Pastor Shawn Holmes
I was born and raised on Fogo Island, Newfoundland, where I lived with my parents and sister. Attending the local church was a training ground for me, and I learned the truths of God word as a young boy. At the age of twelve, I started to become involved in many activities such as music, youth, discipleship, and have always been active in some aspect of ministry in the local church.   As I reached the mid-teen years, I felt a strong call of God upon my life into full-time ministry.  God has allowed me to answer that call and I have been actively involved in many capacities of several ministries during the past twenty plus years.
I have a true calling and a great desire to declare the good news of the Gospel to a World which is in desperate need of answers to both current and future events.  My passion for music, worship leading and God’s word are some of my strong points, and I so enjoy the moving of the Spirit of God.  
I commenced my leadership with “Renewed Hope Church of God” in Saint John, NB in the middle of December 2015, and I am quite familiar with the church as I previously maintained the position of “Minister of Youth and Children” back in 2007 & 2008.   I am thrilled to be married to the love of my life, Lynette, and have been blessed with four beautiful children, Karter, Kason, Eava & Eden. My Wife is a Registered nurse and a tremendous help and support as my partner in ministry. God is so good!
I trust that you will join us in worship as we sing and proclaim the message of God’s great love and I look forward to meeting you at that time.
