In 2019, the Goble Group launched the Kingdom Focused Summit (KFS) as an act of faith to bring Christian leaders, speakers, and educators from across the country to Central PA to share their insight, wisdom, and faith with our vibrant small business community around a relevant theme each year.
The Kingdom Focused Summit provides an opportunity for these businesses to come together as individuals or teams to learn, laugh, and network through faith, family and business.
Landis Hall at The Junction Center -- Doors Open 7:45am | KFS ends 12:30pm
Judy Shaffer and her husband Matt are the franchise owner-operators of both Chick-fil-A restaurants in Lancaster County. A Lancaster County native, Judy received her B.S. in Marketing from West Chester University, followed by her MBA from Lebanon Valley College while in the early stages of what would be an 11-year Marketing career at Auntie Anne’s Incorporated.
As Chief Marketing Officer for Auntie Anne's, she led the strategic re-positioning of the brand with the partnership of The Richards Group, an advertising agency who is credited with the famous Chick-fil-A Cows Campaign! It was then that Judy began to be inspired by the culture and values of this family-owned, Southern company called Chick-fil-A.
Fast forwarding to today, she leads an organization of over 200 employees across both restaurants, generating a combined annual sales volume of $20 million. Judy is deeply passionate about a few things - Chick-fil-A’s corporate purpose, authentic leadership, and keeping life centered around what matters most.
Judy and Matt are parents to two sons - Benjamin, who is attending Messiah University, and Wesley, who is in 10th grade in the Penn Manor school district.
Tim grew up as an "at risk" kid in the projects. He was raised by his mom who only had a 6th grade education and a prescription drug addiction but despite the odds, and by the grace of God, Tim has escaped poverty to become an entrepreneur, business coach, and national speaker.
Tim is the Founder of The Originators Guide and Vice President of Strategic Growth & Internal Coaching, Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group.

John Branyan stepped onto a tiny stage in the early 90’s when he thought his interest in comedy was just a phase; he thought he would get the whole thing out of his system. But, more than 25 years later, he still loves making people laugh with his style of speaking that won’t leave a filthy residue.
John is featured on nine recorded comedy projects with people like Ken Davis, David Jeremiah, Ted Cunningham and Tim Hawkins. John and his wife, Lori, have four children and seven grandchildren (so far).
When he isn’t speaking or teaching, he’s playing board games with his family.
