SPEAKERS - Shawn and Jill Kook
Pastor Shawn Kook is our primary speaker for this year's conference. After spending eleven years in commercial finance and heavily involved in our local church, the Lord called him into pastoral ministry as Assistant Pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Georgia where he served for over nine years. He finished a Master's degree during that time and has an MDiv in process. He has been serving as the Senior Pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Davison, Michigan since 2014, where we also operate a Christian school of about 250 students.
Shawn will be joined by his wife Jill, who will do a split session with the ladies and also be a part of our Q&A panel on Saturday. Jill's background was also in finance as she holds a degree in Accounting and passed her CPA exam in 1996. She currently teaches music and piano lessons at FBS. Shawn and Jill have four children: Carson (20), Colman (17), Kristen (15), and Kallie (10).
