Sharry grew up in Lima, OH. She heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time at a Good News Club in her elementary school when she was 9 years old. She gave her heart to Jesus that day. God used that as a turning point in the lives of her parents as they recommitted their lives to Christ.As a sophomore in High School she attended a National Youth Conference where she sensed God's call on her life for fulltime ministry. She graduated from Crown College with a degree in Christian Education/Youth Ministry and became the second full-time female Youth Pastor in the denomination in which she was serving. It was during that time she reconnected Greg and they were married November 24, 1990.
Sharry has loved serving alongside Greg in student ministries as well as teaching women's Bible studies and leading small groups. However, her greatest role is that of being a mom. Her only daughter Emily was 3 1/2 years old when she died from a cancerous brain tumor in 1997. It is a heartache that has transformed and shaped their deeper relationship with Jesus. She also has three sons: Matthew, Nathan and Andrew.
Sharry is an engaging teacher/speaker and leader who is committed to helping people live in the freedom of Jesus. She enjoys a good Chai Tea latte, cooking/baking, cheering for her sons playing soccer and band concerts.
