You see it in the ways this community is drawn together to worship, the ways we support one another, and in our commitment to follow where Jesus is leading us to serve others.

Pastor Dominique joined the ministry of Sharon Lutheran in February 2017. She is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA, and studied Social Work at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. Sharon Lutheran is her first call as an ordained pastor.
