Pastor Sharona Drake

Sharona Drake, soon to be Sharona Sledge, is an author, creative, and urban missionary who serves as the high school and young adult pastor at Hope Community church and provides innovative solutions to problems around the world.

Through online shows, music, books, local and global service initiatives, events, and more, Sharona is a light of hope and exuberance that leads others to Christ. She asks the hard questions, creates heart-piercing music, has served in some of the most under-resourced areas in the world, and has also toured internationally as a professional singer. Even still, she says that her biggest accomplishments over the past decade have come from mentoring & dicipling dozens of young people and leading them towards Christ.
