Pastor Wayne and Sherry Sanders first accepted the call to First Baptist Church of Chardon (now Chardon Christian Fellowship) in September 1985 and have since faithfully served this church, the Chardon community, and the Greater Cleveland area. Their vision is to see the body of Christ come together in unity in order for the name of Jesus to be lifted up.

The Sanders spend a great deal of time counseling couples, using the lessons they learned in their own tumultuous first years of marriage. The Lord healed their fractured marriage and now uses Pastor and Sherry across the globe to share of Christ’s hope. They travel to Eastern Europe twice a year to minister to pastors and their wives as well as conduct marriage and family seminars.

Pastor and Sherry have one daughter, five grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Pastor and Sherry’s life verse comes from Psalm 133: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing — life forevermore.
