Our Ministry Team

Rev. Sharon Baker (Pastor Sharon)

Pastor Sharon Baker hails from the Midwest and previously served the Marquette Park UMC in Gary, Indiana.  She was in the ministry in Indiana for more than 10 years serving churches in both rural and urban settings.  Prior to her appointment to NKUMC, she served the Moultonborough UMC in Moultonborough, NH.  Prior to answering the call to ministry, Pastor Sharon practiced law in Chicago, specializing in divorce and custody litigation.

She is single and originally requested to move to the New England Conference to be closer to family in Massachusetts.  For those of you concerned about sports allegiance, she does cheer for the Patriots, though for March Madness she’s behind the University of Indiana!
