Growing up in a family that saw the importance of sharing Christ’s love motivated Sharon to attend Briercrest Bible College to study youth and counselling. It was there that she was befriended by teachers with a missionary heart who encouraged her to seek out opportunities to serve youth. And so, it was no surprise when Sharon joined YU in 1994 — and she’s been here ever since!
Now married to Dave (Abbotsford YU, Area Director), her kids have also been staff or student leaders for many years in the Jesters Theatre ministry in their hometown of Mission, BC.
Sharon has been discipling youth and equipping volunteers and student leaders for many years. In October of 2020, she transitioned to a role which will allow her to use her past experiences to support our GVYU staff team in the discipleship of volunteers. Sharon’s heart for seeing more youth in positive relationships with caring adults motivated her to take on the role of “GVYU Volunteer Coordinator”.
Currently, Sharon also mentors youth and young adults and contributes to the Abbotsford YU team (that team with the handsome, fun-loving Area Director) from time to time!
Together we can transform the world our youth live in—but we can’t do it without you.Take Action
