Dr. Jonathan Shaw’s Bio
Dr. Jonathan I. Shaw Sr. is the senior pastor 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 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
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.
