Marketing & Media
Shawn Joshua Boyette comes from a background of Sales Management in the Communications field, having worked at Time Warner Cable, Best Buy Stores, & AT&T, shawn is no stranger to technology and marketing.Shawn and his wife Michelle Brooks-Boyette joined A Place Called Hope church in 2009. They were blessed with attending the first Bible Study session in the first church building of A Place Called Hope Church with his wife Michelle Brooks-Boyette. Although the church was just beginning it was one of the most exciting movements made in the Raleigh Garner area. This was the very first African American Affirming churches in the triangle. Shawn was invited to join The Voices of Hope Choir sending him into familiar territory after growing up singing in his childhood church choir.As the church started to grow very rapidly they needed to find a bigger space to worship and that's when the church moved down the street from the original location on junction blvd.Shawn knew there had to be more to get out of A Place Called Hope and that is when he started really paying attention to the vision of growth which was necessary, while Executive Pastor was in charge of the music, she made Shawn in charge of recording services by video camera and then copying them on a disc to sell.
As the need for reaching out to the people who were unable to attend services in person, and withe technology growing into a more virtual world, Shawn started recording services through live streaming on Facebook and the YouTube platform. Now with new technology changing Shawn is now filming live services through the Switcher application that allows for us to broadcast a true TV experience for our virtual viewers. Shawn is also responsible for creating and managing the church webpage as well as developing new marketing strategies to spread the Gospel to the world.
