CHOG Convention 2015: Sheila Walsh Announced
By Carl Stagner
A deeply personal struggle. A loving Redeemer. A life once battered and scarred by depression—now reclaimed in Jesus’ name! This is the story of Sheila Walsh, Scottish-born singer-speaker-author noted for her four million books sold and her appearances on the Women of Faith tour. Out of her story flows honest reflections on God’s unconditional love and mercy. It is with great excitement that Church of God Ministries announces Sheila Walsh as a speaker for Church of God Convention 2015, topping off a list of incredibly gifted speakers, including Francis Chan, Anita Renfroe, Andy Thompson, Gillian Grannum, Steve Rennick, Steve Southards, and Jim Lyon.
Sheila Walsh comes to Church of God Convention for the first time, with great anticipation for the Holy Spirit’s ministry through her teaching. Her passion for the reclamation and transformation of lost and struggling souls is only matched by her personal dedication to Jesus Christ and her family. Suffering in the throes of depression, this breakout contemporary Christian singer of the 1980s and ’90s found herself alone, confused, and ostracized—even by some in the Christian community. Though on the outside she appeared to have it all together, on the inside, an unrelenting war was waging.
Looking back on her journey through the valley, Sheila recognizes the ever-present hand of a loving heavenly Father. Her ministry, often exercised in packed houses at Women of Faith events, has been shaped by her long journey and her genuine encounter with grace. The Church of God will no doubt be blessed by her profound words of soul-deep origin.
Hear Sheila Walsh on Tuesday, June 23, during the evening service which will begin at 7:00 PM. For more information about Church of God Convention 2015, online registration, and downloadable promotional material, visit www.chogconvention.org.
