Frank joined the ministerial staff of TBC in June 2015. Frank and Sharron Hawk partner together to lead a group of dedicated volunteers in the PASTORAL CARE ministry. This ministry focuses on Trinity members and their families during hospital stays, visits to assisted living facilities, and those members unable to attend church due to illness or disabilities.
Sharron joined the staff in June 2015. Sharron has her degree in Nursing from Baylor University. She also studied at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Virginia Institute of Pastoral Care. She retired after 25 years of service with the International Mission Board where she served in a variety of capacities. After serving 10 years in Nigeria she was asked to move to Richmond and direct training for short term missionaries. The last 10 years in Richmond she served as Member Care consultant where she travelled the world ministering to missionaries and their families. Since leaving the International Mission Board she returned to nursing including 6 years as a hospice nurse. She is so grateful to serve on the pastoral care team where she is able to continue to fulfill the passion God has placed in her heart. Her passion is to reflect God’s love as she walks alongside people as they are experiencing difficult days.
