The Shelton brothers are two of the three adopted sons of Bishop S. McDowell Shelton (died 1991) of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, founded in 1933 by Sherrod C. Johnson. When their father died, Kenneth was elected the new bishop, but his election is bitterly disputed by two other church leaders, who are represented in the court case by Fincourt. The case has aroused considerable controversy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where it has its headquarters, and has occasioned violent confrontations even inside the church sanctuary.
