Shawn LantzWe all have a defining moment or experience in our past. Shawn Lantz’s defining moment occurred when she moved with her family to the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly the Belgian Congo and Zaire) in 1978 at the age of ten. For the next eight years, Congo was the tapestry on which God awakened Shawn to the reality of His presence through amazing life events. Although she saw the unexplainable hand of God as a missionary kid, her faith in Jesus Christ truly became her own faith after the birth of her second child in 1998.

Shawn’s passion to tell others about “the incomparable riches of God in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6-7) as she teaches, exhorts and encourages women through the Word of God. Shawn will encourage your group with her heartfelt speaking style as she uses her God-given ability to interpret life experiences through the Scriptures.

Welcome to Esengo Ministries! I am so grateful that you have stopped by. “Esengo” means “joy” in Lingala, the national language of the Democratic Republic of Congo. I have been blessed with many moments of joy in my life, but the greatest joy comes from my personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Esengo Ministries was birthed out of my passion to share His joy with others through writing, teach and speaking. Please contact me regarding my availability to speak to your group using the contact link above, where you can also see my schedule.

Blessings to you,
