With her personal mission statement “To help people to help themselves through God’s Word”, Sharon holds a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies through Indiana Wesley University which supported her in answering her call from God to become a Pastor. On November 12, 2018, she received her formal letter confirming she has met all requirements for licensing as a Pastor. She is continuing her studies and working towards Ordination. Her passion for guiding, loving and supporting youth and young adults has been a part of Sharon’s life and became formalized with her connection to Care Net Lehigh Valley where she was a volunteer counselor for many years and then asked to design, develop and launch an Abstinence program which is still in our Lehigh Valley public schools today. Sharon has worked in the Corporate world for 20 plus years in senior leadership roles under both Human Resources and Operations departments. Currently she is the Director of Organizational Development at First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union. God is wherever she is…. So, whether working as a leader in Corporate or a Pastor, Sharon strives to keep shining the light of Jesus in her words and actions. She believes strongly that we have one life. We do not have a personal and a professional life, we have one life. God is in it all.

Sharon and her husband Peter have been members of Faith Wesleyan Church for eight years and they believe this is where God wants them to be. Peter and Sharon have been married for 18 years (coming up on 19 years June 2021) and they have two amazing children (Colton and Sarah) who are both 30 years of age. Colton lives in California and Sarah (and Matt her Fiancé) live in PA. Though all their lives are filled with busy schedules, they very much enjoy and take advantage of the “connection times” provided whether face to face, phone or text to enjoy, celebrate, support and be a part of each other’s lives. In addition, Pete and Sharon enjoy their fun time with their four-legged child (1 cat named Prince) as well as spending quality time with their Grandson Joseph - born January 21, 2020 and with other family, friends a cruising in their 1999 Camaro Z28 SS.
