Meet the Sharp Family


James was born in East Moline, Ill., where his home congregation is St. John’s Lutheran Church. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University Chicago, River Forest, Ill., and received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. During his time in school, he studied as an exchange student at Seminário Concórdia, São Leopoldo, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Before becoming a missionary, he served in three Lutheran high schools and, most recently, as a dual parish pastor at Nazareth Lutheran Church, Baltimore, Md., and Christ Lutheran Church, Dundalk, Md. 

Angela was born in Denison, Iowa, where her home congregation is Zion Lutheran Church. She received a bachelor’s degree in secondary education (focus areas in math and English) from Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward. Before heading to the mission field, she taught at Baltimore Lutheran School, Towson, Md.

James and Angela enjoy spending time with their four children - Elias, Ambrose, Callida and Magdalyn.

Pray for the Sharps as they serve in Uruguay. Pray for the Sharp children, that they would grow in their faith in Jesus despite living in an unbelieving country. Ask God to give His peace and strength to their family here in the United States who love and support them but miss them as well.
