Shawn D. Congleton has lived a life on the move; moving nearly 80 times before he graduated and living in almost 20 states. Since that time, he has spent most of it in Ohio with his wife, Heidi and three girls, Morgan, Jordan, and Brooklyn. He has been an admin clerk for the United States Marine Corps, secretary for Wright State University, youth and young adult pastor at High Street Church of the Nazarene, church planter with Life House Community, secretary with Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center, school counselor for Dunbar High School and Springfield High School, and co-principal with his wife, Heidi at the Eagle & Dove Academy.
Shawn met Jesus in the Marine Corps and never settled for just a ticket to heaven. He pursues knowing, loving and following Jesus in community. He wants his entire life to express the glory and goodness of God. He pursues this through his family, his writing, one-on-one discipleship, his Iron Men Ministry and all of his relationships.
