Pastor Sheranda Burwell is a youth pastor with the heart of Christ. Her compassion causes her to not only feel what Jesus does, but to reach out and do something. The things that breaks His heart, also breaks her heart. She is the daughter of Douglas and Daphine Burwell Sr. of Richmond, Virginia.
Pastor Sheranda was educated in the Richmond Public Schools and later went on to complete her studies at Bluefield College.

Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart's desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. Feel free to e-mail our Youth Pastor at PastorSheranda@4hisglorywc.org
