Director of Operations & Mobilization
Driven by compassion for Kosovar widows in late 2000 after serving on a short-term mission trip with ForwardEdge, Sheri and her husband, David, have continued to return to the Balkans and elsewhere to facilitate short term teams. They love coming alongside those sharing the love of Jesus in their own countries. In 2005, they, along with their 3 kids, moved toAlbania for a year-long assignment recording and supporting the Albanian worship community.
Now in the empty nest phase of life, they continue their day jobs, enjoy adventures with their married kids and 4 grandkids, and remain passionate to see God's redemptive work in and through ordinary people in the local and global church.
What drew you to the mission of Forward Edge?
The fact that God uses ordinary people to serve him with whatever they have!
If you could have dinner with any person in history (except Jesus) who would it be and why?
I would have dinner with my grandpa who died before I fully understood the power of prayer. A farmer and rural college maintenance man, tennis champ, and traveling worship leader himself (he played the saw!), I've heard stories all my life of his dedication to prayer for his family — I'd like to thank him and continue to learn from him.
What is something about you others are often surprised to learn?
People are usually surprised that I'm an engineer and got to work in San Diego right next to the dock where the Navy dolphins trained.
