Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. —Genesis 2:7

Shawn has been in full-time ministry for over 20 years serving in many areas such as youth pastor, college pastor, evangelist, missionary, professional sports chaplain and a church growth consultant.

In the late 90’s, Shawn went to the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry in Pensacola where he earned an associates degree in ministry and served full-time on the prayer team at the Brownsville Revival. He went on to become a youth pastor in Texas and Iowa. His youth ministry, Reality, experienced amazing growth going from 4 students to several hundred students in less than 2 years with outreaches topping over 1,000 students.

In 2004, Shawn founded Teen Unite, an evangelistic parachurch ministry uniting youth ministries together in cities across America for a united evangelistic event. Teen Unite reached thousands of High School students across the United States. Simultaneously, Shawn served as a professional sports chaplain, working with teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Desperados, Allen Wranglers, Texas Revolution and several other professional indoor football teams between 2000-2011.

BODY + BREATH is an Ignite Europe leadership initiative. Our goal is to equip church pastors and staff with principles for Spirit-filled leadership. Each masterclass or seminar focuses on a specific topic aimed at the practical (body) side of ministry or the supernatural (breath). Sessions are taught by the Ignite Europe team and visiting leaders and experts. Attendees will get Spirit-led, practical applications of the subject matter and will receive prayer for the Holy Spirit’s breath on their lives and leadership at each seminar. We believe leaders need both the anointing and the practical wisdom to fully carry out the call of God on their lives, ministries, and callings.

“Too often church leaders are simply headed from one meeting to another, one event to another, meeting budgets and trying to reach attendance goals. […] I want to invite you to think differently about the ministry you lead. After leading a ministry with 200 staff and 900 interns for 30 years with a 30-million-dollar annual budget, I want to share with you a phrase that I wish I had heard a long time ago: ‘Strategic leaders work on their organization, not in their organization.’ ” –DR. RON LUCE
