Shawn Hart

Shawn is a dynamic speaker and leads mission weeks at prominent universities. Cross-cultural mission work with two unreached people groups stirred in him a love for culture and how to respectfully engage with people from diverse cultural perspectives.

Shawn is the Assistant Director of the Zacharias Institute and a member of the US speaking team. He began serving with Young Life shortly after becoming a Christian in his early twenties. During these years, a desire to take the gospel to unreached people groups in the world motivated Shawn and his wife, Carly, eventually taking them to Africa where they served with Africa Inland Mission from 2008-2012. They served among an unreached, animistic people group in the mountains of South Sudan, and an unreached Muslim people group on a coastal African island.

During his time in Africa, Shawn saw the need and benefit of apologetics in evangelism and discipleship. Cross-cultural mission work stirred in him a love for culture and an interest in thinking about how to respectfully engage with people from diverse cultural perspectives.

Shawn worked in campus ministry prior to joining RZIM and he is passionate about bringing the gospel to university campuses. He heads up RZIM’s university missions weeks and continues to lead the movement he helped start in Portland Oregon.

Shawn has a certificate in theological studies from Oxford University and a degree in ministry and leadership from Western Seminary. He currently lives in Alpharetta, Georgia, with his wife and their three young children.
