Shawn Stapleton, M.Div., D.Min.

Executive Director

The Rev. Dr. Shawn Stapleton was hired in April of 2024, but he is no stranger to Family Promise or the counties we serve. He was born and raised in Southeastern Wisconsin, moving to Beloit in 1994 as a newspaper reporter for the Beloit Daily News. After attending graduate school in Dubuque he returned to Beloit where he served as a pastor for a number of years. During his years of service he has worked with families of all kinds, including families entangled in the child welfare system. He is a fierce advocate for children, has taught extensively on trauma and its impacts, and works tirelessly for those who society often overlooks. As the leader of Family Promise of Greater Beloit, he instills a culture of respect and grace throughout the organization. Every family we encounter is treated with the utmost respect and compassion.
