My name is Aaron Shamp and I am a writer, speaker, and pastor. In 2014, a small team and I planted Redeemer City Church in Lafayette, LA. We’re a young, growing church and I love serving as their Lead Pastor. As a part of the ministries at Redeemer, I also lead our apologetics ministry called Faith Forum. I have a M.A. in Christian Apologetics from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. My wife and I have one daughter, and we love living in Lafayette!

One of my passions is discipleship and I love to do that through coaching. So, I also coach leaders of all kinds to achieve health, personal effectiveness, and impact in their communities.



my Mission

As a scholar and practitioner, my calling is to equip you with Christian worldview resources, so that you can renew your mind and change the world. My areas of expertise are in philosophy, apologetics, and worldview. I do cultural analysis and engage the marketplace of ideas through the lens of the biblical worldview. However, I believe that ideas have consequences, so I write and create resources to be applied in one’s life and church. You can find my writings published at The Stream, Boundless, and Growing Deeper Roots. I have also contributed the “Postmodernism” article for Watchman Fellowship’s Watchman Profiles.

Aaron thinks critically and engages culture naturally. His heart to equip and connect kingdom-minded leaders pulls leaders together for crucial conversations. Both his sharp mind and his deep heart come to the surface in his writing and speaking. We need more leaders like Aaron!


Here are some of the organizations that I lead or work with.


Redeemer city church

redeemer city church

We started Redeemer City Church in September of 2014. Redeemer exists to be a church for the skeptic, the curious, and the committed. Our primary strategy is to make disciples and develop leaders for the kingdom.


Faith Forum

Faith Forum

Faith Forum is an apologetics ministry started by Redeemer. We facilitate thoughtful conversations on life's biggest questions.


multiply acadiana

multiply acadiana

We are a collective of missional leaders in Acadiana. Our region is rich with culture and history. Yet, it is poor in kingdom growth. As church leaders, collegiate ministers, students, entrepreneurs and professionals, we are leading the way to change that. 

I'd love to hear from you!
