Frank Shelton shares humor, celebrity impressions, and captivating stories that exalt Christ and encourage Christians. He is passionate about winning souls for Christ - over 5,000 people have made decisions for Christ following Frank's mesages.
 
Some say Frank has a "way with words" and all agree that he has a heart for people. It has been said that Frank is one of the most gifted story tellers in America! Frank does much more than 'commuincate' - he 'CONNECTS' with crowds.
 
Frank speaks to nearly one million listeners per week on two Christian radio programs offering Hope, Humor, and Heaven on Earth. He has appeared as a guest on numerous television programs, including DayStar TV's Celebration with Marcus & Joni Lamb, sharing his testimony with 200 million viewers. Frank is founder of Celebate Jesus! Crusades and former vice president of National Christian Youth Speakers Network.
 
As an author, motivator, and national speaker, Frank has been blessed to share the stage with some of the most recognized names in the world and has spoken at events with a multitude of top Christian bands and artists. Frank is an encourager and a supporter of clergy and the local church.
 
Since childhood, Frank has dreamed about having a career either in Politics, Protecting the President or Preaching the Gospel around the world. At 36, Frank has been blessed to pursue all three vocations. By his 35th birthday, Frank had worked 17 years on Capitol Hill in various Congressional capacities. In 1995, he was appointed floor staff of the United States Senate, speechwriter for House Majority Leader of Congress, aide to Governor of Maryland, fundraiser for the Republican National Committee and volunteered in the Presidential Correspondence Office for both the Clinton and Bush White House, respectively. He has always viewed people as more important than political parties.
 
Frank's audiences enjoy this true story ... Frank's father was a fourth generation police officer in Washington, D.C., and he retired as Assistant Chief of the United States Capitol Police. Frank's ancestor was on duty at Ford's Theater on Good Friday 1865, the very evening President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. It was noted that he helped carry President Lincoln across the street where he died. Frank's family friend was a bodyguard to the late Elvis Presley. Frank's friend was invited to be a pallbearer at Elvis' funeral. Frank loves Joseph of Arimathea in the Scriptures. Frank's ancestor assisted in carrying the closest to the "King of a Nation" America will ever have because the Presidency is an institution, not an individual. Frank's family friend was invited to carry the "King of Rock and Roll." However, as Christians we carry "The King of ALL Kings (JESUS)" by our life and lips! It is one thing to carry "greatness" but entirely and eternally different when GREATNESS carries you!
 
On July 27, 2007, Frank walked away from his Capitol Hill career to step out in faith to address audiences all across America. In 2007, he presented 145 messages in 19 states! Frank has co-authored six books and his NEW book hits stores in August 2008 entitled "FINAL APPROACH - Career vs Calling? The foreword to this book was written by Carol Kent from WOMEN OF FAITH, House Majority Leader in Congress Steny Hoyer, and Evangelist Freddie Gage.
 
To date, Frank has appeared on television, radio, newspaper, billboards and was an "extra" in the final fight scene of "ROCKY BALBOA" starring Sly Stallone. In life, you may be "down, discouraged, defeated, depressed, have debt and know the stigma of divorce but if you are not dead than God is not done with you!"
 
Frank is PERFECT for both adult and teen audiences. He was the guest speaker at Six Flags America for Christian Day, addressed 7,000 at the Virginia Baptist Youth Evangelist Conference, and for the past three years Frank has preached on all three Praisefest Ministries "Cruise with a Cause" to the Bahamas - he and Josh McDowell are the only two speakers who have preached on all three of these cruises. At one of Frank's services on the cruise over 900 accepted Christ as Savior.
 
Frank is an ordained minister/evangelist and attended the Billy Graham School of Evangelism in Monterey, California. Frank speaks for corporate events, church services, revivals, youth rallies, school assemblies, city-wide crusades, cruises, and large outdoor Christian concerts ... and he enjoys the opportunity to speak at small country churches. It was never about "crowds" but always for Christ!
 
 Frank is married to Ruth, father to Hannah Grace and Andrew, and a child of the Most High God.

FINAL APPROACH
Career vs. Calling
 
A "career" is a JOB.
A "calling" brings JOY!
 
On the job, you make dollars.
In a career, you make a difference!
 
On the job, you simply "exist," Monday-Friday.
While chasing the "call" of career, you live life to the fullest!
 
Filled with true-life experiences, Final Approach: Career vs. Calling is part "Forrest Gump," part "Purpose Driven Life."
 
Carol Kent from "WOMEN OF FAITH" wrote the foreword: "Buy one for yourself and TEN more to give away!"
 
 
 

 
 
ATTACK on AMERICA
Fear vs. Faith
  
On the first anniversary of 9-11, Frank Shelton spoke in a church service about his experience of vacating his Capitol Hill office on that horrific day. Frank reminded the audience that with God, truly America's best days are still ahead.
 
Some have suggested that this message "pound for pound" was the "most powerful messages [we] have ever heard!" Frank's message - Attack on America: Fear vs. Faith - is filled with hope, humor, and Heaven-inspired quotes. This truly inspirational and Christ-centered message is perfect for patriotic church services and other patriotic gatherings.

What People Are Saying About Frank Shelton . . .
 
 
Frank Shelton has a passionate heart for the Lord and for the church. Use him - he will bless your people.
Dr. Johnny Hunt
Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia
 
Frank Shelton is my hero! Frank lives and breathes to share Jesus with the world. He is an amazing example of the abundant life and joy that Jesus came to give to all who are willing to receive. I love the guy!"
Andy Williams
Drummer, Casting Crowns
 
Frank Shelton is real. A real preacher, a real Bible teacher and a real friend. I have had the opportunity to work with Frank on many occasions and I was immediately touched by his heart for worship and giving spirit. His HUMOR and sincerity are matched only by his desire to honor Christ. During the darkest days of my life, when many in ministry "mocked" me, Frank was one of those who ministered to me. He is the real deal.
Michael English
Grammy Award Winner, "In Christ Alone"
Nashville, Tennessee
 
The grand story of our great God needs more men to share it. Frank Shelton is one of those men. Take a look at his background and listen to his journey and you hear it ... God is at work and He is advancing His kingdom! Frank makes much of Jesus and his ministry will empower you to do the same.
Tony Nolan, Tour Pastor for Casting Crowns
Woodstock, Georgia
 
Our changing world needs to hear the fresh voice of a true revivalist. That is Frank Shelton. His life and experience has given him the tools to address this culture in an insightful and relevant way! I know you will be blessed to have this dear brother speak at your special event or revival campaign. Frank was one of our speakers for the past two years at Praisefest Ministries Cruise with a Cause in the Bahamas . God is using this man to share the message of hope in Jesus Christ in a very effective manner. You will not regret extending an invitation to Brother Frank Shelton!
Jamey Ragle, Vice President of Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists
Woodstock, Georgia
 
Frank Shelton is a dynamic Christian speaker / evangelist with a message that is relevant to all ages. He is the "real deal." He is always willing to not just deliver an incredible message, but go into the schools and reach the next generation. At PRAISEFEST we have been blessed to bring in the very best Christian singers and speakers around the world. For the past three years, I have had Frank speak on our PRAISEFEST "Cruise with a Cause" in the Bahamas. One of the senior pastors on the ship was so impressed with Frank that he booked him to speak 15 messages in four days while speaking at his church at Fleetwood Baptist Church REVIVAL in Alabama . During the four night revival 81 adults and teens accepted Christ as their personal Savior. I had the pleasure to attend one of those services. I would strongly encourage you to consider having Frank at your church revival or one night event. He will deliver a word from God.
Matthew Dunaway, President of PraiseFest Ministries, Inc.
Mobile, Alabama
 
Sadly, much of "evangelism" in the Christian church today is not New Testament evangelism. Bill Hybles came to Texas 15 years ago and stated: "The days of revival and evangelistic crusades are over." Sadly, a lot of our young, gullible, naive preachers agreed with him. They didn't have a clue and many still don't. Ephesians 4:11 states: "And God gave some to be Evangelists." Frank Shelton, Jr.  has been called by God and chosen and has surrendered. His passion for souls is a bright light in the religious world filled with darkness. Without a doubt, the calling of God and the anointing of God are upon Frank's life. His passion for souls is a motivating factor in the life of every believer to be a "SOUL WINNER." I pray that God will use his new book "Final Approach - Career vs Calling?"  to set the multitudes on fire for Jesus. Frank has been blessed with tons of passion, energy, and a desire to honor God, encourage pastors, and bless the local church. Without hesitation, I recommend Frank Shelton to the precious people of your congregation and community.
Dr. Freddie Gage, Evangelist
Dr. Gage is second only to Billy Graham in leading people to Jesus in the Southern Baptist Convention
 
Frank Shelton has dramatically touched the lives of tens of thousands across the country. He has brought the grace and hope that Jesus Christ offers to a hurting world in a way that is conveyed as only Frank can communicate. His sincerity, humility, and humor soften hearts for the Holy Spirit to do his incredible work. He is a refreshing and encouraging minister who is being mightily used of the Lord.
Shannon Marketic, Miss USA 1992
Dallas, Texas
 
Frank Shelton has an incredible ministry! I had the pleasure of being on the Praisefest Ministries "Cruise with a Cause" to Bahamas with my husband and remember walking through the Royal Caribbean cruise ship and seeing a large crowd gather to lean over a balcony and listen to a man speaking below in the center of the ship. We joined them and were amazed! The man was on the bottom floor captivating this impromptu, walk-up audience with this BOOMING voice. People were gathered on four floors, leaning over balconies just to hear him speak. We didn't even know who he was at the time. He was engaging the audience with jokes and celebrity impersonations, but it wasn't long before he started sharing his personal testimony and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Before long, it seemed like the entire ship was hanging on his every word (including the Captain of the ship)! We later found out the man's name was Frank Shelton.
I also host the morning show for one of the largest contemporary Christian radio station, 93.7 WDJC in Birmingham, Alabama. When I returned to work I told my co-host about this engaging speaker with a heart for Christ. We booked him for an interview that was so much fun we continue to play segments of it to this day! He does the best impersonations including Billy Graham and former President Clinton . If you're considering booking a speaker for an event that will warm the crowd up while sharing the gospel and the love of God ... without question then Frank Shelton is the one to book! I strongly recommend him. Your group will love him!
Wendy Garner, Morning Show Host @ 93.7 WDJC FM
Birmingham, Alabama
 
In over 45 years of public service at both the state and national level, I can honestly say: Frank Shelton, Jr. is one of the most compassionate, decent, young men I have ever met. I wouldn't be surprised if he builds one of the biggest churches in Maryland one day.
U.S. Representative Steny H. Hoyer, House Majority Leader
Washington, D.C.
 
Not only is this man funny. He is entertaining. But by far his greatest gift is his heart. I have yet to meet anyone in my life who has the heart of Frank Shelton. Frank has been a dear friend for sometime now. Also nearly 15 years ago I remember meeting this sharp-dressed, soft-spoken guy from Waldorf, Maryland. Instantly, we had a bond that would lead us to many great times and memories. I can easily say that Frank Shelton is the most Christ-like person I know. The Lord Jesus Christ uses this man to share the Gospel in ways that will blow your mind! Frank [brings a] message from the very mouth of God.
Billy Griffin, PS 40 Crusade Organizer and Founder
LaBelle, Florida
 
Frank was AWESOME! Never have I seen a young man be able to speak to teens, adults, and senior citizens in such a manner that is both relevant and practical. Frank was superb on Sunday, March 16, 2008. God's anointing is surely upon him. With Frank's God-given talents and gifts, I believe that the Lord is going to use him in a mighty way. He is the best evangelist that I have heard since Billy Graham. His verbal style is so much like the written style of Max Lucado. (Both use a lot alliteration to make their points memorable and use little modern parables.) Lucado is one of the most popular Christian writers in the world today and Frank may well be on his way to becoming one of the most popular evangelists.
Anne Moore, 74-year-old church member at Stevenson United Methodist
Berlin, Maryland
 
I have been in the ministry for over three decades and Frank is the most naturally gifted person for ministry that I have ever met. God has truly blessed him.
Major Ron Harvell
Chaplain, U.S. Air Force

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

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 Shelton is truly a man of God. He preaches with great compassion and conviction. God has blessed him with the wonderful gift of communication and he uses it to reach all ages for Christ.
Rev. Dennis Felder
Senior Pastor, Dunkirk Baptist Church

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

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, Virginia

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
Crossroads Christian Church, Maryland

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)

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. Y ou 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 Univversity,
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.

What a pleasure and inspiration to meet you and hear about your work for the Lord around our Nation. ... 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. ... Keep up your faith and perseverance.
Fred "Woody" Caudle
First Baptist Church of St. Charles, Maryland

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!
