Singer/songwriter, Author, Worship Leader, Radio Host

Shawn Thomas is a contemporary Christian singer/songwriter and worship leader whose ministry includes an outreach to the GLBT community. As a "CCM" artist (Contemporary Christian Music), many of Thomas' original works are included in the CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) Library.
His ministry is an affiliate of The Evangelical Network (TEN).

Shawn Thomas - Gay Christian SingerShawn currently serves in ministry as the Worship Ministry Coordinator at Church of the Holy SpiritSong in Fort Lauderdale (Wilton Manors) Florida, and works for The Evangelical Network (TEN) as their Project Manager.

He is also the owner/operator of Shawn Thomas Studios in West Palm Beach, FL providing audio recording, production, and mastering services to independent artists, songwriters, and bands, and he participated as a voting "Grammy" member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences from 2009-2015.

Over the past decade, Shawn Thomas has received critical recognition from OutMusic, The Stonewall Society, RightOutTV, and QNation. In addition, his service to the community has been acknowledged by The Reformed Catholic Church of the United States, The State of Arkansas Ambassador of Good Will Program, Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride in California, and various independent and denominational congregations.

His most recent book, "The Power of Not: Positive Results from Negative Affirmations," focuses on identifying who you are NOT in order to discover who you ARE. Gospel Singer, Kenny Bishop, calls the concept of the book a "science of reverse positivity." "The Power of Not" follows Thomas' first book published in 2010, titled "Unashamed: Coming Out of the Second Closet," which describes his experience of being in the crosshairs from both the GLBT community and the "straight" Christian community for sharing his beliefs.

VOW Radio (Voice of Worship Radio) is an online streaming broadcast extension of Shawn's ministry through Aaron's Rainbow Project, and features popular CCM via Pandora and iHeartRadio. The feature program on VOW Radio is a YouTube interview show hosted by Shawn, called "FiveNFive," where special guests have just five minutes to answer five questions.
