Some call me Diddy, bishop, pastor, others know me as Founder of InstaGod Ministries. In response, I tell them I am just Shawn, an ordinary simple guy.
A Little More About Me
I’m a follower of Jesus Christ. I was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Brooklyn, New York during my youth years and Memphis Tennessee during my teenage years. I’m a member of Bellevue Baptist Church and a graduate from the University of Memphis with a BS in Criminology & Criminal Justice.
I grew up in Christian home. My story is different from most who’ve encountered Christ. I accepted His free gift at a Christian Camp Retreat in New York City where I attended Brooklyn Tabernacle Church; it was around the age of 7-9. So yes, I got saved early before the devil had his way in my life. The next step in my walk was to get baptized, however, I was afraid I was going to drown or become frozen. It wasn’t until my freshman year of college I took my walk seriously with the Lord. I was saved but I wasn’t living as though I was and that is when my life begin to change and take off into the next level.
My Entrepreneurial World
I began my Ministry on Monday June 4th, 2012. I woke up feeling the urge to create a Christian based page on Instagram. Without any hestitation I instantly knew it was the Holy Spirit speaking to me. Of course I inquired why? The answer was quite explicit… Millions of children, teenagers, and young adults own a social network account and a plethora of them are hurting, dismayed, perplexed, broken, lost, confused, crying daily, tired of life, and the list goes on. The page was created to inform God’s people that He is still here. Since the day my page launched it has grown tremendously, reaching thousands. Testimony after testimony my heart was moved and touched by the move of God. A few of the testimonies that were shared were: Being saved, delivered, healed, receiving conformation from God, restored, baptized, conviction, and much, much more! Though I am the founder and CEO of a world wide ministry, I put myself last because it is not centered around me nor is it about me it is centered and about Jesus Christ for I am nothing without Him. I don’t need an acclaim or self-gratification. All the glory and honor, and praises go to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
