Today In Black History: Bishop J. Drew Sheard & How Churches Have Had To Pivot In This Season

Today I talked to Bishop J. Drew Sheard, Senior Pastor of Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of Church of God in Christ right here in Detroit. Bishop Sheard and his family have been personally impacted by COVID-19 but in the midst of it all have been a tremendous help to people and churches by offering additional COVID relief money to local communities, providing monthly food donations, raising $100k for churches around the country that have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and more.

A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Bishop Sheard is the co-founder (along with his Wife Karen Clark Sheard) of Karew Records, a record label focusing on Gospel, Christian and inspirational music. As a prominent leader in COGIC, he is currently running for Board as he hopes to elevate and impact the ministry for the modern day church.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
