Daniel Conley - Rock of Ages
As a young married couple, the Lord called Daniel and Kayla to the mission field. Their field is reaching the youth in the public schools both foreign and domestic. The Conleys are based out of Lexington, KY and they are joined with the Rock of Ages Prison ministries in the Prison Prevention Field. They actually have the opportunity to go into the classrooms of the public schools during regular classroom hours and teach lessons on character, morals, and ethics and reach the youth with the Gospel! Daniel and Kayla also set up Bible clubs where they get the opportunity to preach the word of God and give a full invitation and lead lost young souls to Christ. Their ministry moves them to an area that God leads them to where there are opportunities and openings to get into the local public schools . The Conleys help open the doors and establish the Character Under Construction curriculum and start Bible clubs. They then train members of the local church they are working with to volunteer their time once or twice a month to go in and teach the youth using the CUC program. Once the schools are established Daniel and Kayla go to the next area the Lord leads them too.

Freedom Baptist Church, Jobstown, NJ - John Gorman
God began developing a burden in Jon and Tina’s hearts for military missions nearly ten years ago when Tina’s younger brother Rick, who was serving as a US Marine in Iraq, was killed in action. Jon and Tina were moved by Rick’s sacrifice to give themselves as a “living sacrifice” (Rom. 12:1) to God to reach with the Gospel those heroes who put their lives on the line for us. Jon and Tina’s great desire is for those who serve our country to come to know Jesus Christ before it is too late and to be discipled and grow in the Word of the Lord. Jon and Tina moved to New Jersey in 2013 and began Freedom Baptist Church outside of Fort Dix. Jon preaches, disciples, and goes out soul winning regularly as the pastor of Freedom Baptist Church. He also administrates and operates the Christian Servicemen center ministry in Wrightstown, NJ. Tina handles the office and paper work as well as the church nursery. She homeschools their four oldest children, Caleb, Anna, Abigail, and Ethan, with little Grace as her helper.

MIDWEST CHRISTIAN BOYS' FOOTBALL CAMP, Dwight, IL - Dan Woodward
Pastor Woodward has pastored the First Baptist Church of Dwight, IL since 1985. His vision to affect the lives of young people has greatly impacted countless teenagers who now serve God around the globe. He has said of of the Midwest Christian Boys' Football Camp (Man Camp)… “Man Camp is leadership training to prepare boys for manhood. It teaches that the purpose of correction, criticism, and discipline is to make you better. It is a benchmark for what is difficult, building confidence in God and self to tackle real life hardships and never quit. The preaching is powerful: the results are life changing.”

Pastor Walt Shuckert
Bro. Shuckert has had a huge impact on our very own FBC Kenmore! In 1980, Pastor Walt Schuckert was Pastor of our church here in Akron. Under his leadership, in 1985 the church purchased the property here at 2330 East Avenue. With God’s help, the church was able to pay off the property in 1989, and then started building the current auditorium. Not wanting to go into great debt, most of the work was done by Pastor Schuckert, long time member Bro. Boldry, and many others. The first service was held in the new auditorium on August 9, 1992. Pastor Shuckert remained the pastor until being called into evangelism in 1993. He is currently the Pastor ofMt. Teman Baptist Church in Rockwood Mt., TN
