Our Pastor

Pastor Shawn & Andrea Machen

Pastor Shawn was born in Anniston, Alabama in 1970. From a very early age, he had a strong passion for God desiring to show people how to experience the goodness of God through the simple message of Jesus. In 1986, Shawn met his wife Andrea, and they were married in the summer of 1988. Andrea was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and graduated from Shades Valley High School. They have two sons, Caleb and Nathanael. Caleb married his wife Jessica in December of 2008, and they gave birth to their son Troy in December of 2013. Nathanael is following a career in aviation while also taking courses for a college degree.

Andrea serves the City of Moody as the Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, and Pastor Shawn is a professional corporate pilot, flying and managing for several businesses in Birmingham.

Pastor Shawn has a rich background of experience in ministry. He graduated from Ministers Training Institute in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has been on mission trips to Haiti, Mexico, Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, and Nicaragua. Pastor Shawn and Andrea have a love and passion for missions and helping those who are in need. Not only do they support local and foreign missions monetarily, but when there is a mission trip, our pastors are on the “front-line” together, preaching God’s Word and seeing lives changed for the kingdom of God.

World Victory Church started with just a handful of people in the living room of our pastor’s home in 1996, and it has grown to see the ministry purchase two buildings with 4 acres in April of 2007. Because of the vision, in July of 2013, the ministry purchased an additional 16 acres on HWY 411 in order to build a larger sanctuary along with children’s church and youth centers.

Our pastors have the vision of setting people free with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. Their hearts reveal the true nature of God’s Word, and they teach by example that nothing is impossible to him that believes.
