Sharon Nowak serves as one of the secretaries in our ministry area. Her employment with GBC began in 2005 in the Healthy Kingdom Churches office and she transitioned into Sunday School Small Groups a year later. Prior to serving at the convention Sharon was a church ministry assistant and also had the responsibilities of Weekday Preschool teacher, Sunday School teacher, Preschool & Children’s Sunday School director, and Vacation Bible School director. She also learned a lot about working with and serving people while employed in various occupations within the food industry.
Sharon was born in Jacksonville, Florida but lived in several states growing up since her father was in the Navy and frequently transferred. The same was true after getting married to Bryan who moved them several times while working for NCR Corporation. They both now have the privilege of serving God together at GBC. They have three grown, married children and three grandchildren. In her spare time Sharon enjoys sewing, quilting, photography, cooking, traveling to National Parks, and raising two Labradoodles.
Sharon’s primary responsibilities in the SS/SGM include working with VBS, Sunday School Mentoring, resource development and inventory, calendaring, CVENT coordination, LifeWay & Field Services, SS Growth Awards, Minister of Education and SS Director networking, outreach & evangelism strategies through Sunday School and Small Groups, and Preschool/Children’s Minister networking and related issues.
