor

I believe God loves us completely and offers each of us a life beyond what we could imagine, no matter where we are on our journey or what our past might involve. I have the privilege to work with the Good Shepherd staff and leaders to create a place where everyone belongs. I hope you decide to connect with us so we can walk with you wherever you are in your faith journey. When I’m not at Good Shepherd, I’m hanging out with my wife, Rikki, and my two kids, Ellio and Esther. I love to be outside on any adventure, hopefully hiking or riding my bike.

Shannon Burns

Director of gsKids/ N Oak Campus

Jesus loves me (and you!) & I love Jesus. My main squeeze is Shawn, our precious gift is Natalie. Sprinkles always.  Quilting is my therapy. My dream car is a pink VW bug with a black top. Beaches over mountains. Sporting KC is the only team Shawn and I agree to root for together. I'm a typical middle child and thrive on happiness and joy.

Ashley Collier

Hi! I am Ashley Collier. I feel so blessed to be part of a multicampus preschool serving 300+ kids in the Kansas City area and a church that loves to welcome new people.

Karson Davis

gsKids Director - Gladstone Campus

Hey! I am Karson Davis and I am the gsKids Director for our Gladstone Campus! I grew up attending Good Shepherd and feel so passionate and blessed to be apart of our ministry here. I graduated from WKU (go tops!), love the color yellow, and exploring anywhere downtown KC. I can't wait to create a safe and positive space for your kids!

Cathy McIntire

Campus Pastor - Gladstone

Hi! Since joining the staff in 2015, Good Shepherd has provided me the space and freedom to serve in a variety of ways – working with the youth, preaching, serving our community, and launching A Turning Point. These experiences have stretched and deepened my faith and reminded me of God’s providence and provision.Outside of work, I enjoys time with my grandchildren, walks, and sunshine.

Jose Ramirez

Director of Youth and Young Adults

Hi, I'm Jose! Born and raised in the West Side of Kansas City and proud son of immigrant parents. I've been involved in many areas of church for 12 years and now have the pleasure of focusing on one of my passions! I am a fanatic for anything and everything in fine arts, comic books and sports.

Bryan Rezen

Pastor of Discipleship

I grew up in the Northland of Kansas City.  When I'm not at church or school (my two favorite places), you can find me taking a run through the streets of the Northland or curled up & reading in a coffee shop. I've been married to the love of my life, Tara, for over 20 years, and we have two beautiful children, Brody & Olivia.

Gabo (Jeffrey) Toro

Director of Creative Arts

Originally from Venezuela, but I now live in Kansas City with my wife Mariana and our dog Mossi. Born and raised in a church, I have been part of worship teams since I was 4 years old. My job combines two passions: music and visual creativity.

Mariana Toro

Director of Connections and Outreach

As a child, I loved dancing and ice cream (I still do!), but later, the linguistics, literature, and E-learning world reached my heart. Before KC, I enjoyed leading Youth and our non-profit organization in Venezuela. I love the many opportunities we have in ministry to care, love, be a voice, and evolve together as part of society. I am grateful for the opportunity to create spaces for God's love to be shared with kids and family during weekdays and weekends at Good Shepherd. I also love exploring new places with my husband Gabo and our doggy Mossy.

Diannah White

Executive Pastor/ Campus Pastor N Oak

My role at Good Shepherd allows me the opportunity to be part of all of our campuses! Providing strategy, encouraging staff culture, and ensuring financial integrity are only a few of the ways I get to take care of the business of the church. Prior to joining the staff team in 2012 I spent 19 years working for Special Olympics Missouri. I celebrate my wedding anniversary with Jeff by wearing my wedding dress which provides our daughter Jenna an annual embarrassing moment!
