Staff Highlight | Sherry Simon

April 15, 2021  |  Redemption AZ

We want to share our wonderful Staff with you!

Hear a bit about the people who make our church a welcoming place to come and learn about making All Of Life All For Jesus.

Thank you, Sherry Simon, for all you do for our church!

What ministries do you work in at our church, and what do you enjoy most about your job?

I’m kind of a “Jane of all Trades” around Redemption! My first love is my work with Redemption Women! I am also the Campus Event Director (weddings, funerals, events, etc.), and I have been blessed to assist with helping those in need during the pandemic with our Care Team! It was through Women’s Ministries that I was saved, so Redemption Women is truly my passion!

How long have you been at Redemption Gilbert, and what made you call this home? 

This year will be 21 years that I have been attending this amazing church. It is truly my home as I was saved here!

Tell us a bit about your family. 

My husband Roger and I have been married for 33 years! We have two pretty awesome “adult” kids – Our son, Cory, 24, works as a financial analyst for APS and he’s given us our first granddog named “Winston,” a beautiful and fun golden retriever! Our daughter, Jordan, is 21 and will graduate from ASU with her degree in bi-lingual elementary education where she will teach first grade starting in August! You might see her on some Sundays worshipping from up front too!

What is your favorite passage of scripture and why? 

ALL of James! It truly speaks to me in a practical way. Specifically James 1:2-3 “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.”

Where did you grow up?

In Phoenix – graduated from Washington High! Go Rams! Extended family is all from the “U.P.” (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan!

What was your first job? 

Besides babysitting, I was a hostess for a “trendy” restaurant.

What is one of your favorite childhood memories?

Hunting and fishing with my dad. I was the “retriever” until we got our labrador!

What’s your favorite sports team to root for?

Well, I love ALL AZ sports! I keep “praying” for my beloved Cardinals!

What’s your favorite Hymn or Christian song and why?

My favorite Christian song is “New Wine.” I love the refrain:

“Cause where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
And the Kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today.”

What’s your favorite restaurant and why? 

Too many to mention! Anything Mexican!

If you could travel anywhere in the world (if money was not a concern) where would you go and why? 

The Greek Isles! Love the Mediterranean for the water, weather and food!

What is your favorite hobby?

 I love “duning” on our quads/ATV’s and side by side (basically a small sand rail!)

If you could have any super human power, what would it be? 

I would love to fly!! I’ve always wanted to be a pilot – fighter jets were my preference!!

Do you prefer mornings or nights? 


What will always be one of your favorite family traditions?

Silly, but I love wrapping EACH stocking gift for everyone’s stocking – that way they get to open up even more “stuff” on Christmas!!
