Pastor Wayne and Sherry Sanders have been married since 1968. The first years of their marriage were rocky and it seemed that divorce would be the unhappy ending. The Lord had other plans and restored their marriage. The rough years were not lost and those experiences are now used to help other couples in crisis.
The Sanders travel to eastern Europe up to twice a year to minister to pastors and their wives, as well as lay leaders and church families. Pastor Wayne and Sherry's hearts are to see strong marriages, strong families, and strong churches united to serve Christ.
Wayne has served as senior pastor at Chardon Christian Fellowship since 1985. While ministering to their local congregation, the Sanders also have an extensive counseling ministry to couples referred to them by other pastors.
The Sanders are blessed to live near their daughter, son-in-law and five grandchildren and two grandsons- in- law. They also shared a home with both of their widowed mothers until recently when both moved to heaven.
