Hi! My name is Sherry Hall from Elkhart, Illinois. Originally from Michigan, I graduated from Traverse City High School in 1965. Even as a young girl the desire to marry a Christian was very important to me. As a result of that desire I attended Lincoln Christian College for 1 1/2 years. While at Lincoln I met and married Lacy Hall II from Elkhart Christian Church. We are the parents of three wonderful Christian children: Jennifer married to Todd Thomson, Megan married to Jay Drake and Seth married to Rachel Payne. We have nine beautiful grandchildren.
Basically a stay-at-home mom, I did work periodically as librarian/LD teacher's aide and assistant cook at Elkhart Grade School and as teacher's aide at Harvard Park Christian School. Other activities were teaching Sunday school for thirteen years, youth sponsor, and serving as church deaconess. Being involved with missions has always been important to me. As a child I aspired to be a missionary teacher but instead married and raised three children.
Through Inner City Mission's history, I have been involved with them in several different capacities including Women's Auxiliary and then as a Trustee for ten years. When Scott mentioned there was an opening in the office in Feb 2009 I jumped at the chance. No one but God would have known that in April my husband would lose his job! What a blessing for me to be working after all those years of being at home.
My desire for the Mission is to be able to enlarge our facility and have the ability to house more families. There are so many hurting and broken people in the world and that is the hardest part of this job, turning people away.
