3ABN Board Elects a New President


After seven and a half years of leadership, 3ABN president and CEO, Jim Gilley, felt it was time to retire, and on July 20, 2015, he informed 3ABN’s Administrative Committee of his decision.

Soon after, 3ABN’s board of directors met, and at that time, Jim submitted his letter of resignation. 3ABN’s board accepted his resignation with best wishes for his future.

Danny Shelton was nominated to serve as 3ABN’s president and CEO, and was elected by unanimous vote. Bruce Fjarli was also elected as the new chairman of the board.

All of us here appreciate the years of service given to 3ABN by Jim and Camille Gilley, but as Jim so eloquently said as he addressed the staff, “‘To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven,’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1) and it is time for me to step down as president.”

We hope you will join us in prayer for Jim and Camille as they move in a new direction in life.

    • Lanny McCauley

      I sure agree as the programming expanded so well under Pastor Jim Gilley's and God's leadership. I ask God of all Creation to bless and help Danny take 3ABN into the last countries of the earth. That will open the way for our Savior's return.

    Jesus is coming soon, Congratulation Pastor Jim Gilley for the new challenge in 3ABN.

  7. Art Miles

    God bless Jim Gilley, and he "retires". He will be missed, but he desires retirement. I imagine he will not really retire, but continue to do God's work.

  8. Pamala Gumm

    Sad to see Jim and Camille go God bless. So happy to have Danny back and our prayers will be with 3abn that Gods blessings will continue until Jesus soon return. Thank you to everyone at 3abn for their steadfastness in continuing to proclaim the three angels message.

    God is faithfully in control. 3ABN moved me straight into Pastoral Ministry. Though I am still at school, it has contributed a lot for my acceptance of God's call. This was made easy especially by 3ABN Today where different people kept on sharing how God has called them into ministry. God bless Jim and Camille for the wonderful work God has used to do. God will carry you through another phase of ministry as we prepare to meet the Lord in the air soon and very soon. Danny, I'm certain that God has appointed you at this very time. The work He started in you as a founder He wants to wrap it up NOW. 3 angels message MUST be preached to the world and Jesus will come. God bless you and the whole 3ABN team in Jesus name.

    I have always been blessed by Jim Gilley's leadership on 3ABN. His congregations over his years of being a pastor have obviously been truly blessed by his humbleness. Best wishes for Jim and Camille in their resting years awaiting Jesus' soon coming.

  26. Rosamond Farrell

    I will miss Jim very much. Both he and Camille have been a blessing. I wish them God's guidance and direction for their future.

  27. Joyce Sellers

    We will miss you both very much. God Bless you Jim and Camille in what ever you choose to do. God will continue to use you while you are still around, you can't hide and retirement is only for those who rest in the Lord. He would never let the good ones just ride off into the sunset. Seriously, may the Lord bless you and keep you, and make His face shine upon you, and give you His peace.

    Never before in modern times has God chosen a better man for such an important task at such a needed time as He did when He chose Jim Gilley to serve as president of 3ABN. I thank God for the service you have given to God and His Church under some of the most trying circumstances Jim. God has blessed you and Camille in so many ways. Take care of yourself. Enjoy yourself in retirement. Neither of you will be ever be forgotten. May God bless the continued work of 3ABN.
