Hello! I'm Sheridan and am on staff with YWAM Berlin in Germany.
God's given me a passion for truth and justice. My background is in communications, journalism and media, and I want to use my professional skills and interests to highlight hope in hard places -- especially in marginalized communities facing conflict and injustice. I share God's huge heart for refugees and the Middle East, and I feel compelled to use my talents as a writer and storyteller to not only raise awareness of things happening in these communities, but also to give hope to those in the middle of the hurt. I feel God is calling me to not just be a voice, but to give voice to the voiceless. I want others to experience the love and hope of Jesus.
There are a few ways I feel God leading me to do this:
- Staffing YWAM Berlin's Discipleship Bible School, focused on Bible literacy and equipping others to learn and understand the full story of the Bible and God's heart of redemption for humanity.
- Teaching English so that I can offer practical skills to marginalized communities (especially young refugees) and empower them to tell their own stories and inspire others.
- Partnering with other ministries and missionaries in the realm of communications and media to share stories of hope and encourage others.
Berlin is a city God's really put on my heart to root myself in. The city is rich in history and opportunities. Many cultures are represented in this city, and it continues to be a safe haven for refugees from all over the world. It's exciting to see all that God is doing in Berlin!
