Sharon Lassiter was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, the daughter of the late Bobby Gray Lassiter and Helen Marie Lassiter Hatfield. She now lives in Clayton, North Carolina, with her kitty (Sophie Mae). Sharon has an older sister (Patricia) who resides in Huntsville, Alabama and a younger brother (Barry) who resides in northern Durham. In 1985, Sharon was blessed with a precious daughter, Stacy, now 32 years old, and residing in Smithfield, North Carolina, with her husband, James, and their dog, Bailey Grace and kitty, Tucker Ray. Stacy is currently in nursing school at Watts Nursing, in Durham, and James is a Paramedic for Wake County.
Sharon joined the congregation of Journey Church in May 2015 where she plays keyboards and sings with the Worship Team. As a small child at the age of 7 years old, Sharon’s mother began to realize that God had blessed her daughter with a very special gift of the ability to hear music and play it on the piano. That ability, love and passion for music is a gift from God that Sharon doesn’t take lightly and thanks God every day for being able to share it with His people.
Prior to joining the Staff of Journey Church at Southpoint (f/k/a Farrington Road Baptist Church) in 2013, Sharon worked in the area of Estate Planning and Estate Administration Law for over 25 years, and currently, in addition to her role as Secretary of Waypoint Church, Sharon works as an Independent Contractor for several organizations in the Triangle Area, including The Durham Rotary Club, Rotary District 7710 of North Carolina, The Durham-Orange Estate Planning Council, and Scenic NC.
It has always been a desire of Sharon’s to work with Christian organizations – to help further build His kingdom – she is very thankful to serve the wonderful Pastor, staff, and congregation at Waypoint Church.
