Elder Wayne Shaw was raised in the Lutheran church where he learned Bible stories and was active in ministry, even teaching the Jr. High Sunday School class. But at the age of 22 the Lord graciously opened his eyes to the fact that he was a sinner, and that salvation was by faith alone through grace alone. He and Elizabeth were married in 1974 and attended a couple of Baptist churches and a large non-denominational church. However, early in their marriage they had studied Reformed theology and in a sort of “homecoming” joined Covenant in 2012. He and Elizabeth have two grown children and a grandson, all living on the West Coast. Wayne teaches adult Sunday School classes and helps with mowing, and the Shaws also serve on the Christian Education Committee. He enjoys fishing, boating, traveling, woodworking, oil painting, and is a licensed pilot hoping someday to get back to flying small airplanes. The Shaws split their time between Ocean City, NJ and the Peter Becker Community in Harleysville.
