Ambassadors for Christ by Shawn White

Written by Davina White on Jan 06, 2019 in - No Comments

For this particular Sunday, we were pleased to have guest speaker and Canyon member, Shawn White, present the lesson. Shawn earned a BA in Religious Studies from Southern Evangelical Bible College and an MA in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. He is currently working towards a Doctorate of Philosophy in Humanities from Faulkner University. In 2011, Shawn founded Smart Faith, an apologetics parachurch ministry focused on “training believers to be confident, courageous, and culturally aware.” Shawn also leads Canyon’s Apologetics Ministry and regularly teaches classes at Canyon for adults and teens. He is a software developer by trade, and has been married to his wife, Davina, for 22 years.

In this lesson, Shawn looks at 2 Corinthians 5:16-20, Colossians 4:5-6, and several other Scriptures as he examines what it looks like to be an ambassador for Christ.  He also gives thanks and credit to Stand To Reason (STR) ministries, which initially developed some of the outline he uses in this lecture. The STR ministries goes much deeper into equipping Christ’s ambassadors on their site. We highly recommend you visit them at and take advantage of their free resources.
