  • Sharon JOHNSTON

    ONE Kids Pastor

    As a public school teacher with a Bachelor of Education from Wilfred Laurier University, Sharon has had over 6 years of experience developing curriculum and programming for kids of all ages. Her love for teaching is only surpassed by her love for what she learns in return. (And being a mother of two toddler boys has taught her plenty!) She truly believes that children are a gift from God and will help bring joy and restoration to the pockets of broken and hurting people of Hamilton. Her hope for ONE Kids is that the kids would connect with God on a deeper level, understand what He says about who they are, and know that through Jesus they are equipped to make an impact in this world.
