The Lord’s Obedient Servant
4 The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will. 5 The Sovereign Lord has spoken to me, and I have listened. I have not rebelled or turned away. 6 I offered my back to those who beat me and my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard. I did not hide my face from mockery and spitting. 7 Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will not be put to shame. 8 He who gives me justice is near. Who will dare to bring charges against me now? Where are my accusers? Let them appear! 9 See, the Sovereign Lord is on my side! Who will declare me guilty? All my enemies will be destroyed like old clothes that have been eaten by moths! 10 Who among you fears the Lord and obeys his servant? If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the Lord and rely on your God. 11 But watch out, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves by your own fires. This is the reward you will receive from me: You will soon fall down in great torment.

She has written four books, co-authoring two with Clayton: 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry and The Beauty and the Mystery. She and Clayton recently partnered with Lifeway to develop a curriculum for students called True Love Project (a relaunch of True Love Waits) in 2014 as well as her own book 40 Days of Purity for Girls as part of the True Love series.

His ministry is also dedicated to providing the resources needed to train youth leaders and their ministries to have a Gospel Advancing mindset.

Born in 1972, Clayton was put up for adoption by his 15 year old mother and was adopted by a loving family in the upstate of South Carolina. He sensed a call to ministry at the age of 14 and began speaking in churches, youth groups, and local prisons as a young teenager. As Secretary of the National Beta Club, he began speaking to secular audiences and developed communication skills as well as leadership abilities before entering college. As a Presidential Scholar at Gardner-Webb University, Clayton was President of the Honors Program and Alpha Chi, as well as the Outstanding Male Graduate of the Year in 1995. He now spends his time traveling, preaching and speaking in churches, conferences and leadership events, as well as running Crossroads/Clayton King Ministries, which is the non-profit organization he founded in 1995.

He experienced massive success on the football field, but maintains that his proudest accomplishment was earned in the classroom by being the first in his family to graduate from college. Upon graduation, he was then blessed to train in the National Football League. It was after completing his football career that Shep was propelled into his life’s work of delivering hope through his speaking to audiences around the world.
Today as an Entrepreneur, Keynote Speaker, and Transformation Coach… his passion, dedication, and commitment to growth has led him to achieving remarkable heights in the speaking industry. His devotion to seeing lives changed is undeniable as he connects deeply with people from all walks of life.

Dr. Jeff Bogue is a pastor whose passion is to help Jesus make sense to everyone. He became a Christ-follower as a junior in college. His passion for ministry comes from his own experience of searching for the mind and heart of God, and being completely changed by what he discovered.
Jeff is a graduate of Grace College and Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana. He’s had the privilege of sharing life with the people of Grace Church of Greater Akron, Ohio, for the past twenty-three years, where he leads 7 campuses with over 10,000 people calling Grace their home. Jeff is grateful he’s been able to take his life journey with such amazing people. He’s energized by leading the church to love and serve the people in their community.
Jeff and his soul-mate, Heidi, have been married for 23 years. They have five wonderful sons and one beautiful daughter. One of Jeff’s greatest joys is serving together with his family as they work to express God’s love all over the world. Wherever the Bogues go, they see not only a desperate need for the compassion and mercy of Christ to be expressed through the meeting of physical needs, but also for the hope of Christ’s message of salvation needed for the soul.
