His current ministry campaign "We Stand - UNDIVIDED" has sparked an awakening of unity and urgency on the Jersey Shore with numerous pastors from across denominational backgrounds involved.
Shawn and Glennys Hyland have been married for 17 years with 4 children. Their marriage has faced financial challenges as they obeyed the voice of God to resign from strong career positions in 2003 to relocate to Columbus, OH in hopes of attending Valor Christian College. They have experienced numerous miracles and answeres to prayers ranging from finances, to health, to relationships and spiritual growth. Many of these accounts can be read at Glennys' Blog 'Life Experiences'.
The Impact of Shawn Hyland's Ministry
The heart of Shawn Hyland is to take average everyday believers and transform them into compassionate, committed, educated and equipped Christ Followers - who live a purposeful life of self denial and servant hood. His passionate sermons and intense storytelling forms a unique and powerful ministry experience.
“Shawn Hyland has been blessed with a keen ability to communicate the truths of the Word of God in a very clear and easy to understand manner. His passion to see the church committed to the Savior is contagious. He has always been a great blessing to our congregation and a dear friend"
Pastor Joe Sorce - New Beginnings Christian Church, Brick, NJ
Shawn is a anointed man of God who is filling a vital role in the Body of Christ today. His passion to preserve and promote a biblical world view is critical in our current culture and climate in America. His world view presentation is outstanding and I highly recommend it to your church, school or youth ministry.
Shawn's heart for unity in the church can be seen in his "Undivided" initiatives and they have been very inspiring and effective here in Ocean/Monmouth counties in NJ. It is so refreshing to be able to say that in a world of "professional Christians," Shawn is truly a man of God and a man of high caliber and character. He is a prophetic voice for such a time as this!
Pastor Jim Wehrer - Church of Grace and Peace, Toms River, NJ
“Shawn Hyland is a passionate leader in the Kingdom in Ocean County, NJ. He has spoken at our church, shared a leadership role in community wide evangelistic activities, and prayed with me regularly. When Shawn spoke at our church, he made a very complicated subject easy to grasp and applied his teaching with great impact. He lit a fire in some of our members that is burning to this day.”
Pastor Bill Meyer - Alive Again Alliance Church, Toms River, NJ
"In a time when the world says truth is relative, Shawn establishes the Truth of God as more relevant than ever. Shawn has done his research and can easily and effectively communicate what we believe and why we believe it, exposing the false thinking of our times and calling us to boldly proclaim the Truth. Shawn is passionate about the call that God has on his life to declare the authority of Christ, reassert the faith, and unite the Church. He is a man who is willing to give it all to make Jesus known and his passion is contagious as he leads the charge in God's movement to transform the world."
