Pastor Shawn Sprouse

Hello, I have the privilege of working with middle school students, high school students, and their families.  I have been serving students for 14 years and serving students here at Old North Church since 2004.  I have been called by Christ to work with students and help them understand how to come to Christ and become disciples that make disciples.  Discipleship is very important to me and to our students and their parents. Our model of student ministry is based on teaching students how to Get with Christ, how to Grow in Christ, and how to Go in Christ.

True discipleship is seeing students come to Christ in salvation, seeing them grow in Christ, and ultimately leading others in Christ as well as discipling them.  We have been blessed to see this take place numerous times here at Old North.  I am excited to teach students how to stand up against this world and the enemy and live for Christ.  We at Old North desire our students to live out Matthew 28:16-20.

I am blessed with 3 great kids Taryn, Libby, and Troy.  It brings me great joy to lead and share Christ to them.  God has blessed me greatly with a beautiful wife, Lindsey.  We were high school sweethearts and have been married for 15 years.  I love to hang out with my wife and I am grateful that God has put us on a great journey with Him. I have a student ministry degree from Malone University and have been blessed to have many connections in our valley.

I am also blessed to be the Chaplain at Heartland Christian School and serve as their boy’s varsity basketball coach.  God has also given me the opportunity to serve on the board of Camp Burton, our denominational camp.  I love being with students and showing them the life of Christ.  Please pray for our students and families, so that we can Get with Christ, Grow in Christ, and Go with Christ.
