Sheyan was born in Sri Lanka into a Roman Catholic family and moved to Canada at the age of 5 where his parents were exposed to the Gospel and were saved. Hearing and being taught the Gospel often in the home, God brought Sheyan to a personal understanding of the Gospel and converted him before high school.
During his time at McMaster Univeristy earning a degree in Biochemistry and working alongside campus ministries, the Lord began to grow a deep desire for His Word and a love for the ministry of the local church. After graduating, Sheyan was invited to join Harvest Bible Chapel Oakville as an intern for the summer of 2015. This transitioned into a staff position at Harvest Oakville’s fifth church plant, Harvest Kelowna, that fall. Sheyan and his wife Natalie are excited to return to the GTA and join the Hope Church Toronto West family – and are eagerly expecting their first child! Sheyan is currently studying towards his Masters of Divinity at Heritage Seminary.
Sheyan is passionate about seeing the truth of God’s Word stir up the affections of God’s people for praise of God’s glory.
