Speakers

Sharon Sallmen

Sharon was diagnosed with Dyslexia at the age of six by her first grade teacher. After a minimal amount of one-on-one training in the Language Arts, she was able to succeed in the classroom with little continued help. However, when her son and daughter received similar diagnosis, she decided to obtain further instruction on how to teach Dyslexic children. Sharon has been tutoring young people with similar learning challenges since 2014. She is currently working with students at Milford Christian Academy as well as local home-schoolers as a Dyslexic Specialist. It is her goal to help others understand the unique needs of children with Dyslexia.

Wendi Shadwick

Wendi became a member of First Baptist Church of Milford in 1998 and has been the nursery director since 2007. She is married to Kelly and they have 2 children: Eden and Liam.

Charles Shoemaker
President - Church Planting America

Charles Shoemaker began life in the Chicago area, converted to Christ at the age of eight because gospel-preaching churches were focused on children’s ministry. After being called to preach at 16, he earned a Bible Diploma from the Institute of Biblical Studies of Liberty University. He has earned degrees (Ed.D., M.A.) from educational institutions, including a D.D. from Midwestern Baptist College. He served as the Admin. Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church and President of their college for 15 years. Dr. Shoemaker is a frequent speaker among church leadership conferences, and he currently serves as the President of Church Planting America--a missions agency promoting church planting in the U.S. and throughout the world. He and his wife, Sharon, have been married for 45 years and reside in Jacksonville, Florida. They have two daughters and two sons-in-law (all in full-time ministry) and six grandchildren.

Keith Smith

Pastor Smith joined the staff of Pine Bluff in 1989 where he served as Youth Pastor and Director of Venture of Faith Camp for fifteen years before becoming Senior Pastor in 2005. While serving as Director of VFC, Bro. Keith had the opportunity to travel and preach in churches all over the southeast. As time allows and wherever the Lord leads, he still enjoys speaking and encouraging churches. As a part of his first love in the pastorate, he is passionate about mentoring and training young people for the ministry. The venue of a summer camp allows Bro. Smith to continue to have an impact on the next generation of the church. Keith and his high school sweetheart, Kim, were married after graduating from Pensacola Christian College. In 2019, they celebrated thirty years serving at Pine Bluff as well as thirty years of blissful marriage! Keith and Kim are blessed with three daughters, two sons-in-law, and one incredibly adorable grandson. Keith and Kim enjoy kayaking, traveling, gardening, college football and spending time with their family.
