Rev. Tim Dowdy
Rev. Tim Dowdy is no stranger to Shingleroof, and we are blessed to have him come this year and fill the pulpit for our Monday morning service. Tim is the Senior Pastor of the Eagle's Landing First Baptist Church here in McDonough. We are very happy to have him preach for us, and encourage everyone to come out on Monday and be blessed by his message. We find it interesting that Tim wanted to be a professional basketball player when he was in high school. Competed in an Ironman with his son. And as he has listed on the church website, he secretly wants to be Indiana Jones. We look for ward to hearing from Tim.
Rev. Rick Maeser (Host Pastor)
Rev. Rick Maeser is the senior pastor of the McDonough First United Methodist Church. This will be Rev. Maeser's second year hosting Shingleroof, and we look forward to his leadership once again during the 20145 encampment. Rev. Maeser was born and raised in Georgia, and grew up in the Palmetto UMC. He is an Eagle Scout, and graduated from the Newnan High School with the class of 1974. He attended and graduated from LaGrange College, earning his Bachelor of Arts in Religion in 1978. He then attended and graduated for the Candler School of Theology at Emory University with a Master of Divinity in 1981. He has served as Chairperson of the Northwest District on Ordained Ministry, 2007-2013; and is currently serving on the North Georgia Conference Board of Ordained Ministry. Rev. Maeser enjoys running, and participates in 5K events. (Look for him around the campground with the other runners.) He is married to Nell, a graduate of Centenary College in Shreveport, LA with a BSW in Sociology; and a graduate from the University of Georgia with a Masters in Social Work. They have two children, Philip who is in the 10th grade and plays the piano and the saxophone, and Lydia who is a 2014 graduate of LaGrange College and plays flute. It is good to have Rick back with us this year.
Mr. Doug Stroup
We are blessed to have Doug
Stroup come and to be our song leader for 2016. Doug has been with us many
times in the past providing special music on his own, with his family of
singers, and more recently with the Peach State Quartet. Doug was saved at
the age of 10 and started singing for the Lord that same year. He and his wife,
Amy, met at church and were married in 1988. They have been blessed with
seven children, Doug, Andy, Anna, Dora, Amelia Grace, Amanda Joy and Della Rose.
Doug became the new owner of The Peach
State Quartet in 2009 when the previous owner, Tom Cabaniss, went home to be
with the Lord. Doug considers it an honor and a privilege to carry on the legacy
and ministry of the group. His favorite scripture verse is Hebrews 12:2.
Doug will be joining us on Sunday and lead us through the week.
Also helping this year.... Our own Ben Studdard will lead our songs from Friday Evening until Doug arrives. Thank you Ben.
Ms. Melissa Hensel
On the piano for the entire week, we welcome back Melissa Hensel. For many at Shingleroof, Melissa is as much a part of this week as putting your feet in the cool waters of the spring. We have counted on her for so long, we are just not sure what we would do without her. Melissa has been playing the Shingleroof piano now for more than 30 years, and we are very blessed to have her as part of our campmeeting experience.
Ms. Amy May
We always have plenty of fun things for the kids to do at Shingleroof. This year we are excited to welcome back Ms. Amy to Shingleroof to lead the children's activities. We want all of the kids to come down to the pavilion every weekday afternoon at 2:00 for a fun time of crafts and games led by Ms. Amy. Ms. Amy May joins us again this year and has a lot of things planned for your children. Who will be the first to burst a water balloon on Ms. Amy?
Special Music for all Services
Music will be provided by many soloists, local groups and choirs from the community. We are excited to welcome back our choirs that have been singing for Shingleroof for many years now, and thank them for their continued service. We also welcome back The Jonesmen Quartet, Honey Creek, and The Peach State Quartet; and we look forward to having them share their music with us again. More to come so check back.
VIDEOS from 2014 encampment will be available on a first come, first served basis
