Sharon Sweeney

Director of Connections

Sharon wears her hometown, St Louis, MO, as a badge of honor - home of the Cardinals, The Hill, and Ted Drewes Frozen Custard. She moved to Springfield in June of 1995 with her husband and daughters, and started working at Springfield First one month later. Sharon has worked at Springfield First for 25 years and feels lucky to have worked with all three "Rogers"! As the Director of Connections, Sharon greets guests, attendees, and members and helps them to find places to serve, connect, and grow. Her experience at organizing and carrying out events with volunteers spans several years, and she annually leads 11 teams of more than 70 volunteers to host a leadership conference. She believes the best way to stay connected to a church is to form relationships. Over the past 25 years, Sharon has made several treasured friendships and relationships. She loves spending time with her husband Jim and their family - Shannon (Mike and Aiden) and twins Sierra and Sydney (Raine). She also really loves reality shows!
