"Frankly Speaking"
SPEAKING OF FRANK: Church References/Testimonials

"I have been in the ministry for over three decades and Frank Shelton is the most naturally gifted person for ministry that I have ever met. God has truly blessed him."
- Major Ron Harvell, Chaplain, USAF

"Outstanding presentation! I was really blown away; I was inspired, moved and awed. You have a real gift."
- Sam Glenn, National Youth Speaker, President of National Christian Youth Speakers Network & CharacterSpeaks.com

"It was my privilege to serve as Frank's youth minister while he was in High School, and see him grow and mature in the Christian faith. He has become one of the most sought after speakers of our area, and is truly making a difference in the lives of many for our Lord. He is a fine young man who lives and exemplifies the Christian lifestyle. God will certainly bless you and speak to you through having him."
- Rev. Jim Wood, Minister to Youth, Lake Ridge Baptist, Woodbridge, VA

“I have known Frank for some time now. He is a man dedicated to bringing young people to the knowledge of God through Jesus Christ. He is also a great motivational speaker. In any environment, Frank Shelton can deliver the goods with his God given talent of communication. Laughter is a great medicine and ministry. Frank has ministered to me many times through his books and recordings. I am a fan of Frank Shelton!”
- Ernie Haase, Dove Award Winner-tenor of Old Friends Quartet and the legendary Cathedrals Quartet- “Oh, What a Savior!”

"Frank is not just an ordinary minister of the Gospel. His ministry does not end at the pulpit like some I have known in the past; Frank Shelton lives the Gospel! I sincerely enjoy his company because I can truly see the love of God manifested in his personage. In August 2000, I asked Frank to share with our teens at "JAM FEST 2K" Youth Convention. The teens, as well as myself, were so grateful for him to share the Word along with Darrell Scott (father to slain Columbine student). Among the many gifts God has blessed him with, the one I think stands out the most is his ability to reach teens from many different denominations, cultures and styles. His humor, sound effects and sensitivity prepare the hearts of teens and adults for God to do a mighty work. I am convinced that wherever God sends Frank, he will prosper in the Lord. Not because of his own natural talents but because he has learned to allow God to move through him."
- Pastor Shawn Holcomb, Youth Minister at Crossroads Christian Church, Maryland

"Frank is both a powerful preacher and a gifted teacher. His impersonation of Dr. Graham is amazing!"
- M. Holmquist, Billy Graham School of Evangelism

"Rev. Frank Shelton has been widely used as a revival speaker, seminar speaker, pulpit supply, retreat leader and conducted revivals in our association as well as across the Country. He is a great communicator of the Gospel, effectively using humor, personal antidotes and Biblical content. I have known Frank for the past nine years as a fellow member of the same church, as a youth staff leader in two churches, associate pastor of evangelism and as a leader of our Associational Youth Network. Frank is committed to personal evangelism and God has used him to draw many adults and youth to Christ."
- Dr. Richard Logsdon, Director of the Potomac Baptist Association

"Dunkirk Baptist Church is very fortunate to have Frank on staff."
- Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie, Chaplain of the United States Senate

"I have known Frank Shelton since he was a college student at Charles County Community College (now known as The College of Southern Maryland). Frank was involved in college Bible study I led on campus and eventually, he was elected President of our group. Frank was faithful, diligent, prompt and God-honoring in his leadership, and our group grew to its best attendance ever under his influence. However, more important was the person Frank was outside of the group. As long as I have known Frank, he has been consistent in his devotion to and love of our Lord. The strength of his convictions, his moral integrity, his love for people and his passion for Jesus have made a lasting impression on all who know him. His desire to reach people who don't yet know Jesus is real and his life lines up with his words. I pray that God will open doors for Frank and use him for his purposes in our world."
- Rev. Randall Acord, Senior Pastor, White Plains Baptist Church

"Frank is the "Preacher's Preacher!" In our 16 years of ministry, Frank stands out as one of the most dynamic young men we have ever had. His preaching is unusual- he uses humor and impersonations with his Spirit-filled messages. He also has a tender heart for the lost! You will be refreshed to hear a young man filled with enthusiasm and a sweet love for the Savior! You will want him back again and again!"
- Marvin Harris, Founder of "Tuesday Night Live." (TNL is the largest Singles' Bible Study in Southern Maryland). Marvin is father-in-law to Steven Mason of "Jars of Clay."

"Frank preached at our church three years ago and we are still talking about his message!"
- Hughesville Baptist Church

"Evangelist Frank Shelton is an effective communicator to all generations. He was key to our revival service; which included six baptisms; several salvation experiences, and led our church a deeper commitment to the Lord. You and your church will be blessed by the spiritual gift Brother Shelton brings on behalf of the Lord."
- Dr. Dan Moore, Senior Pastor, Callaway Baptist Church

"When Frank preaches you can literally see the love of our Lord in his eyes!"
- Rodney Wilson, Monroe, North Carolina

"I would drive 50 miles every Sunday just to hear you preach."
- Visitor at Greenbelt Baptist Church, Maryland

"Frank Shelton is God's politician."
- Dr. M. Christopher White, President of Gardner-Webb Univ. Boiling Springs, North Carolina

"It has been my pleasure and honor to attend and participate in many of Frank Shelton's meetings and to witness the tremendous effectiveness of his entire ministry; particularly where young people are involved. As a Christian businessman and experienced church leader, I can attest to his sincerity, his compassion for the lost souls and his ability to encourage repentance and maintain a proper relationship with Christ. Frank is gifted with a warm, friendly and convincing personality that is demonstrated in his inspirational public speaking ability. I have attended many of his revivals and invited him to speak on numerous occasions at the Charles County Rotary Club in Southern Maryland. I first heard him speak at an UPWARDS BASKETBALL Christian Awards Banquet at First Baptist Church of Waldorf and over 65 teens made professions of faith following his remarks. I consider it a privilege to heartily recommend my good friend, Frank Shelton for any Christian endeavor or civic function. He would be a tremendous asset to any organization."
- Kenneth A. Gould, Sr., owner and operator of Gould Restaurants featuring Roy Rogers and personal friends with the late Roy Rogers & Dale Evans.

"Wow!!! Praise the Lord!!!"
- Sandy Howard, church member, Indian Head Baptist, MD

"What a pleasure and inspiration to meet you and hear about your work for the Lord around our Nation. We were hoping to come see you at First Baptist Church of St. Charles this Saturday, but we did not get back to Waldorf in time to make the service. But, we will keep in tune with your WEB site and hope to find you somewhere in this area again soon. Our prayers will continue to be with you, your family and your ministry. We are excited about the harvest of souls that await you as you present His Word and love in the most effective and creative way. For the King...for the Kingdom!"
- John & Glenda Shepela, Director of Music Ministries, White Hall Baptist
Church, Accokeek, Maryland

"What a blessing to hear and see God working through you this weekend at our revival service. You came at a very critical time in our church life when much healing is needed. I personally heard God speaking to me to do more, have stronger courage in faith in time of persecution and attacks- and most importantly, don't give up in doing God's work no matter how much individuals attack and persecute you. I have never heard you prior to this weekend (except for the Christmas service with Kingdom Baptist) and you are truly a gift from God. Keep up your faith and perseverance. I look forward to hearing about your blessings in ministry."
- Fred "Woody" Caudle, church member, First Baptist Church of St. Charles, MD

"Frank speaks with a heart of compassion. He has a genuine interest in people and is passionate about communicating with people of all ages to live a life of character and follow Christ. Frank's stories grab your attention because they are deep and thought provoking. Frank also has a wonderful gift of humor and doing impersonations that will make audiences laugh until they cry!"
- Gina Waegele, 1998 Miss Colorado, Friends First, National Mentor Program Director, National Inspirational Speaker

"I saw you speak at the youth rally concerning abstinence this past fall in Lusby, MD at "MY VOW: Maryland Youth Voicing Our Wait." I wanted you to know that you tied up a lot of lose ends for me and that you had a positive powerful affect on my children. I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"When Frank Shelton came to speak at my school, he made a lasting impression on the students who attended his presentation. As a leader of Chopticon High School's STUDENT IMPACT, I was extremely impressed by Frank's message and my group's reaction to his words. As Mr. Bloch, one of the teachers who attended the presentation, said, "His message was great for students, and even adults. He presented his points in a fun and less intimidating manner, that kept the students' attention and left a lasting impression." Personally, I also enjoyed Frank's message. I had heard him speak before, and he once again did an AWESOME job when he spoke at my school. His love for teenagers, great jokes, hilarious impressions, and passion for the topic he is presenting makes his messages motivating and effective.
Sara LaRose
Junior at Chopticon High School

"Frank is the man! As President of St. Mary's Ryken Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), I invited Frank to address our students on leadership and character. He was AWESOME! Frank was the best speaker we had ALL year and he inspired everyone to become better business leaders. More important, he taught us to become better people! His jokes are great, his impersonations incredible but you can tell that he is really sincere and that is what attracts so many to him."
Suketu Shah
President of FBLA, senior at St. Mary's Ryken

"For the past three consecutive years we have invited Frank to be our commencement speaker. Frank has visited on multiple occasions: Career Day, representative of Congressman Hoyer and when he worked as aide to Maryland Governor Parris Glendening. We asked Frank to speak to the students on leadership and character and he received a standing ovation! To get 600 fourth and fifth graders on their feet is nothing short of amazing! When asked whom they wanted to speak at their graduation ceremony every year it has been a unanimous: "Make sure you get Frank!"
