Meet Pastor Sharon Stokes! Pastor Sharon is the founder of Stokes Ministry!
Pastor Sharon became ordained in 2009 and began officating funerals and small weddings. Wanting to give back to her community, Pastor Sharon started Stokes Ministry in 2016. The ministry was a way to help her community and teach an understanding of the bible.
Since starting the ministry Pastor Sharon has really found a love for officiating weddings. Helping two people make a commitment to one another for the rest of their lives is the greatest joy one can have.
Pastor Sharon & Julie, wife of pastor, credit their amazing relationship with each other to their strong relationship with God and with the community He created around us. They help everyone in getting closer to their faith, a faith that doesn't judge you on your race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other factor. God loves us all and they show God's love in everything they do from soup kitchens, in affirmations of love, and for people at every stage in life from Baptism to Funerals.
