I have a heart for seeing young adults live authentically and passionately as followers of Jesus.
I desire to see churches and communities that intentionally raise up devoted, resilient young leaders who will impact their churches, communities, country, and world with radical, everyday faithfulness to Christ. Parents and grandparents play a critical role in this process.
Meet Benjie Shaw
Raised an Army brat, I now call Memphis, Tennessee home with my wife, two kids, and horse-sized dog.
I have worked in campus ministry contexts for almost 10 years through Baptist Collegiate Ministries in Memphis, Murfreesboro, TN, and Athens, GA.
I'm a graduate of Georgia Southern University (go Eagles!) and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. In my free time you can find me juggling 4-6 books at a time, eagerly expecting the next Marvel movie, exercising in my garage gym, trying new recipes, and doing my best to match my kids' energy levels.
