Special Guests and Speakers:


Keith & Kristyn Getty are Irish modern hymn writers and performers who mix the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition to teach Christian doctrine. Perhaps their best-known song is “In Christ Alone,” which is sung by millions around the world each year. They have released more than 10 albums, including two kids’ albums and a Christmas album. In 2017, the Gettys released their newest book, SING! How and Why We Worship.



Stephen Davey is the host pastor of Shepherds360. In 1986 he planted Colonial Baptist Church and has served as pastor/teacher for the past 32 years. He serves as the president of Shepherds Theological Seminary, teaching pastoral theology and Bible exposition. Stephen also serves as the Bible teacher on Wisdom for the Heart, heard internationally on more than 250 radio stations, now translated in 7 languages.



Gene Getz is a popular speaker and former pastor who is known worldwide for his 60-plus books on church renewal and Christian character. His book The Measure of a Man alone has sold more than a million copies. In 2012, Dr. Getz also completed the historic Life Essentials Study Bible, a seven-year effort resulting in the first ever multimedia study Bible. He also serves as president of the Center for Church Renewal, designed to minister to pastors, missionaries and other church leaders.



David and Jason Benham are nationally acclaimed real-estate entrepreneurs and best-selling authors. Their accomplishments have been recognized by dozens of publications, including Inc. magazine and The Wall Street Journal. The identical twins’ rise to success earned them a home improvement reality show with HGTV in 2014—yet the show was abruptly canceled during production because of their commitment to biblical values. They have appeared on CNN, Fox News and ABC’s Good Morning America defending their beliefs.



Jeremy Smith was born and raised in West Texas where he graduated with a B.A. in Christian Ministry from Wayland Baptist University. He has served in ministry for over 20 years, including 7 years in Costa Rica, where he and his wife, Kerbi, served as missionaries before returning to the States to complete their Master’s degrees in Theological Studies from The West Institute in Laramie, Wyoming, a satellite campus of Shepherd’s Theological Seminary. Jeremy currently serves as the Student Development Coordinator for the West Institute campus, and serves Laramie Valley Chapel by leading the Middle School Student Ministry and is the Lead Pastor for LVC's Spanish Ministry. He's also continuing his education at Shepherds in pursuit of his Masters of Divinity degree.



Forrest Chapman has a split personality… literally.  In life, he is Forrest Chapman.  He received his theological training at Calvary Baptist Seminary and holds a Master of Divinity.  He has been speaking at camps, youth retreats, vacation Bible schools, and special church meetings for over 15 years.  In his job, he is magician Peter Pitchford.  He has been a full-time magician for over eleven years.  In those eleven years, he has won 22 awards including US Champion of stage magic.  He travels the country as Peter Pitchford bringing his fun style of entertainment to corporate functions, stages, and private events.  When Forrest speaks at camp, he mixes the two personalities in a fun way that will capture the imaginations of his listeners and teach them sound, rich, scriptural truth.
