GREENVILLE – Greenville Christian & Missionary Alliance Church is excited to announce the arrival of its new Associate Pastor, Shawn Harrison, and his family. New to the area, Shawn and his wife, Emily, have three kids: Gloria (12), Aidan (10), and Joshua (3). Since 2002, Shawn has been a full time youth pastor, working in churches in Indiana and Pennsylvania, where he was born and raised. He attended Taylor University, Fort Wayne, IN and graduated in 2009 with a BA degree in Pastoral Ministries.
In October 2013, Shawn became a licensed pastor with the Christian & Missionary Alliance denomination, and is currently working towards his ordination. At Greenville C&MA, Shawn oversees the children’s ministry, the newly developed student ministry (grades 6-12), the church’s Outreach Team, and leads a men’s discipleship group at his home. Shawn is also a leader with the local Youth for Christ chapter that meets at his church Monday nights from 7-9pm.
Shawn and Emily are excited to be at Greenville C&MA, saying, “We know God has big plans for our church and the city of Greenville. We are pumped to be a part of what God is doing in and through His people.” Besides spending time together with family and friends, Shawn and Emily both like meeting new people, missions, music, reading, and movies. Recently, Shawn published his first book for church leaders and families, “Ministering to Gay Teenagers,” by Group/SYM. He weekly writes his own blog and for other ministry outlets.
Shawn passionately invites everyone to “come and be a part of what’s happening at Greenville C&MA!” On Sunday mornings, the Adult Bible study meets at 9 a.m., and Worship begins at 10, with Kids Worship at 10:15 a.m. On Wednesday nights, a prayer gathering meets at 7 p.m., and on Thursdays, a men’s discipleship group meets at Shawn’s home.
