Sharon Armstrong

Hometown:   I was born in Clearwater and have lived here my whole life.

Family Info: I have been married for 47 years. My husband, John, and I grew up together in the same local church. He recently retired as Lead pastor of Harbor Life Church where he served for 25 years. We have one son, Joshua, who also lives in Clearwater. He is an AP History Teacher and Social Studies Department Head at Tarpon Springs High School.

When did you join the staff of Aldersgate? February 12, 2019. I am definitely now the new kid on the block. What did you do before joining Aldersgate? After college, I worked as office and accounting manager for local air conditioning contractor. For the past 25 years, I served along side my husband as Pastors of Harbor Life Church where I functioned as Church and School Administrator. What do you do for fun? I enjoy reading, walking and vacationing with my family. I especially love going on cruises and visiting the mountains. Favorite books? I love participating in Beth Moore Bible Studies. One of my favorite books is The Help by Kathryn Stockett but I enjoy reading all of Max Lucado’s books, classics from John Steinbeck and Murder Mysteries with a romantic twist (Hallmark style) Who has influenced you the most in ministry/life? Throughout my husband and my ministry, there have been so many people who had great influence on my life. Though I did not know him personally, Dr. Billy Graham affected my life immensely. His humility and genuine love for God and all people exemplified the true character of the Christ-follower that I aspired to be. Also, my Pastor during our teenage and young adult years, Dr. Charles Linton, had a great impact on me. He was not only a great minister of the gospel but he was also the perfect example for my husband and I to follow as a loving, caring Pastor.
