ATLANTA — Former Memphian Shun McCoy engaged in the entrepreneurial industry in early 2012.
After functioning initially “behind the scenes,” McCoy, a devoted Christian who currently resides in Atlanta, sensed it was time to earnestly exercise her faith by putting her business venture on display before the masses.
A 2005 Memphis Whitehaven High graduate, McCoy, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of We Work For Jesus®, a trademark establishment that is largely considered a “movement,” according to McCoy, as well as a clothing and jewelry line.
Having officially been installed for public operations on January 1, 2014, WWFJ’s mission according to McCoy is to save as many souls as she can while simultaneously testifying why she steadfastly works for Jesus.
For the rest of her life.
“Our mission is to spread ‘WWFJ We Work For Jesus’ as a way of acting out and doing His word, and not just hearing it,” McCoy explained during a recent interview with longtime journalist Andre Johnson. It’s to show the world that not all middle-aged, youth and young adults are rebels without home-training, respect, or lack the tenacity to believe, trust and remain faithful to God.”
So committed is McCoy’s newfound venture to routinely lifting up Almighty God and drawing others to Christ that another key ingredient to ensuring that WWFJ remains a viable public presence is to function in excellence, let alone with the right motives.
“We Move With A Purpose,” McCoy explained. “We are determined to save as many souls as possible by Working For Jesus while showing the most important thing of all — love.”
Besides having excelled in such a brief time frame as a ministry, or sorts, WWFJ has expanded immensely in that it offers people from various walks of life an assortment of jewelry and paraphernalia accompanied by the familiar acronym, “WWFJ.”
This movement, McCoy acknowledges, is geared toward individuals of all ages, regardless of their race, creed, or color.

“I pray that you wear WWFJ We Work For Jesus® on your person via bracelets, shirts, hats boldly so that you may brag just as many brag on wearing designer labels.”
As McCoy quickly pointed out, she’s confident her flourishing mission and ministry will ultimately become a familiar, yet identifiable force as it pertains to reaching others via the hedges and highways and byways, as Jesus specifically admonishes us according to Luke 14:23.
“I would like for WWFJ We Work For Jesus® to be seen on cars, notebooks, and buildings,” McCoy said. “Not only would this be a reminder of how we are working for Jesus, but it should inspire us to continue to do so in our daily lives. We are here to do His will and work for Him in an effort to give God the glory in it all. When it’s all said and done, we want to make sure you have your business straight with God.”
By and large, WWFJ is surely on the move, given McCoy has worked intensely at building her brand in recent years.
Besides emerging as a business owner, McCoy has an Associate’s Degree in Medical Administration and is credited for having completed two years of Nursing School at Baptist College of Nursing in Memphis. Consequently, she earned her licensing as a Board Certified Estitician and Nail Technician from International School of Skin and Nails before the Chicago native mastered McDonald’s Management program through Hamburger University in Oakbrook, Illinois.
To her credit, she has garnered 32 college hours for management.
However, as it stands, her rising business venture is her primary focus.
Which, of course, is why McCoy realizes it is imperative that her movement esteems others daily, as Paul reminds us, according to Philippian 2:3.
“I really believe that everybody needs somebody sometimes and not everyone has someone to tell them when they’ve veered off the path,” McCoy explained. “I really live by 1 Corinthians 15:58: ‘Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.’ It’s not always about what you can get but what you can give, and give from the heart, knowing that you have planted good seeds and you’ll be rewarded accordingly.”
