Sharon Bartmer, youth minister

Sharon is the wife of Pastor Tom and has been very instrumental for the cause of Christ when it comes to youth and children's ministry.   Sharon came to faith in the Lord Jesus when she was 8 years old through the witness of her AWANA leader in the church she attended.  From early on, the AWANA ministry was very influential in Sharon's life.  So it is not surprising that as she grew older, her involvement in AWANA grew as well.  In fact, she was instrumental in bringing the very first AWANA program to the Lakeland Baptist Association of Wisconsin in 1986.  Together with her husband Tom, the two of them have started and led three AWANA clubs in church ministries in Kenosha, Wisconsin; Zion, Illinois; and North Chicago, IL.

Sharon has been the youth director for various church ministries in the area.  She currently serves as a youth minister of Lighthouse Church of Antioch, teaching the Saturday Safari program on Saturday evenings, and leading the D-Day for Kids Ministry on Tuesday evenings.
