Sherry was born and raised in Bartow, Florida and spent years in Hawaii and Connecticut before moving to Tulsa in 1976. She is married to John Bass and they have four children and one grandchild.
Sherry was a Music Assistant at Gracemont Church (Now The Church @ Battlecreek) for six years; she worked in Christian publishing for 12 years; she currently manages her own part-time business assisting in the Christian publishing, gifts and e-books markets. And Evergreen was happy to add her to the staff just recently as an Administrative Assistant.
Not only has Sherry been employed in the Christian arena for many years, she has been in volunteer service to the church in a variety of ways including time as a first grade children’s Sunday School Director and Children’s choir director, a Precept Leader, and member of church Worship teams and adult choirs. At Evergreen she serves with the Worship Team and choir while also serving alongside John as a Life Group Shepherd.
Sherry is passionate about worship, especially when serving on the worship team and watching as the Evergreen family worships together, joining hearts and voices in praise to the Lord.
Another of her great joys is having all of their kids, with spouses, and their grandson around the dinner table talking at once and laughing together over a crazy game of cards. Her free time might be spent reading, cooking, doing needlework, or taking road trips with her “Great Escape Girlfriends”.
Those who know Sherry might tell you that she is an avid football fan, as evidenced by just watching her watch a football game! But they might be surprised to know that she once dreamed of being a flight attendant and even interviewed with Braniff Airlines—many moons ago.
