If you have been to the retreat in the past, you will recognize Shane as the wingman (a.k.a husband) of our worship leader, Lisa Anderson. He's graciously ministered to singles the past couple of years in a supporting role, both individually and from the pulpit. This year we're excited to welcome him to step into his passion of teaching and sharing the Love of Jesus with those who are blessed to join us.
No matter what shoes he is wearing -- business owner, minister, family-man or friend -- Shane loves what he does! He desires to serve the Lord by helping and encouraging individuals to become all God intends them to be. With warm and insightful messages, Shane's passionate teaching reflects his sincere love for God and people.

FAVORITE SCRIPTURE: Hebrew 12:1-3 (NIV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
