Shawn Stinson is the founding and lead pastor of Redemption Church.
Shawn grew up in Raleigh, NC, and after attending Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in Church, he and his wife Kalle, moved to Seattle to learn and grow further as an apprentice at Mars Hill Church. After two years studying the church and learning about church planting, he felt called to plant a church in Charlotte; a church that loves Jesus and consistently preaches through the Bible. As part of the Acts 29 church planting network, Redemption Church began in the Stinson's living room in 2010, and has continued to grow over the years, now gathering at the Dowd YMCA in Uptown Charlotte.
Shawn and Kalle have been married for 10 years and are the proud parents of three children: Pearce, Loah and Stone.
