Shawn & Alison James
Field: Toronto, Canada
Mission: Urban Promise
Growing up in Malvern, Shawn found himself asking his church, “What are you doing to save kids like me?” When the response was a resounding, “What are you going to do about it, Shawn?” a light bulb turned on and he accepted the challenge. Shawn joined Urban Promise in 2001 and has helped lead our team to where we are today. Three of Shawn’s favourite things are his wife, Alison, and their two young children. Urban Promise Toronto exists to proclaim the love of Jesus, and to express it through the spiritual, social and educational development of children, youth and families living in Toronto Community Housing. Our vision is to reach as many children as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ, raise them into spiritual leaders, and then watch as God uses them to restore their own communities.
