A rich history in business and ministry....

Born in Botwood, NL, grew up in Point Leamington, graduated from BMC high school in Grand Falls in 1973 and attended Memorial University of NFLD (MUN) in St John's. Annette (Tremblett, St John's) & I were married in 1976 and a year later our daughter Sarah was born, four years later our son Philip was born.
After my first year of University studying business, I decided to join my father in the family business started by my great grandfather in 1916. By that time the business had expanded too many locations. My first venture was to start another Home Hardware franchise in Botwood, NL. Other divisions of our family business were: Home Hardware, building supplies, furniture, automotive, funeral homes and Supermarkets. Still operating today, 100 years later, is Sharron Holdings Inc. the holdings company for the real estate rental division and the ladies fashion business, Sharingtons, 388 Elizabeth Ave, St John's, NL.
At age 25, I joined the Gideon's, an organization that presents Bibles. In my 12 years with the Gideon's, I served in several camp, provincial & national positions. From 1991-1993 as the trustee for the four Canadian Atlantic provinces on the Canadian National Cabinet.
At about the age of 30 I felt the call into full time ministry.
In July of 1993, Annette myself & our two children ages 12 & 16 left Newfoundland for Phoenix AZ. At age 36, to enter into full time ministry...
After 16 years living in the US, Phoenix, AZ & Jacksonville, FL, we returned to Annette's hometown of St John's, NL. We have both Canadian & US citizenship.
Our daughter Sarah, married to Charles Walker, and 5 grandchildren live in Durham, NC. Our son Phil lives with us...
