Sherika Chew, Director of Marriage & Family Ministry

sherika-headshotSherika Chew started with FHI as a prayer counseling intern, and now serves as Director of Marriage & Family Ministry. She is excited to use her gifts to introduce churches and ministries in her hometown of Richmond, Virginia, to the benefits of prayer counseling. Her hope is for the body of Christ in her community to start making prayer counseling a part of their everyday spiritual disciplines.

God has allowed Sherika to overcome some very difficult circumstances in order to build her testimony. She is a woman in passionate pursuit of the heart of God because she has come to see how relentlessly He pursues her. She is very grateful for every hardship and trial she has faced throughout her over twenty years of walking with Christ, because each one has afforded her the opportunity to know Him better. Her willingness to allow God to use these tough situations for His glory has afforded her countless opportunities to use her story to encourage and spur others on to good works in their own lives.

She has had the privilege to serve on several ministry teams for many different local churches throughout the Richmond area, in addition to the numerous small group ministries she has cofounded. She is a gifted communicator, and has been known to refer to herself as a bridge. She has a knack for understanding scripture, and for translating the Word of God in very practical and tangible ways that can be easily applied by diverse people groups from all walks of life. Sherika is passionate about helping people to recognize and walk in their God given identities and callings. She believes that God wastes no circumstance that is wholly surrendered to him and devotes her life and ministry to helping others get “unstuck” by viewing their lives through the lens of heaven.

Currently, in addition to her ministry work, Sherika is pursuing a degree in Social Science. Her hobbies include reading, getting to know new people, playing spades, and caring for other people’s children. She is privileged to be mom to three of the coolest teenagers on the planet, not to mention the countless others God has allowed her to “collect” over the years, and she considers this to be her greatest accomplishment.
