Shane West was born and raised in Fresno, California. At a very young age Shane found himself addicted to drugs and alcohol and was bound in a world of sin, but after years of addiction he was delivered and set free by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Beginning to preach that Gospel just two years after his miraculous conversion, Shane has witnessed many miracles, healing’s and deliverance’s in his ministry and now has preached throughout the United States sharing his testimony to thousands.
Shane West is the founder of Champions Ministries, established in 1990, and is the current founder and Lead Pastor of Church of Champions, a non denominational church located in the Central California region. Shane has been recognized by various ministries and media platforms as an innovative and fresh voice for this generation. He combines a unique and relevant approach to the Gospel with over 23 years serving as a Christian minister in speaking at a variety of venues. Though many of these venue were meetings such as Conferences, Crusades, Youth Camps, Church Leadership and Revival Services, Shane’s ultimate passion is simply connecting with people on a personal level.
Shane is the author of his autobiography, “Recycled By Grace”, his life story of how Christ can take a man that survives in crack houses and after a dynamic change open hundreds of doors to church houses for masses to hear that there are in fact no lost causes in Christ! From the years of addictions and now the sobriety and education that Shane has acquired, in 2004 he founded “Champions of Recovery”, a faith based addiction and recovery program that has impacted many that struggle with the same addictions that once had Shane West bound.
Shane continues periodically to travel blessing congregations across America and Shane says…”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 in living for God; the critics gave me 6 months, but God has given me nearly 26 years!”
Shane is married and deeply devoted to his wife Dana, the founder of “Favored and Free” of 23 years. They are currently raising three amazing sons, Dakota, Zane, and Shane Keith II, residing in Clovis, California!
