Featured Speaker: Dawn Smith Jordan

Dawn Smith Jordan is a Christian, speaker, musician, singer/songwriter, charting recording artist with Urgent Records, as well as a published author. She has recorded 17 CD’s and written 2 books. She is a former Miss South Carolina and 2nd Runner-Up to Miss America (1986). In 1985 her younger sister Shari was kidnapped and murdered, leading to the largest manhunt in South Carolina’s history, drawing national attention. Dawn earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Columbia College in 1986. Having grown up the daughter of a Baptist deacon daddy and choir singing mama, Dawn began her relationship with Jesus as her Lord and Savior at nine years old. When in her home church, she serves on the Women’s Ministry and Mentoring Teams of Newspring Church in Columbia, South Carolina.

She has performed and ministered in thousands of churches during the past 30+ years of ministry, as well as continuing to be featured on the Billy Graham Crusade Classics on the Inspirational Channel. You may have recently seen her story featured in a 2019 episode of “The Fuhrman Diaries” on the Fox Nation platform, or in January 2017 on “I, Witness” on the Investigation Discovery channel featuring her story in the premier episode entitled “The Smith Sisters.” She appeared twice on the 700 Club, in Reader’s Digest, The FBI Profiles on the Discovery Network, Forensic Files, In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, TLC’s “What Not To Wear’s Ms. Pageant Rewind” with Stacie Lundon, and more recently on “On the Case with Paula Zahn” on the Investigation Discovery Channel. She has been published in Lifeway’s Journey Magazine in their January and February 2014 issues. Grace so Amazing, her first book, is the true story of the tragic kidnapping and murder of her younger sister, originally published by Crossway Books. In it she speaks about the sufficiency of God’s grace, even to the point of forgiving the murderer. Her family’s story can currently be seen in the Netflix movie “Victim of Beauty” (originally entitled “Nightmare in Columbia County” on CBS and Lifetime.)

Dawn ministers in up to 75 events annually. She is the mother of 2 adult children, Hannah (and son-in- law Clayton) and Ross, and grandmother to 3 delightful grand dogs. She makes her home in Columbia, SC with her beloved dog and cat. She loves Jesus, sushi, the beach, laughter, and time spent with family and friends. She is passionate about sharing a word of hope to the hopeless from her own journey.
She considers it a great privilege to share her music and ministry out of the story God is weaving into her life. Her life Scripture is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
