Hey! Welcome to my family blog.

I am a husband to Deanna and father of seven – four girls and three sons. Totally blessed.

I absolutely love playing with new technology and am very much at home on the online playground.

I am a worship leader, musician and singer/song-writer, playing on stage and in many venues since early junior high school. Check out my artist page at ShawnMichael.org.

I am a part-time graphics artist, videographer, web designer and communications specialist. Visit my portfolio and business site at TheShawnShoup.com.

I have also been actively involved in student and family ministries for 18 years, a graduate of Christ for the Nation Institute’s Advanced School of Youth Ministry. Starting in the summer of 2018, Deanna and I were installed as lead pastors of Destiny Foursquare Church in Rapid City, SD.

You can connect with me online via several social networks and more on my About.me profile. You can also contact me directly at shawn@elevatingageneration.org.
