Shelby has always been a musician, but serving the Church is his passion. After he was saved in 2010 while serving as a volunteer in the worship ministry of The Journey Church in Boca Raton, Florida, he followed God's plan to lead him into ministry. He received his music training at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood California, taught at a private school in Kensington, Maryland, and was a performer with many nationally known artists. All were part of God’s plan to build his leadership skills, and develop his knowledge of the music industry, to put him in a position of leadership in God’s Temple. Shelby is married to Debbi Rael and has 5 grown children and are adopting their 2 grandchildren. Shelby and Debbi are foodies and enjoy regular walks on the beach, night walks through Downtown Stuart with an ice cream cone, and spending time with family.
