WHO WE ARE
The Shadetree Group is a missional ministry based in Gretna, Florida,
founded in 2006 as a ministry initiative of Killearn United Methodist Church.
We exist to present the whole gospel to the whole person by affirming the dignity of under-resourced people and empowering them to transform their own lives. In addition to a ministry of presence, we coordinate many programs serving Gretna-area children, youth, and families. Our programs are designed using a strengths/asset based approach for personal empowerment and community development. We practice the principles of Christian Community Development, and our current programmatic emphasis is heavily focused upon indigenous leadership development.
