About Shirley

Shirley is a native Oklahoman but spent 44 years as a career missionary to Brazil with International Missions of Free Will Baptists. From 1980-1985, she and her husband, Jim, took a leave of absence to move to the Randall University campus and serve as professors, Director of Missions, and Directors of Student Affairs. After 44 years in Brazil, Shirley and Jim moved back to Moore, Oklahoma and she has now joined the Randall University as a
receptionist.

While in Brazil, the Combs’ three Brazilian-born children attended Randall University. Since then, three of their Brazilian-born grandchildren have attended the university, and another grandchild currently attends. Since Shirley’s father also attended the university when it first started in Tulsa, she proudly claims to be a fourth generation family connected with Randall!

Outside of her dedication to the RU family, Shirley loves to serve in ministries with women, children, and families. She is a speaker and author and loves to spend time with her family and international friends. Each year she is invited to minister in her beloved Brazil.
