Shaun LePage

Office: Madison Hall – Administration Building; Room 225

Title: Department Chair of Ministry Studies, Assistant Professor of Ministry Studies

Started at Calvary: July 2018

Professional Information: B.A. (Communications), Missouri Southern State College, 1987; Th.M. (Pastoral Leadership), Dallas Theological Seminary, 1996; D.Min. in progress (Church-Based Theological Education), The Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development.

Favorite aspect of teaching at Calvary: I worked in youth ministry for about 30 years, and have always loved helping younger believers grasp important issues and concepts. The same is really true here at Calvary – I just find that the students here are more serious and eager to learn.

Favorite class to teach: This is tough. I love teaching and I love every class I teach, but my favorite at this time is “Theological Foundations of Ministry” (MS340). That course gives me a chance to lay out the “Biblical Theology” of ministry – just letting the New Testament speak for itself and show us the pattern for ministry given by the first people who ever attempted to pull off the Great Commission.

Originally from: I grew up in Joplin, Missouri, but left long before the famous tornado. My wife, Beth, and I lived in the Dallas, Texas, area for 14 years before moving to Lawrence, Kansas, in 2005. God blessed us with four baby Texans and two baby Kansans.

How did past ministry/professional experience lead to your position at Calvary: Right out of college, I used my communications degree, but went to seminary in 1991 and dove headlong into full-time ministry as a worship leader, a youth pastor and associate pastor of everything (including marketing, communications, video production, etc.). When I got the opportunity to dust off my communications skills and serve Calvary – all things considered – I believed the timing was right, so I happily applied and was offered the dual administrative-faculty role.

Ministry/Professional involvement outside of Calvary: I continue to serve as the senior pastor of CityChurch Lawrence, in Lawrence, Kansas. It is a unique ministry: We are part of a global movement to restore what is known as “The Antioch Tradition,” which emerged in the heart of the Book of Acts (Chapter 13ff) when Paul and Barnabas set out on the first intentional missionary movement. Their example developed into a “tradition” of ministry that defined the Church for the first 300 years of church history. We believe there is a great need for the 21st century church to return to those roots in order to face the challenges of the rapidly changing world around us.
