Kerry Shook. Kerry Shook is an imaginative and unpredictable preacher. Beginning with eight people, he now sees 15,000 people attend Fellowship of the Woodlands on weekends, and some pack an extra pair of shoes.

Several years ago, Shook learned from area shelters that shoes and underwear were the two biggest needs of homeless people. After preaching a sermon about the poor, Shook challenged attendees to leave their shoes on the platform if they felt led to do so. By the time the weekend services were finished, the church had collected more than 4,500 pairs of shoes.

Talk about unpredictable! Talk about verbal, visual, and interactive communication!
