Pastor Shawn Boonstra is speaker/director for the Voice of Prophecy ministry. His broadcasts and books have been a source of inspiration around the globe, and over the years, his live events have been presented on every continent except Antarctica.
Each week, he hosts the Voice of Prophecy’s flagship broadcast, Disclosure. The program—which features his wife, Associate Speaker Jean Boonstra, and special guests—takes a look at current events and trends, with an emphasis on how the Bible’s perspective on today’s issues is more relevant than ever.
He also traverses the globe to hold live meetings, including his Revelation Speaks Peace series, which reveals that prophecy can be understood, and that it ultimately points to the hope we find in Jesus. He has held this series in places such as Rome, Portland, Phoenix, Andhra Pradesh (India), Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Seattle, Denver and Raleigh.
Shawn is also spearheading Discovery Centers, the Voice of Prophecy’s effort to provide local churches with resources and training to make their community outreach even more effective. Encourage your church to sign up at discoverycenters.com and participate in Revelation 2020, which promises to be one of the largest evangelistic initiatives in the history of the church.
In addition, events such as Shadow Empire, A Pale Horse Rides and The Appearing are approaching Bible prophecy and issues like religious liberty from new angles. And many churches choose to follow up these events with Bible studies through the ministry’s Discover Bible School, which has seen more than 1 million graduates and is the largest Bible school in the Adventist Church.
The ministry’s reach extends worldwide, and current projects include various outreach programs in Myanmar and a rehabilitation home for young girls who have been the victims of human trafficking in India.
Prior to coming to the Voice of Prophecy in 2013, Shawn served as an associate ministerial director at the North American Division, where his role was to inspire, train and equip pastors and churches for evangelism.
Before this assignment, he served for seven years as speaker/director for It Is Written International Television. In his early pastoral career, he served as speaker/director for It Is Written Canada and pastored a number of churches in British Columbia.
He currently lives in Loveland, Colorado, and enjoys any activity that gets him out of doors and into the mountains, especially when his wife and two daughters join him. Learn more about Shawn and the Voice of Prophecy at vop.com.
