Pastor Shannon was born in Albany, Georgia. He was raised in Atlanta.
Since being saved in 1997 Pastor Shannon has ministered the word of God, both diligently and faithfully, to individuals from all walks of life. He has served as Youth Minister and Outreach Minister for Growing in Grace and Higher Ground COGIC for over 10 years. He has been ordained by God and was legally ordained Riverdale, Georgia in 2007. He is the author of the audio book, Passion + Action = Success.
Freedom Christian Center was then founded and launched on September 16, 2007. It was this love, experience and authority from God that led Pastor Shannon to ultimately start the ministry. Freedom Christian Center is now under the covering of Bishop C.L. Carter and Elder Deborah Carter of First Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. His mission is simply to transform the lives of many through relevant and powerful teaching, writing and speaking. Under his leadership, this ministry continues to grow.
