Main Stage Speaker
Scott Gilmore – Preparing Your Students for Life After College
Scott lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, with his wife of 27 years, Heather, and our son Josiah (age 7). We also have two adult children, Selah(Age 23) and Seth(Age 21). The Gilmores moved to Knoxville three years ago from Southern California, where Scott was a Fire Captain in Los Angeles County for 28 years. Scott came to know Christ in 1988 at age 21. The Gilmores attend Shoreline Church in Knoxville where Scott serves in Men’s Ministry as a Bible study leader. Heather and Scott also host a young married couple’s group every Wednesday evening in their home. Scott enjoys hiking, golf, and spending time with friends and family. Scott will be sharing what young college graduates can anticipate as they began “adulting” both spiritually and practically.
Paul Turner – Self-Care in Ministry
Paul is the Manager of Discipleship Intensives with the WinShape College Program. Before his time at WinShape, Paul earned a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and served at LifeWay along with local churches in Nashville, TN. Paul and his wife Sondra have two daughters and two grandchildren. Paul has completed almost 10 Iron Man Marathons! Many times, the last person we take care of is ourselves. During our time together, we will explore the need for taking care of ourselves spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. We will also talk about some practical ways to really care for our own selves.

He is married to his wife Sarah and has two daughters, Victoria and Avery. Nathan is also a Ph.D. student at Dallas Baptist University pursuing a doctorate in Higher Education Leadership.
