“Our World Needs the Authentic Jesus Now”

“…After a lifetime of knowing Jesus, only recently have I encountered the authentic Jesus.” Stan Jantz, CEO of Come and See, testifies of the impact The Chosen has had on his own life.  He was so impacted that he leads Come and See on their mission to share the authentic Jesus through The Chosen with 95% of the world’s population!

Perry shares, “I want to be done trying to fix the ugly inside of me through achievements, applause, winning the approval of teachers, bosses, coaches. Cause it doesn’t work!”

Then, following Jesus is a constant dethroning of self. Like Job, we need to be reminded every day, all day, that God is God and we are not. Shawna shares simple ways to keep that truth before us each and every day.

Perry shares, “God doesn’t unconditionally promise to protect us from being really hurt in this fallen world. But he does promise to always be with us and to forever save us from the judgment we deserve for our sins.” And that’s amazing!

Last, as you may know, Shawna grew up in SoCal. You may not know her dad worked for Warner Bros. On one visit to Warner Bros. Studios to meet her dad at the commissary for lunch Shawna unexpectedly was reminded who her dad was.

Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
