I have a heart for seeing young adults live authentically and passionately as followers of Jesus.

Meet Benjie Shaw
Raised an Army brat, I now call Watkinsville, GA home with my wife, two kids, and horse-sized dog.
I'm on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Georgia. Previously, I worked with a different campus ministry organization at UGA, Middle Tennessee State, and in Memphis, TN for almost 9 years.
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, trying new recipes, and doing my best to match my kids' energy levels.
