Pastor Shawn Boonstra is speaker/director for the Voice of Prophecy ministry. His
broadcasts, live seminars, and books have been a source of inspiration around the globe,
and over the years, his live events have been presented on every continent except
Each week, he hosts the Voice of Prophecy’s flagship broadcast, Authentic. In this television
and radio program, Shawn explores the existential questions of human experience, looking
to examples from history and answers from Scripture to guide the way.
Shawn also traverses the globe to hold live meetings, including his Revelation Speaks Peace
series, which reveals that prophecy can be understood and that it ultimately points to the
hope we find in Jesus. He has held this series in places such as Rome, Portland, Phoenix,
Andhra Pradesh (India), Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Seattle, Denver, and
Raleigh. Plans are in place for a similar series in Calgary, Alberta in 2023.
Shawn is also spearheading Discovery Centers, VOP’s effort to provide local churches with
resources and training to make their community outreach even more effective. One key
component in Discovery Centers is the Discover Bible School, which has already seen more
than 1 million graduates. Another key component, Discovering Revelation, launched in
2020, placing in the hands of local pastors a full-message preach-it series modeled after
Revelation Speaks Peace.
In addition, VOP events such as Final Empire, Shadow Empire, and A Pale Horse Rides are
approaching Bible prophecy and issues like religious liberty from new angles and
empowering local churches to reach out to their communities.
The ministry’s reach extends worldwide, and current projects include various outreach
programs in Myanmar, the translation of Bible lessons in the Arctic, and a rehabilitation
home for young girls who have been the victims of human trafficking in India.
Prior to coming to VOP in 2013, Shawn served as an associate ministerial director at the
North American Division, where his role was to inspire, train, and equip pastors and
churches for evangelism.
Before this assignment, he served for seven years as speaker/director for It Is Written
International Television. In his early pastoral career, he served as speaker/director for It Is
Written Canada and pastored a number of churches in British Columbia.
He currently lives in Loveland, Colorado, and enjoys any activity that gets him out of doors
and into the mountains, especially when his wife and two daughters join him. Learn more
