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.
