Before being ordained and called to pastor at Alexander, Pastor Shawn was a member of Alexander. While he was still a member, he left to play college baseball in Florida for nearly 2 years. Baseball has always been one of Shawn’s greatest passions (it still is!). After those 2 years, he returned from Florida and accepted a job as our part-time Pastoral Associate. Nearly a year later, he was ordained and called as our full-time Student Pastor. Pastor Shawn received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Religion with a focus in Biblical and Theological Studies from Liberty University Online and is currently pursuing his Master of Divinity Degree in Theology from Liberty University Online. He is married to his wife Christian. He enjoys baseball, football, golf, reading, writing, coffee, Christmas, theology, and Tom Brady.
