About Pastor Sharon Akinmola
As a little girl, Sharon Akinmola had a simple desire; to someday provide a nurturing home and create a God fearing atmosphere for her family, a vision that has become reality for as she lives today as the wife of Bankole Akinmola. Born in Atlanta Georgia, Sharon is the epitome of a true Southern belle! She is warm, gentle and full of grace; a grace that enables her to touch the lives of many women in a profound and life altering way.
Sharon’s dream for a God fearing home is one she translates into ministry as the Director of “WOW (World Outreach Women). Through her leadership, many homes have been restored to God’s order for the family as women are learning once again how to submit first to God, and then to their husbands. Sharon is particular about women’s wholeness/health issues, dealing with the total woman—her spirit, body and mind. She is convinced that many women are trapped/imprisoned in their minds and believes the approach to their deliverance is simple, “be transformed by the renewing of your minds” daily! (Romans 12:2). As such, she has held many seminars and teachings on such topics as Godly Women of the Bible, Ashes to Beauty (discovering your inner beauty, grooming, personal hygiene and etiquette); Submission in Marriage, Living Healthy Lives, and Raising God Fearing Children. Her desire is to steer women into a deeper study of the word of God, particularly the study of the godly women of the Bible. A hard working mother of 3, you’ll be hard pressed to find her sitting idle; she lives and leads by example.
Known for her favorite maxim “stand by your man”, Sharon is her husband’s greatest supporter, ally, and cheerleader! During their numerous travels around the world, Bank and Sharon were moved by what they consider the disintegration of the family unit; it became increasingly apparent to them that one of the main reasons the church is in such turmoil is because families are severely challenged, and marriages troubled. God began to steer their hearts toward teaching, healing and restoring families back to Him. They are certain that when the family is whole the church and indeed the nation will be whole again!
