Captains Shiels

Captains Andrew and Melissa Shiels

Riga 1 Corps Officers (Pastors)


Captains Andrew and Melissa Shiels have had a heart for overseas missions for many years, serving in both Bolivia and Romania in a short-term capacity.  However, their call to serve overseas was confirmed as they served separately on different mission teams to the Turks and Caicos Islands of the Caribbean. In July 2014, Captains Shiels, along with their children Evan, 9, and Ellie, 7, moved to the country of Latvia where they have been appointed to serve as  the Riga 1 corps officers.   Please join in prayer for their family as together they learn a new language and encounter a new culture.  Also pray specifically for the children as they attend an international school and adjust to their new context.
