Shawn was born in Phoenix, Arizona, but spent most of his
life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. After seeing a great change when his
parents accepted Christ, he chose to make the same decision at 10 years old. He
attended WalkRight Baptist Bible Institute, a sister ministry to Camp CoBeAc,
where he began to feel God calling him to youth ministry, though he thought at
the time that would be specifically camp ministry.
Lauren was born and raised in Avon, Indiana. She accepted Christ at church camp when she was 9 years old. She grew up with Pastor Matt Phillips as her youth pastor. After spending some time at Maranatha Baptist Bible College, she finished her education at Indiana Baptist College, graduating in 2013. Shawn and Lauren met at Camp CoBeAc while working on summer staff. They were married on November 13, 2013. In February of 2014, Pastor Matt contacted them regarding a youth pastor position.ing of September of 2015, when Shawn officially became the youth pastor of Lisbon Baptist Temple.
