Reverend Michael A. Shinn and Lady Eunice Shinn are the Senior Pastor and Overseer of New World Harvest Church, respectively.

Rev. Michael A. Shinn is a native of Chicago. He moved to Birmingham, Alabama where he graduated high school and went to college. After marrying the former Eunice Dawson in 1981, the Shinns moved to Houston, Texas, where they united with St. James Missionary Baptist Church. Under the leadership of Pastor Melvin Smith, Rev. Shinn began to develop spiritually, and ministry became a way of life. In 1983, at the age of 23, he acknowledged his call into the ministry.

Rev. Shinn’s eagerness to work in the vineyard moved his ministry in the direction of the youth.  With his knowledge of God, wisdom and ability to relate to and identify with kids on their level, he organized the youth ministry “J.O.Y.”, Just Ordinary Youth. The J.O.Y ministry not only contributed significantly to their spiritual growth, but it also increased their social skills. The ministry helped build their self-esteem through teaching them how to improve their problem solving abilities, how to interact with others socially, and it prepared them for the work force.

The Shinns moved to Atlanta where they united with Salem Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Jasper Williams, Jr. During his tenure at Salem, he led the Evangelism Task Force and the Prison Ministry.

Rev. Shinn completed the Jasper Williams Preaching and Pastoring Workshop and matriculated at the Beulah Heights Bible College in 1994 and pursued a degree in the Urban Evangelism.

In 1991, Rev. Shinn became the Pastor of Piney Grove Baptist Church, where the Lord honored his faithfulness and diligence, as he would see his efforts rewarded through spiritual, numerical and financial growth.

In April 2000, God directed Pastor Shinn to organize New World Harvest Church in Stone Mountain, Georgia, where he along with Lady Shinn and their son Cameron is currently seeing the favor and hand of God at work.

His motto is “It’s not about a Man, it’s all about Jesus”.
