Many people can manufacture music, but not everyone can produce songs of the heart. Songs of the heart make an impact on the listener, but more than that, they honor the Lord. As Shelly sings, her heart for the Lord is revealed, He is exalted and others are drawn to Him.
The National Fellowship of Raceway Ministries has been blessed to have Shelly Wilson as a part of our team. Her music and ministry have been a great asset to many Raceway Ministries groups across the country.
Shelly Wilson seeks Jesus in all she does. She goes to Him for every answer…and she waits. She waits for Him to reveal the plan He has for her, and that plan has been amazing. I first met Shelly (many years ago) in a small town in Kansas at an Advancing the Kingdom Festival. I was drawn to her love for the Lord and her love for the Word of God. It is that passion that leads Shelly to share this love affair she has with the Lord with us…to encourage us to draw closer to Him.
Shelly is a determined, disciplined prayer warrior who fervently prays for His direction in every area of her life. She is not afraid to ask her Father for anything. When I first met Shelly, she was an anointed singer, but she was always a little disappointed that she couldn’t (or so she thought ) write those songs that were stored up in her heart. Wow…next time I talked to her, He had answered her prayer! Those songs were pouring out of her heart…songs about her love for Him, about how awesome and Holy our Savior truly is. Shelly’s songs encourage us to live right, to love one another, and she sings about that on-going love affair she has with Jesus.
The Lord has led Shelly to sing, record a couple of great albums, start Drama Queens Ministries, publish a magazine, develop a line of Christian apparel and a new fragrance. The Lord just keeps growing Shelly as she reaches out with His message of love and of hope. I know this has all been His plan for her.
This has all been leading up to her newest venture, Immeasurably More Women’s Retreats. I can’t wait to attend! Shelly gives her testimony speaking openly and practically about her struggles and heartaches so others may apply what she has learned and how she found the answers right at her fingertips, in His Holy Word.
I am so blessed to know Shelly as my sister in Christ.

OUR COMMUNITY IS STILL TALKING ABOUT THE AWESOME EXPERIENCE OF BEING ENCOURAGED AND CHALLENGED DURING ‘LAVISH WORSHIP’ WITH KERRI CROCKER AND SHELLY WILSON. WE EXPERIENCED MEMORABLE HEARTFELT WORSHIP WITH TRUE SERVANTS OF THE LORD. THEY ARE A BLESSING AND SWEET WITNESS TO THE LORD’S GRACE, MERCY AND DESIRE TO SHOW WOMEN WHO HE IS THROUGH THEIR PERSONAL TESTIMONIES AND WORSHIP.

”Shelly Wilson and Kerri Crocker are truly anointed. Their music is great, but their testimony and their love of Jesus is what truly shines through. Your church family or organization will definitely be blessed when you invite them in.”
Pastor Royce Gregory – LifeBrand Cowboy Church – Painesville, Ohio
The mission at First United Methodist Church in Middlefield, Ohio is “To reach out in Christ’s love offering His hope to all.” When you invite a couple of Christian singer/songwriters to your church to perform, you never know whether he or she will uphold that mission or not. I’m writing to highly recommend Kerri Crocker and Shelly Wilson, who abundantly met that high expectation for our community and church. While their music was honest and sincere and well-performed and their ministry was evident, we got to truly see their heart for the Lord “after” they stepped off the stage. In a reception that followed the concert, both ladies mingled in the crowd and effectively touched the lives of so many who came merely to listen to some good music. What they received in bonus was a touch of the Holy Spirit as Kerri and Shelly gave of their time and actually “were” the hands and feet of Jesus among His people. One person remarked, “If you can’t see Jesus in those two girls, you must be blind.” The members of First United Methodist Church can’t thank them enough for coming and helping to extend our mission beyond the stage and into the world of doubt, anxiety, grief, and pain. We know the angels were singing and Jesus was smiling, and you will be as well should your church be graced by their presence as we were.
