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. While serving among an unreached, animistic people group in the mountains of South Sudan, their team had to evacuate and were unable to return. Following their escape from South Sudan, they worked among an unreached, Muslim people group on a coastal African island for two years.

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. Upon graduation from the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA), Shawn served as the Chapter Director for Ratio Christi at Portland State University (PSU). While at PSU, Shawn organized and led one of the first weeklong university missions in the US in partnership with RZIM and several other campus ministries.

Shawn first joined RZIM in 2015 as an OCCA Fellow in Washington, DC. Since that time, he has lead several university missions in the US and UK and was part of the leadership team for the Chicago Festival of Thought.

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.
