Sherrie grew up in a home where going to church was “the norm.” Even though she went to church regularly, there is one particular Sunday night that stands out in her mind as a most important one. A singing group was visiting their church and it was that night she understood her need for a Savior. Though she had been a “good” child, it was not enough for God’s standards. Only Jesus could take away her sin and give her the surety that she would be in heaven one day. That night Sherrie surrendered her heart to Jesus.
Sherrie attended college at Clarks Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College of PA). It was there that God began to grow in her a passion for His Word. During her time studying one night, she was challenged to truly believe what she was studying. She determined that night to live her life entirely for God-no holds barred. Today she uses the words, “like crazy” to describe her passion for life.
Currently, Sherrie is a Professor and Chair at Clarks Summit University in the Health and Human Performance Department.
Sherrie enjoys reading, good coffee, good conversation (especially with good coffee!), being outdoors in the summer, quiet times with God, music, and doing almost anything with good friends.
Sherrie is a gifted communicator of God’s Word and is committed to teaching the truth of the Word and allowing God’s Spirit to use it in the lives of its hearers. She enjoys helping those to whom she is speaking see His Word in a fresh way. It is the Word that changes people, nothing else. Jesus compared His words to a wellspring in John 4. He said that His Word in us would be like a spring of living water that wells up within us. Sherrie shares from that very overflow in her as she speaks. Her desire is that her listeners would find the overflow of Jesus in their own hearts.
Sherrie speaks to many different groups and uses each opportunity to teach God’s Word in a way that is straightforward, challenging, and easy to understand.
Denbigh Baptist Church WOW team is excited to welcome Sherrie’s ministry for this special day of fellowship, encouragement, and worship.
