About Sharon

Steve & I both enjoy working with the children and families at St. Giles.  Our heart is to see our kids grow into mighty men and women of God who know and love Him intimately.  I have had the privilege of serving on the St. Giles Staff since returning from mission work in Poland in 1995.  I became the Children’s Ministry Director in 1997 and met Steve several years later at a Children’s Ministry Conference.  We were married here at St. Giles and are so thankful for our church family.  We enjoy spending time outside in God’s creation hiking in the mountains, walking on the beach or just relaxing in our own backyard and know we are so blessed in this great adventure with Him!
