LaShawn Youngblood was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA until the age of twelve. She moved To Los Angeles, CA where she sat under the ministry of World Won For Christ Ministries, the late Wayne S.

She was active in World Won for Christ Youth Department, Youth and Adult Choir and Usher Board and served in the church’s restaurant.
In ministry since 1991, she has been instrumental in the development of several ministries, in 2003 she was elevated to the office of Pastoral leadership overseeing our Women’s Ministries and working with her husband on a host of other activities.
Pastor LaShawn is always there to be an intercessor for partners of The Life Church or anyone else, she has a mission to see people live a wholesome life. As joint heirs of Christ we have been given the freedom to be healed physically and emotionally from the experiences of life. Lady (as she is fondly called) encourages everyone she comes in contact with to embrace all that God has for them and allow the joy of the Lord to strengthen them daily. When it comes to Lady you can find her teaching a word from the Lord, offering a prayer, a kind word, singing, or sharing a laugh. She is very supportive of her church family; she is loved and respected for it.
She is a partner with The Difference Makers Agency and is building a business entitled “Lady’s Cakes” (which specializes in assorted pound cakes). LaShawn loves to coordinate events, travel, watch movies and spend time with family. She is the wife of Duane E. Youngblood and they have six beautiful children: Christa, Jeanette, Derek, Daniel, Ellise, and Christina along with a host of other sons and daughters. They have also been blessed with ten grandchildren.
