The Sweet Selah Ministries Team
Meet the Team
Annetta Works-Salley is our prayer call manager. Four times a year, we plan to meet by phone with others who long for a resurgence in the practice of a daily quiet time with God. We call these Selah Prayer Moment calls. We are going to pray that our slogan, taking time to know God and love Him more and more, will become a reality in women’s lives across our nation. Annetta is blessed to come from a mighty line of praying women. Her love for the Lord and her passion for prayer is wonderful. Thank you, Annetta, for serving the ministry in this way.
Bonnie Kretchman is our Publicity and Contracts Manager. She fields calls from those inquiring about talks and events and makes arrangements that fit within budget and time constraints. She also actively seeks out opportunities for us to share the Sweet Selah message. In addition, Bonnie is a great help in frequently driving Sharon to and from events. What a blessing she is.
Carrie Sholes is our Twitter and Instagram Manager. She creates hashtags like #sweetselahmovement and #sweetselahjourney to ensure that our graphic quotes and blogs draw social media attention. It’s a six-day-a-week job to keep up, and we are very grateful for her diligence.
Debbie Allen is our Shop Site Co-Manager. Along with Denise Nelson, she shops for products imprinted with meaningful words or verses that encourage women to stop and take time away with God. From mugs and pictures to journals, pens, Bible covers, and Sweet Selah bags, Debbie finds the best products available. She and Denise make sure that everything we sell fits with our mission and vision—calling women to quiet time with God. Check out our products at the SHOP tab on this website—and thank you, Debbie, for making this possible.
Denise Nelson is our Shop Site Co-Manager and Secretary. Denise works with Debbie in all the responsibilities listed above, selecting wonderful gift items that reflect our mission and vision. In addition, Denise assists Sharon as secretary, readily available to purchase greeting cards, edit our podcast transcripts, create an excel spreadsheet, or perform a multitude of other office tasks with diligence and accuracy. Thank you, Denise!
Jan Peck is our Editor. She works from a distance, keeping in close touch via email and phone. Jan checks for spelling, grammar, and phrasing to ensure our written material is of the highest quality. In addition, she collaborates with Sharon in making sure our content is biblically sound. Jan also has the formidable task of editing Sharon’s books. We are grateful for Jan’s eye for detail.
Jenny Cardinal is our Finance Manager. She keeps accurate records of all our receipts and purchases and pays our bills. Jenny creates quarterly statements for our donor base and maintains our savings and checking accounts. Jenny also reports to our Board Treasurer guaranteeing double accountability with our finances to maintain the highest degree of integrity as a nonprofit organization. We are grateful for her diligence.
Karen Barner is our Graphic Designer. She brings years of experience in creative design to our team. Among other tasks, Karen creates the graphics that feature our quotes of the day. We are blessed to have her on board. We thank God for the excellent service of our two previous designers, Kathryn Bailey and Marie Chanowitz. Many of the wonderful graphics you still see on Facebook and our website are from these fine artists.
Lois Wolter is our Website Manager and Technical Advisor. She played a huge role in launching Sweet Selah Ministries along with Sharon in 2017. Lois developed our website with the assistance of wonderful graphic designer, Kara May LaPierre. Lois maintains our web pages, creates and manages our email lists, and answers thousands of questions from Sharon on all things technical. We literally could not have started this ministry without her. Thank you, Lois!
Meaghan Schoff is our Office Manager. Her duties are plentiful! Meaghan posts our graphics, keeps track of inventory, organizes retreat folders, and so much more. In addition, she helps Sharon keep her office tidy. We are so grateful for her cheery, organized self. Meaghan comes to us with a background in administrative work. Her arrival has been timely, as our office has grown beyond the ability of one person to manage. Thank you, Meaghan, for taking on this diverse role!
Nicole Olstad is our Podcast Co-host with Sharon. Nicole is the only team member who came on board initially with no specific task or title. Both Sharon and Nicole felt a prompting from the Holy Spirit that she should join. Some time later when the possibility of a podcast was discussed, God’s guiding became evident that Nicole was His choice to help launch and cohost our podcasts. Check out The Sweet Selah Moments Podcast. Nicole and Sharon are experiencing great joy producing them with WORD Radio, our partner in this endeavor, and we rejoice that God had an assignment for Nicole all along!
Sharon Gamble is the Founder and Director of Sweet Selah Ministries. God called her to the joyful task of encouraging women to stop and spend time with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, no matter how busy their lives seemed. Through writing and speaking, Sharon spreads this message of soul rest. Writing includes blogs, Bible studies, social media, and books; speaking includes conferences, retreats, and day events. She freely admits that none of this would be possible without the help of this amazing team. Thank you, Sharon, for answering God’s call and for bringing together such a fine, godly team of women.
