Shann has a comfort in speaking God’s Word, to people inside and people outside the church.  Shann is known for his practical teaching style which helps people apply the timeless truths of Scripture to their everyday lives. He believes the Bible is the inspired word of God and that everyone should read it every day. His main point of teaching is that we have three rules to please God. We need to love the Lord God with all our heart, soul and mind, and we also need to love our neighbor as ourselves. (Matthew 22) With that love, we need to go out and create disciples.

 

He and his wife, Loris, have been married since 1982. They are the proud parents of three adult boys. Dylan, Joel, and Micah. They also have eight grandchildren.
