Lead Pastor
SHAWN WEASE - Lead Pastor

I have been married to my incredible wife Chastity for 18 years. We have four children – Chloe, Ryan, Tyler, and Allie. My passions are spending time with my beautiful wife, four wonderful kids and being a pastor. My role as lead pastor is to be the visionary and teaching pastor of the church. I also try to lead the effort for community and international missions.


– BA in Business Administration
– Montreat College

Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

People that have influenced me:

Billy Wease Sr. and Pat Herndon (My parents) – I have never seen anyone demonstrate God’s grace more than my dad and I have never seen anyone reflect God’s generosity like my mom. I can’t thank them enough for all the love and support they have given me my entire life. The profound impact they have had on my life can’t be expressed with words.

Chip Sloan – Chip is my pastor and the greatest pastor in the world (at least as far as I’m concerned). He has mentored me and I have gone farther faster as a pastor and disciple because of him. I feel like he is Paul and I am Timothy. I can’t thank him enough for the wisdom he has imparted to me and the sage advice he has given me. It has been a blessing and honor to learn from such a godly man with such great insight.

Chloe, Ryan, Tyler, and Allie Wease (My kids) – They keep me laughing and refuse to let me take myself too seriously. They teach me lessons about trust, humility and forgiveness in a way that no one else could.

Chastity Wease (My wife) – I wouldn’t be where I am today without the love, support, and encouragement of Chastity. She always keeps me going when I am discouraged and keeps on me on course. She is truly a Proverbs 31 lady and a blessing from God.

Jesus – He saved me and made me part of His family. I will live my life for Him.

People who have influenced me from afar:
