When Oasis of Hope began in 2004 we had one employee.
Fourteen years later, we are adding our ninth staffer to join our team (in addition to our real heavy hitters —-> our many volunteers!)!
Please help Terry (Executive Director) & staff in welcoming our newest Oasis of Hope addition, Rev. Neko Sharkey, our Ministry Director!
We are thrilled to welcome Neko and his family to our team due to our continual growth and need for assistance in overseeing our youth staff, but also ministering to community folks, in addition to developing a more concentrated arm for adult ministries coming soon!
As we have grown, we have continually felt the need for these additional programs, but have lacked capacity to add them! Neko will allow us to expand what we are already doing and create additional adult-focused services.
Also, everything we do from this point forward will be a team effort in cooperation with our ministry partners, Hope City Church. Due to this, we have so much growth potential as we mutually work together, but so many logistical and strategic details to figure out as we identify exactly what this cooperation looks like.
So in addition to seeing Neko around, please also give a warm, North Memphis, hug to his sweet wife, Catrice, and his three beautiful little ladies – Kelsi, Bailee & Trinity – who have already been actively involved in Vacation Bible School, so you might already recognize them.
Neko joins our staff officially full time beginning July 22nd. Until then, he will be working part-time so if you catch him, please say hello!
To volunteer or for more information about this ministry, contact Neko. Stay up-to-date by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and Instagram, and checking our website for detailed information.
