Shawn Bolz: Nonreligious Guide to Dating & Being Single <———– Click this link to see the PDF

As I write this I am sitting in my house almost finished with THE FINAL EDITS on my new book: The Nonreligious Guide to dating and being single. I know its radically different then my other two books, (and don’t worry fans of my supernatural lifestyle books I have some in the works) but I really felt it was time for me to put my award winning blog series into a book. Its gone through several versions and really took my good friend and editor, Sally Hanan, to rearrange it in such a way that there was the right flow.

As the graphics guru is finishing layout right now, I felt the relief that one more project is finally coming to full term and it gives me a lot of hope for the next year. I am always a high dreamer but it takes so much work to achieve each project that I sometimes give up on something I am working on and move on before I push it all the way out the door. Last year I was determined not to do this again so I just dedicated to the projects I was focused on and this is one of the public first fruits.

Why a dating book? Because I am single and when I wrote the blog series that inspired this book it had hundreds of thousands of hits (I was told millions by MySpace but I can’t prove it because my blog crashed their servers in the early days of their development of blogs) and I still get Christians from all over the world who just haven’t felt the right amount of freedom in their relationship or single pursuit. In some ways I wrote it because it answers a lot of questions that come to me in emails, phone calls, and in person 

When you search in google the word Christian +1 more word, the most popular search term added to Christian is dating. That means that there are millions of people searching for information on what God thinks about relationships. There are some great books out there on relationships (I am not going to reference any here) but for the most part the market is barren. 1 book a year or so on dating when it is such a hot topic is ridiculous.

When I let several Christian publishers read my book they loved it but said it was quote : “Too Edgy” and needed to be changed a little if I was going to publish through them. Probably because in the book I make so many popular culture references, poke fun at body parts, talk candidly about sex, and call my book what I really wanted to name it : Shawn’s Kick Butt Guide to Dating.

So we didn’t want to change the content so we are self publishing this book digitally first and then a full release for Valentines Day.

I really need your help when it starts to come out to comment about it, review it wherever you bought it online, to facebook about it, and to even leave me feedback about it.

When you are releasing a project like this you hope it will do good because it is vulnerable and part of you. I think the quality of the project is superb though, so I have high expectations. 

Also if any of you have ideas on places to post about the book, if you are involved in dating forums or chat rooms, or you have websites and you would carry our banner that would be amazingly helpful. The book comes out before the end of the week so we can get you all the info by then.

So, heres to 2011 and projects coming about! I hope you get inspired to create too! We need your perspective on the Earth!

You can visit the website of the book even though its not ready for digital download:






WOW! What a year it’s been! 2010 was so full of activity, and we
are going to try and summarize just what you did in contributing
through prayer, partnership, or involvement with Expression58. This
summary is about you! Read it personally, and if you were not
involved with the ministry, prayer, or the finances, just pretend
you were and get excited with us! Maybe you will consider
contributing as a year end gift or committing to our prayer base in
the coming year! Also, come visit LA and see us at one of our
services, seminars, or conferences.
In 2007 we started a missions base in Los Angeles with the
intention to bring the ministry components that we were already
doing (training Christians to be awesome and ministering to the
poor) together with a church family. We didn’t know what it was
going to look like, but we knew our core DNA- Love, Creativity, and
Justice. We believe this will bring a revival culture to the
culture capital of the world, so that we can export it everywhere.
In 2010 we began to work hard on developing a structure lead by a
pioneering visionary team that could make this dream happen. I am
proud to say that it is working because of our amazing people who
are involved in the community. It is a humble, but real beginning.
A ministry like ours relies on the activation of people that we
influence, and this was our first year of activating many areas,
both internally as well as training outside ministries and groups.
You helped us to:
1) Activate many different sub ministries in E58 including the
prophetic teams, outreach, intercession, business, operations,
missions, personal transformation (inner healing & life coaching),
2) You were involved in dozens of healing miracles that happened
all year long! One of my personal favorites is a testimony from a
young man who was visiting with his youth group. He was scheduled
to get his wisdom teeth extracted when he returned from their Los
Angeles youth trip, but God took them out in the meeting. He no
longer needed the surgery! For a youth that had never seen God move
in such a personal way, it was very powerful!
3) You were involved with our prophetic ministry that was raised up
around the region to minister to our community, pastors around the
city, business leaders, entertainers, and the poor. One of my
favorite stories is a well known celebrity who was afraid of God
because of a negative spiritual experience she had in a cult years
ago. However, when we went to her house to minister to her, the
presence of God came like tangible love and set her free from
anxiety, fear, and panic that had so gripped her, and now she is
off all medication and became a Christian!

4) You were involved with the healing and life coaching of LA
people who have huge destiny and have pursued great personal
breakthrough! We had over 30 of our people attend The River, a
sexual identity healing program, and many more go through our Sozo
and Inner Healing programs.
5) You were involved with groups that brought people together
relationally: home groups, core groups, focus groups, all building
people together in love for God and one another.
6) You are what birthed our messages on family. You were apart of
ending extreme injustice in the nations, awaking creativity, seeing
revival birthed in the entertainment industry, fathering in culture
and beyond, and simply loving well.
7) You were involved with missions around the world, partnering
with sending teams from LA and other groups like Bethel Church in
Redding to Congo, Kenya, and Thailand.
− The podcast started in 2010, and we now have 5000 people + a
month who follow our free weekly messages via itunes or other
podcast services.
− A communications staff was hired late in the year to begin
assembling articles, newsletters, artwork, and other forms of
communications for a new weekly update on all that is going on in
both our ministry at large, and our local community.
− Seminars: We did a Dream Intensive Seminar with Dale Shannon, two
Soaking In the Presence of God seminars with Aileen Foos, Revival
Tours around hot spots in LA, a life coaching seminar, and a
Kingdom Finance business meeting. Nichole Feeley also trained many
in Sozo inner healing.
− Regional Classes: We hosted two prophetic classes that had over
100 people trained in the prophetic from around the region lead by
Lorri Si and Shawn Bolz. There was also a Life Coaching Class with
Dale Shannon. We hosted a free Social Justice class lead by
Jennifer Toledo and Charity Marquis and Alison Andrik did a class
for sexually broken called “Hope and Healing”
− Outreaches: We co-sponsored a Thursday outreach called “Tread”
which is a prayer/evangelism outreach in different parts of our
city across denominations. We co-sponsored a large outreach in
MacArthur Park with Praise Chapel ministries where we did healing &
prophetic ministry in the park as well as Chiropractic adjustments
and dream interpretation. We lead various teams around the city
doing treasure hunts, prophetic evangelism, and servant evangelism.
Many of our people were involved with evangelism that happened
organically in the entertainment industry.
− Foster Care/Adoption Emphasis: We lead our regional community
into adoption/foster awareness programs and services so that we
could start to take off a bite sized piece of children at risk in
the region. Several people have adopted or are in process. Others
are fostering!
− Our team spoke at 14 different churches in the region in
trainings, conferences, or services. We love our region of the
greater Southern California area, and in 2011 we are going to get
even more involved!
− Locally Shawn Bolz spoke at over 20 places including churches,
three entertainment events, several conferences, three studios, and
at a rehab center. He also lead prayer meetings with his team in
clubs, studio lots, mansions, in a bar, and on the beach. He was
also able to pray with many entertainment industry people
one-on-one all year long from all around the world who were
visiting LA. The best stories just can’t be told, but they are
happening! We are raising up teams to multiply his efforts.
We have been directly partnering with Global Childrens Movement
( ) to raise up missionaries in red
zone areas like the Congo and Sudan war zones, places with high
amounts human trafficking, and areas with many children at risk
around the world. Expression58 raised a great start up missions
budget to begin projects like establishing schools in Congo where
no other organization would dare to go. We helped build a
children’s base in Kenya, and we are partnering with programs in
South America to set up a feeding program for children at risk, and
evangelize youth prisons in Ecuador. Cassandra Basnett, one of
E58’s missionaries, is leading the charge with a GCM team in Congo.
Their progress has caused us to realize that we are called to do
things we never thought we would. We are called to partner with
Cassandra to raise up missionaries who know that their destiny lies
in war zones!
We changed our leadership structure to empower more of our team,
and build a creative input and decision making structure. There is
nothing traditional about E58. Our leadership team consists of men
and women of all ages and ethnicities. We have changed from a top
down management style into an empowerment-based leadership. We have
been blessed to have several secular business consultants and
apostolic leadership teams guiding us all year long. We are excited
to have risen up 12 directors/managers (or pastors) who volunteer
to lead each of the core departments of the church and help them
multiply and become very accessible. Their goal is not to have the
department serve them, but to serve the department by partnering
with others in the city, sponsoring other people’s ministries, or
simply raising up their own ministry within the church. What does
this look like? Our personal transformation department is great
example of this. This department covers our counseling, inner
healing, and life coaching in the church. The department leader,
Nichole Feely, doesn’t just do her version of inner healing (which
is Sozo), she is also raising up a Sozo team, connecting our other
inner healing, counseling, and life coaches that attend
Expression58 to our community, making sure that there are all kinds
of opportunities to go to regional events for our community, and is
training other churches & ministries in inner healing. Each
department leader is the process of building their department in
this way. Our empowerment-based leadership structure is all about
raising up a team of people trying to accomplish the same goals,
but with their unique vision, expressions of ministry, and
influence or abilities.
It is going to be a year of activation for Expression58. We want to
activate champions in business, entertainment, the church, and to
the poor.
1) We will be hosting more training seminars locally. These
seminars will come under the title “Expression58 School of
Activation” and will eventually turn into an actual school program.
Next year we will be doing more trainings in social justice, the
prophetic, healing, business, entertainment, and more!
2) We are going to give people at large a way to become champions
of our E58 culture by becoming more of an official part of our
ministry whether they are local or abroad. We are going to launch a
program called E58 Vision Builders. We are raising up this program
for people who want to become members of our organization from
other churches, be more connected to our church, or even just
partner with us. It will not be a church membership in a
traditional sense, but an equipping to create a missional mindset
and a sense of belonging for people whether they are apart of e58
full time or not. This is also a great way for those who don’t live
in LA to be connected to our ministry in a more tangible way.
Churches that are looking for training, and entertainment groups
who want to carry our DNA into the industry will also get to be
apart of our Vision Builders program so that they may be connected
to us wherever they live.
3) We are going to be doing even more intentional leadership
development. Our leadership team is going to go through a year long
leadership development program through Global Legacy at Bethel
church. Our core team of leaders, who support all departments, are
going to get consistent training and equipping from the leadership
base and from outside guest trainers. We are doing things like
strengths training, personality assessments, vision development,
operational development, etc. for each department and then for the
overall structure.
4) We are going to be very intentional about communicating with you
about what we are doing, what is available, and where we will be.
We are going to create a brand new website (donors needed) as well
as send our team around the world on trips and conferences that
will give many more people practical experience for who we are and
how to get involved. We are also going to release more relevant
information through our mailing list.
THANK YOU FOR READING OUR REPORT! Its people like you who make this
ministry exciting and make partnering with heaven fun.

Stay tuned as we promise to report to you as much as we can from
E58 headquarters in Los Angeles, California!

Lots of love In Jesus
May your Holidays be filled with the joy of Jesus!

Under Construction




Letter from Pastor Shawn Bolz

“Under Construction.” That is the sign that would be over us right now if we had anything that marks the identity of this season. We are literally in a gestation period quite similar to that of a catepillar.


I recently got home from a long travel spree where I was privileged to go to Indonesia and meet with an entertainment church and a business leaders conference. I also went to Bethel to their Open Heavens Conference, then to Morning Star Ministries to speak at their Kingdom Business Association. Finally I ended up at home where we have been in total restructuring. God does not seem to mind our construction process. He has been busy moving through our team as though we are fully ready to go. I love that about Him; in our weakness He is always strong and good. 


As our team explained to me what is happening in their departments, including healings and hearts touched, people activated, and new strategies, I noticed a common theme. Almost all of our Expression58 leadership team is looking at Expression58 not only as a family, but also as a missions base of servant-leadership to train our region in different themes of love, creativity, and justice. Most of them have been training in their various areas all over the city at other churches, some of which have never been open to our DNA of Christianity before. As a matter of fact, when looking back at all the pastors and churches who have been coming consistently to our services over the last year, we noticed that we have had priests, vicars, Presbyterian pastors, YWAMers, and leaders of all types. I have been in touch with our small impact over entertainers and artists, business people and such, but I was shocked to find that our team has been scheduled to speak at events, seminars, and classes universally. This led me to understand more of our process and a word I received which is now being fulfilled.


Over a year ago, I received a word from an African prophet that I was going to receive 5 gold coins to represent the talents in the Parable Of The Talents in Matthew. He said after I received those, I would receive 5 more one at a time and when I received the 10th, that we would be in a season of “Well done” where we would feel the Father’s pleasure over what we are building. In due time, we would receive an 11th talent, representing that God was putting us into a transition to receive the fullness of what we were promised. 


A few weeks later, I received 2 gold coins while in England. When I got home I received 3 gold coins in Texas. During that time, which was over a year ago, we went into a structure and operations building time so that we could create a reproducible activation model to equip and release as many people as God would send to us. This time felt like God was building the behind-the-scenes of our ministry. We have worked extremely hard with a staff of mostly volunteers and in one year we have come leaps and bounds in organization, though we still have a long way to go! 


One by one during the year, I received gold coins. Shockingly, the 10th one came a few weeks ago from a widow in our E58 family. She called it her “widows mite” and it was very significant to her, and of course it was a huge sacrifice and of significance to us. I was so touched that our “well done” prophetic fulfillment came from this dear widow who LOVES us so much (and who we love). It was so significant and such a picture. I told the team about this word I had received, as most did not know it because so much was unfulfilled I had not yet brought it to them. 


Just one week later, more of the miraculous happened. I was at a conference, in the least likely place, and the leaders of the conference gave me the final gold coin as part of my honorarium! They wanted to give it to me on 11-11 (the day the conference started), but they couldn’t because I didn’t arrive until the last day (11-14). We had the 11th in such a short period that my head was spinning. How could we be in a transition of fullness? I know its true though. I and a lot of my team are doing what we are created to do. Yes, there is a lot that is not happening and a lot that is undone, but if we focus on what God is doing, it is AMAZING. 

The coin had Ronald Reagan on it. I was prophesied over that this represented that the “Reagans” that are residing in Southern California are going to get promoted into their positions in the entertainment industry. They would have an impact on our state and eventually on the nation like Reagan did, who in my mind was one of the Presidents who helped restore our country to its original values and calling. This got me reflecting on our current season of ministry.



 This season has been a season of identifying priorities, walking out the prophetic word, and staying as hidden as possible in one of the most broadcasted cities in the nation. We want to build a lasting movement of God, so we have not been doing most of the interviews that have been requested of us. We are careful about where we broadcast our services at this point, and we have just been trying to blossom in the wilderness of LA. This email list you are on is only a few thousand people strong because although everyone is welcome and there is no exclusivity, we have been in a season of identifying who we are and how to build. So we haven’t had a “were open for business” sort of push. 


For those of you who are new to us, remember that we are also new. We are still in a season where our operational and pastoral structure is new. Each of the leaders in this ministry is doing their role for the first time, which means our experience level is not extremely strong. I have been a leader and have done leadership consultation for years, but I have never built this kind of structure on this level with this kind of wonderful vision. We are trying out all kinds of new things, from a love-driven value system. So many ministries fail in Los Angeles because of being too model-centric instead of love focused. Pray for grace and remember we are starting a community almost from scratch.  You won’t be able to inherit years of relationships here to our city, but you will be able to help us create them for future generations. You are also not inheriting a well-oiled machine in terms of structure, but a brand new, out of the box group who still are still working out the kinks of this innovative ministry. I like to see us as an experiment of love. Love never fails so it’s a good experiment to try. 


This month starts the first of many newsletters to really get you in touch with what is going on in our world, in the entertainment industry from a Christian perspective, and in the realm of kingdom justice in the red zones of the world as we are related to it. Stay tuned in for future months to hear incredible stories and see for yourself through videos and first hand reports of what God is doing.






What Has Happened


E58 the Church:


Expression58 recently held a Harvest party in place of it’s

normal Sunday service. On October 31st, members of the Expression58 Community met to celebrate the fall season with great food, games, and fun! Many Participated in Pie-eating contests, sack races, raffle drawings, are more! It was a great time to simply be with family and spread the joys of the Harvest season. We are excited to make this Harvest Party and annual tradition. Don’t miss

out on the fun next year!            





E58 the Movement:


The Prophetic Department led by Dale Shannon held a Dream Interpretation Seminar open to our community. They discussed how to interpret your dreams and the dreams of others through the biblical methods of interpretation used by Joseph and Daniel. They ended the seminar with an activation, releasing people to minister to others through dream interpretation. The seminar went great and many felt empowered to help others understand their dreams as well as find meaning in their own. 


The Prophetic Department also began a Life Coaching class. The class has been in session for a couple weeks, covering topics such as how to get life empowerment skills to fulfill your God given dreams and destiny, and how to create and live the outcomes desired in your life. There are still a few more weeks remaining in the series, but so far the class seems to be going great. Dale Shannon, who is a college professor and professional life coach, is also teaching this series.


Recently, Shawn Bolz led a Kingdom Business Meeting for business and finance professionals. Many business people gathered to meet for the purpose of hearing the voice of God and to support one another in the business world in Southern California and beyond. Shawn Bolz, author of “Keys to Heaven’s Economy,” led the meeting, and after words members of the Expression58 Prophetic Team came to minister and love on the meeting’s attendees.

Become a Supporter:  



Would you consider Expression58 for your tax deductible year end giving? We have many projects that rely on supporters like you to make them happen. Consider a one-time gift or become a partner to E58! Your donation will help us change culture from the culture capital of the world! In this season because so many of the team are volunteers and space rental is very high for meetings, we need to raise about ten thousand dollars more a month immediately if we want to get past maintenance and into vision growth.

Website: We wanted to pitch to some of our financial partners that we have an AMAZING team in line to develop a new website for us but we need some pledges towards it. It will cost roughly $20,000 and we can do this in stages. If you would like to contribute directly towards this you can state that on your donation or if you would like to donate a large amount to help pay towards it or even for it please contact Jesse Grim, who is the associate director of E58. 

Other Projects include a permanent building with space to feature the Arts, house our offices and services, and serve as a hub for our mission here in L.A. We are also looking to establish a media team with the right equipment to help build our regional and web presence, among many other exciting opportunities.

Prayer Directives:

Please join us in our prayer directives. Below are some specific areas in which we need your prayers!

* NEW SPIRITUAL CONSTRUCTION: We are truly in a new season and just need prayer for grace as we morph into an apostolic community of love who sends people into some of the most intense places in culture.

* CLARITY OF PRIORITIES: There is so much need here and we want to respond out of vision for what God wants, not out of desperation for the lack of what is not happening. Please pray that we really hear God right now. 

* BUILDING: Still praying for the perfect location. We need to work with the city to help us plant a church in our area because its very uncommon for new church plants to be part of the city and start here.

* FINANCES: We live in one of the most expensive lands in the world and we moved here during its recession. Unemployment has finally bottomed out in LA praise God! But now we need a turn around in our economy so God has to show us creative ideas that is not just tithing and support for raising our income. Please pray that He shows us new and inventive ways to create finance.

Thank you for your prayers and support! Enjoy this Holiday Season!

-The Expression58 Team

Summer Prophetic Intensives
