A highly sought-after speaker, with three decades of full time ministry experience, Shane has impacted cities, communities, churches, and leaders, with his transparent approach to the Gospel. He has often been referred to “as a fresh and relevant voice for this generation.” His sermons have reached millions of people and have been highlighted on television, satellite radio, and the internet. With a practical, yet insightful preaching style, Shane is dedicated to spreading the good news of the Gospel to everyone he meets.
When asked what his greatest achievement in life has been, Shane quickly responds and answers, “Persuading Dana to marry me in June of 1990” Encouraging, optimistic, joyful, always upbeat and energetic. These are the words that are often used the most when being used to describe the dynamic and loving personality of Dana West. Raised in church, Dana made a commitment at a very young age that her life would make an eternal difference in today’s world. She continues to be greatly used by God with her Biblical insights, as well as her speaking and teaching ministry. Her greatest passion however, has always been ministering to children.
Dana and Shane, soon to celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary, are so proud and honored to be the parents of Dakota, a US Marine, Zane the Runner, and Shane Keith II the Gamer!

“As long as I have breath in my lungs, I will always be compelled to tell others what the Lord has done for me and what the Lord means to my family…regardless of the critic, regardless of the enemy and regardless of any of his attacks. All of those around me said that I would only last 6 months living for God; the critics gave me 6 months, but God has given me nearly 30 years!” – Shane West
