About the Chancellor
Dr. Shawn Smith
Dr. Shawn Smith is a Professor of Sacred Theology and an ordained minister of the Gospel with the divine mandate to “present the revelation of Christ Jesus, the loveliness of His person and the perfection of His work, with excellence and clarity for the rising of the Glorious Church.” He is the apostolic overseer of Gospel of Christ Ministries (GCM), an ever-increasing network of churches, which he has established in every major city within the nation of Cameroon and across the world. Together with his wife Dr. Annie Smith, they shepherd a global church including the GCM Internet Fellowship, reaching 153 nations, and touching close to 300,000 families globally.
Through his apostolic teaching ministry, he has raised, trained and ordained faithful men from around the world into the sacred order of ministry. He has been expounding and preaching the untainted grace of our Lord Jesus Christ for more than two decades. His exegetical and inspirational method of presentation of the New Testament has established him as a theological authority in the Gospel revealed to the Apostle Paul.
The pastoral ministry of Dr Shawn Smith feeds countless saints beyond denominational barriers, thanks to a ministerial network he created in 2013, known as Christ Commission International (CCI). CCI is an apostolic league of New Testament Ministers to network for communion and association. Through CCI, the Apostle of Grace gathers ministers across the various continents, committing to them the mystery revealed to the archetype apostle, Paul. CCI consists of churches from various jurisdictions to be a unified witness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Smith has raised New Testament ministers with the theological and academic foundation for grace ministry, through Theosis Higher Institute. He is an internationally recognized speaker, author, and teacher. He has devoted himself to dispense the undiluted message of Christ through documentation in diverse formats, a legacy for generations to come. In 2005, he wrote his first book, Fathered by God, pioneering the message of the Fatherhood of God. He later released As Righteous by God, to debunk the notion of salvation by works. Other works by Dr Shawn Smith include The Mystery of the Faith, and Jesus Christ + 0 = Everything – an evangelistic tool freely distributed across the world.
He is the compiler and editor of The Shawn Smith Compendium of Paul’s Epistles, a corpus selection of the Authorised King James Version from Romans to Hebrews, alongside the most helpful insights from 170 additional versions and manuscripts from the most reputable sources. He has written several commentaries on the epistles of Apostles Paul and John, including Romans Revealed Volume 1, a verse-by-verse expository and exegetical commentary of Paul’s epistle to the Romans, Blessed with All Blessings: An Exegetical Commentary on Ephesians Chapter 1, Consecrated to the Call: An Exegetical Commentary on the Apostolic, Doctrinal, and Practical Instructions on Paul’s Second Letter to Timothy, and Our Communion With Life, Light And Love: An Exegetical and Devotional Commentary of the Epistles of St. John the Beloved.
