Dr. Jonathan Shaw’s Bio
Dr. Jonathan I. Shaw Sr. is the establishmentarian of Crown Ministries International Inc. The Lord has entrusted this chosen man of God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the United States and internationally.
The Lord progressively challenged Dr. Shaw to build Him a sanctuary that He may dwell among His people, and in July 2002, he introduced Crown Ministries International to the world. Two months later, Pastor Shaw led a growing congregation into their new edifice in the heart of Canarsie, Brooklyn. Under his tutelage, the ministry has grown to greater heights.
From the onset of his divine assignment, this great philanthropist has created many community outreach services and programs including Horn of Plenty, which to date has fed and clothed nearly 100,000 people.
Dr. Shaw is compassionate about the community God has assigned him to and therefore serves as a Clergy Liaison; a NYC Chaplain; an active NAACP member; and is a board member of the Department of Youth & Community Development #18 in Canarsie.
As a businessman, he is the CEO and Founder of Crown Advancement Center, a non-for-profit corporation, which helps individuals “Advance Through Adversity”. Dr. Shaw has also created a bookkeeping firm called Emerging Church Group. This company exists to help churches to grow healthy.
In 2008, Dr. Shaw received two honorary doctoral degrees in ministry and divinity from St. Thomas Christian College of Jacksonville, FL & Anointed by God Seminary of Brooklyn, NY. To date, Dr. Shaw has published two books entitled: “31 Days of Wisdom” and “31 Days of Financial Wisdom”. His latest project is a prophetic prayer CD entitled, “Praying for You”. He has also been commissioned in 2015, as the New York State coordinator of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. A Judeo-Christian organization which mobilizes prayer in America and encourages personal repentance.
He is the blessed husband of gospel singer, Pastor Sabrina Shaw. Together they lead Crown Ministries into new realms of the Spirit. When their ministries combine it causes a spiritual explosion. He is also the pleased father of Alonzo, Shauntae and Jonathan Jr.
Pastor Shaw strongly believes that the tool that will transform the world is preaching the truth of the gospel in love from the church. In turn, the church will lead the nations back to God.
