Clifford Shirley is a husband to Jessie and a father to Ford & Carson. Jessie is kind, compassionate, confident and brave. Ford & Carson are wild as cowboys, brave as outdoorsmen, and passion runs in their bones.
As a graduate from the University of Tennessee and native of Knoxville, Clifford Shirley began his vocational life working for Young Life, a ministry to high school students. After more than a decade of meeting kids on their turf, he transitioned in the past couple of years to spend more time with his family and working with his best friends.
A couple things that bring him to life are: people, Chick-fil-A, the wind and the rain, driving with his windows down, a night on the couch with Jessie, UT football, and playing with his boys in any body of water.
