Bios of Bishop Shawn, First Lady Tasha
and The True Faith Leadership Team
Bishop Shawn B. Davis
...was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He has been married to First Lady Tasha Davis for twenty-one years; however they have known each other for over twenty-seven years. Currently, they reside in Spotsylvania, Va. with their two sons, Blake and Michael, both of whom attend James Madison University.
As a young man, at the age of eighteen, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior in the Church of God in Christ. In 1996 while living in Irvine, California he and his family became members of Saddleback Community Church, led by Pastor Rick Warren. It was during this time that he felt God truly begin to do a mighty work within him. After participating in a men’s retreat held by Saddleback, he felt led to start a small group in his home and become a lay pastor with the church. At this time, he was still serving as an active duty U.S. Marine Corps Officer and upon receiving transition orders moved to Monterrey California where they became members of The Carpenter’s House. Here, he began to fully experience the joy of service - first assisting the ushers and greeters, and later as part of the staff where he became a youth leader and where once again he and his wife made the decision to form and lead another small group in their home.
It was then Pastor Davis began to feel a higher calling to start his own church. October 2, 2004, after their last Marine Corps directed move, he and First Lady Tasha held their first service in their home and “True Faith Community Church – A Church Without Walls” began to take form. In 2005, the church moved from out of their home to 317 Wallace St., Fredericksburg, VA. The church remained there for 3 years until moving to Four Mile Fork Business Center at 4733 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Fredericksburg, VA, then to 2222 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Fredericksburg, VA, and is currently located within Battlefield Middle School 11120 Leavells Rd, Fredericksburg, VA.
Along this Spirit led and Spirit filled journey, on August 5, 2011, Pastor Shawn Davis was appointed Bishop, while a member of the Restoration Assembly Worldwide Fellowship of Churches. He has served on the Apostolic Cabinet as the Bishop of Executive Administration & Protocol. Bishop Davis was also appointed as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Bishop, which covered VA, WV, DC, MD, PA, DE, & NJ. He has also served as the Presiding Director of Fredericksburg Rappahannock Evangelical Alliance (FREA), and is serving as the Executive Director of FAMIO Ministries FAILSAFE –ERA. In addition, Bishop Davis is currently running for Spotsylvania County School Board for the Salem District. The vision that the Lord blessed him with many years ago, to be a Church Without Walls, has guided and continues to guide him as he seeks the most high calling of following in the footsteps of our Lord, Jesus Christ, touching and impacting the community in which the Lord has so graciously made him apart of.
