John Shane was raised in a
non-Christian abusive environment. He is a child of a bigamist
alcoholic father and a teenage mother. John was deserted by his
father before birth and raised by an abusive alcoholic stepfather.
He was told he would never amount to anything. John learned how to
hate with great hatred at a young age.
John got radically
saved when he was 34 and God instantly turned great hatred into
great love. He and his wife have worked with hard-core young people
and have had 58 foster children in their home over the years.
John and Evelyn have three
natural children and one adopted Russian child. They have Pastored
four churches and now serve as Evangelist with a ministry to help
hurting families and children; a ministry of restoration and
reconciliation for the hurting.
John was greatly
impacted by a missions trip to Poland in 1984 and later on missions
trips to Russia. New Hope Outreach Ministries grew out of seeing the
great needs in the Eastern block countries. NHOM brings the Gospel
of Jesus Christ to orphans and widows where the needs are often
desperate. They also provide Bibles, medicines, vitamins, toys,
clothes, and love to the children they minister to.
John and Evelyn feel
very blessed by God's grace in the privilege to touch the lives of
so many children and widows in need.
religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the
Fatherless and widows in their
and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
If you really fulfill the royal law
according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself",
you do well.
And the King will
answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you
did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
