Jesus Is The Answer Apostolic Church
Pastor Shon & Ericka Davis
Pastor Shon relocated from Compton California to Spokane Washington in July of 1994 and founded the ministry of Jesus Is The Answer Apostolic Church. He is the husband of Sister Ericka Davis and has three son's and one daughter.
Pastor Shon served as a volunteer minister in the department of corrections (Pine Lodge and Airway Hights) for the past 10 years. He founded an after care home for ex-offenders transitioning from prison back into society in 2001 and has helped many offenders turn their lives around.
In 1996 to 2000 Pastor Shon, Pastor Alvin and Pastor Jeff together founded one of Spokane's first Gang prevention and intervention program called God's Gym in downtown Spokane. This program ministered to an average of 200 to 300 active gang members every Friday night. God's Gym brought gang awareness to the school district, to parents and community leaders in an attempt to educate the city on what was and what was coming to the city and to discuss how we can work together to prevent the escalation of the gang and drug problem in our city.
Pastor Shon has continued to serve as a mentor to at risk youth and as a referral for the school district to send troubled youth to for counseling and guidance.
Pastor Shon himself is a former gang member and was born into a family that was already rooted into the original culture of the gang since the 1995 Watts riot. Pastor Shon lost two of his brothers who were killed in the gang and another in a car accident. This has been a motivator for Shon to become an advocate for youth to help prevent them from joining the gang and working with those already involved to help get them out and show them a better life that is more purposeful and meaningful.
