IMN Summit 2016: Forward

Register Here

…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Phil. 3:12-14

Zollie Smith

Zollie L. Smith, Jr., was elected executive director of Assemblies of God U.S. Missions at the 52nd General Council in August 2007. He is a member of the Executive Leadership Team and Executive Presbytery. Smith coordinates the ministries of seven departments: Chaplaincy Ministries; Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, U.S.A.; Intercultural Ministries; Missionary Church Planters and Developers; U.S. MAPS; Teen Challenge International, U.S.A.; and Youth Alive. Currently, there are more than 950 missionaries and more than 600 endorsed chaplains serving under AGUSM, with 5,000 other related field personnel.

Prior to leading U.S. Missions, Smith served as the executive presbyter representing the Ethnic Fellowships and as president of the National Black Fellowship. He served the New Jersey District Council of the Assemblies of God as assistant superintendent (1998–2002) and as executive secretary (2005–07).

Smith served as pastor of Eternal Life Christian Center (ELCC) of the Assemblies of God, Somerset, New Jersey for 15 years. During his pastorate, the church grew to more than 300 members and completed a $2 million educational enrichment center. Prior to ELCC, Smith pioneered a church that later became Plainfield Assembly of God, a New Jersey district affiliate church.

Smith holds a master’s degree in business management with emphasis on nonprofit organizations from Regent University, a bachelor’s degree in criminology and criminal justice from Florida State University, an associate of arts degree from St. Petersburg Jr. College, a diploma in ministerial studies from Berean Bible College, and was awarded an honorary doctorate in theology from Northwest University, Kirkland, WA, in 2008. Smith has spent his life in service as a former police officer/detective, U.S. Postal Inspector, and Airborne infantryman in the Vietnam War where he was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Smith and his wife, Phyllis of over forty years, have six daughters and five grandchildren.

LandonLandon Schott

Landon Schott has grown up in the house of God all his life. He had an unusual upbringing; he preached his first sermon in Itarsi, India at fourteen years old. At sixteen he began to preach full time and by eighteen he was ordained as a youth pastor.

At age twenty he met his beautiful wife, Heather, and was married two years later on July 16, 2005. Over the next few years they dedicated their full time and attention to the young people across America. Together, they were youth pastors in mega churches across the country. They traveled doing youth conferences, camps and crusades bringing the truth and knowledge of Jesus Christ to young and old alike.

Judges 2:10, “another generation grew up, who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel.” Landon desires to bring the young people of this nation back to the place where they not only know about God, but also have a personal relationship with him.

Landon and his wife Heather founded The Rev Ministries in 2008, a media ministry that airs TV programs, Second Take and The Evo Show internationally.

In 2012 Landon and Heather launched REVtv.com a 24/7 online youth & young adult network dedicated to turning the heart of a generation to Jesus through Christ centered media.

Landon and Heather have one daughter: Payton Olivia Lynn. They plan on growing their own family as they work hard to grow God’s family. Their mission in life is simple, to make Jesus famous!

Dan Miller

Superintendent Dan Miller answered the call to ministry fifty years ago and has never looked back to the successful business and political career he left behind. He is a graduate of Kenosha Bible Institute and Trinity Bible College, has pastored at Sheldon Full Gospel tabernacle, Wahpeton Assembly of God and currently Blueroof Church, St. Joseph, Michigan where he has pastored for the past twenty-eight years. In addition to pastoring, he served for ten years as the Business Manager and Campus Pastor at Trinity Bible College in North Dakota.

Prior to being elected District Superintendent of the International Ministry Network nine years ago, he served as Secretary/Treasurer for fourteen. In addition he serves as a General Presbyter and on the Assemblies of God US Missions Board. Superintendent Miller’s vision “is to see Jesus Christ proclaimed to the corners of the globe.”

Steve & Mary Beth Bradshaw

Steve and Mary Beth Bradshaw have been mentoring couples for over 30 years.  Every marriage has “ups and downs.”  Steve and Mary Beth have been working through the seasons of connecting and disconnecting since they were married in 1984.

Their ministry is marked by transparent communication about their own struggles and victories.  They understand how opposite personality and gender issues create both attraction and conflict.  It is from this awareness they have discovered principles that make every marriage stronger.

Fun.  That is the one-word description that describes a marriage session with Steve and Mary Beth.  They intersperse some of the most embarrassing moments of their life with interaction and learning opportunities.  Everywhere they travel they constantly hear, “When can you come back?”

The Bradshaws have over 30 years of pastoral experience.  They also share their lives with two children, Weston and Brianna, and one dog, Gabi.  Though Mary Beth adores all three, Steve is not a dog lover.
