Shelby leads with Faith. He steadfastly believes most; if not all, of the problems facing Ohio and the United States would be solved with a return to Christian values.
Shelby was taken to the First Christian Church of Amarillo, Texas (Disciples of Christ) by his Reverend grandfather Andres Delgado as a child and at the age of thirteen accepted Christ as Savior, with a public affirmation through water baptism.
But, through the course of his twenties and thirties, stopped attending church and lived a “successful” yet worldly life. Thankfully, in his forties, Shelby had a personal revival experience that got him back-on-track with the Lord.
Now in his fifties, Shelby has the benefit of 20/20 hindsight and the revelation God has been the answer the whole time. Shelby is currently an active member of Pickerington Baptist Temple (Independent Baptist).
Based on his faith, Shelby believes life begins at conception and supports the anti-abortion efforts of Ohio Value Voters and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s Life at Conception Act.
