Councilman Stephen R. Shelley Awards Proclamation to Homestead Pastor Brock Shiffer

In recognizing those who have affected this community for the better, Councilman Stephen R. Shelley presented Pastor Brock Shiffer with a proclamation, in which Mayor Steven C. Bateman proclaims Thursday, August 22nd 2012 as Pastor Brock Shiffer Day.

Councilman Shelley congratulated the Pastor for his years of service in the Homestead Community. “Since serving with the Pastor on the Military Affairs Committee I have seen firsthand the difference, contributions and impact he regularly has on that committee and our community.”

Pastor Shiffer graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in political science, and holds a Master’s Degree in Theology and Divinity from the Miami International Seminary. He also served four years in the United States Air Force. For decades he has served in churches in the areas of South Dade, including Palmetto Bay, Cutler Bay, the Goulds area and more recently in Homestead. He is known locally in the civic community for serving in the Greater Homestead/Florida City Chamber of Commerce, the Military Affairs Committee and the Kiwanis Club of South Dade. The church he is currently pasturing is Speedway Community Church, where he frequently concludes his message with saying “Leave Homestead better off than we found it.”

After receiving the Proclamation, Pastor Shiffer commented on Hurricane Andrew and its impact on the Homestead community over 20 years ago. “It’s amazing what God has done in my life since Hurricane Andrew, the Bible teaches that what man considers bad, God means for good, and in retrospect the devastation brought on by Hurricane Andrew made us better neighbors.”
