Rev. Jake Deshler
We are glad to have Jake Deshler with us this year. Jake is the Minister to Students at First Baptist in Jonesboro. Jake says, "I have come to understand that in life I am an includer. Not just a normal communicator, but one of who seeks people out instead of waiting to be sought after. My life and career are directed toward Christian Ministry. I use my passions to connect with others, build relationships, show others what true life (and living it to the full) really looks like. When there are problems, I enjoy the challenge of overcoming and restoring. My goal is to work in ministry and serve others so that they may see the life of Jesus through mine. I strive to put others first and dedicate myself to sharing the gospel. I am excited by new challenges and tasks." Jake's has a new task as he joins the preaching team here at Shingleroof for 2019. We welcome Jake and thank him for being with us this year.

Mr. Doug Stroup
We are blessed to have Doug Stroup come and to be our song leader
again this year. 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 able to lead our singing for the
entire week this year.
Welcome back Doug.
Welcome back Doug.
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.
Seth and Amy Berkebile

In the past during college breaks, Seth worked in the churchís after school program. While in college, he was a part of Campus Outreach where he led bible studies and discipleship groups. During Amyís time in college, she served a church working with the children in the nursery.
