Sister Sherry Gregory was born again and recognized the call of God to ministry at age 17, at a youth conference called Explo ’72, in Dallas Texas at the Cotton Bowl Stadium. Sherry grew up attending church, with her family at the Springfield United Methodist Church, in Springfield, VA. Many wonderful memories are associated with her growing up with stable church-going parents, but none matches the salvation experience at that Billy Graham/Bill Bright conference.
Later on that year, at Camp Highroad in the Shenandoah Mountains, she, along with a group of teen aged friends from the Springfield United Methodist Church, was baptized in the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. What a joyful revelation, which years later would be proven to be the very thing that sustained her through many hard times and challenges of life in years to come. Sherry prayed for the ability to minister to all types of people in different cultures and social backgrounds, and truly this has come to pass in a wonderful way. The driving scripture that has been a part of Sherry’s life since she turned her life completely over to Jesus is I John 5:4-7.
Sherry believes that she is called to minister to the Body of Christ with the fullness of God’s Word, and the fullness of God’s Spirit overflowing from her as she is led by God. Sherry has often taught about the importance of the Body of Christ gaining maturity concerning ‘unity of the faith,’ the tearing down of denominational separation, as well as each born-again believer truly realizing who they are IN Christ so that they will be truly ready for the ‘Catching Away’at Jesus’ appearing in the clouds will be. (Ephesians 4:11-16).
A specific part of Sherry’s calling is ministry to women; from those in crisis, to those who are seeking to further develop the ministry that was placed in their hearts but that who have not had a chance or the correct tools by which to fulfill that calling. Bringing women out of bondage and into the freedom to BE the minister that God has called them to be; to their families, in the work place, and in the marketplace, is a deep passion of Sherry’s heart.
Pastor Sherry as a worshipper leads the Body of Christ to enjoy the true fellowship with the Lord through music ministry, and as a strong believer in the power of prayer, leads the Body of Christ into intimate fellowship with the Lord.
In December of 1995 Sherry and Bob Gregory were married and began the quest to establish their new marriage united in purpose and focus to fulfill the ministry that God had placed on the inside of both of them, individually and as a married couple. Since licensure and ordination with Jerry Savelle Ministries Int’l in 1997/98, Sherry has been serving her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in areas such as street outreach, 12-step / self help ministry, prison & jail teaching and mentoring, pastoral counseling, youth pastoring, teaching, evangelism, and senior co-pastoring. In 2015 Pastor Sherry was privileged to be ordained with the laying on of hands by Dr. Mark T. Barclay, a preacher of righteousness with whom the Lord has set Pastors Bob and Sherry with as their pastor. We know that five-fold ministers also need a Pastor and someone who can lead and guide them. Pastoring can be one of the most difficult offices to hold in the kingdom of God.
Sherry and her husband, Robert Gregory have ministered music, preaching and teaching in non-denominational, denominational, and interdenominational settings, as well as in prisons and jails at the county, state, and federal levels, in most of the states of the U.S. Having overcome alcohol and drug addiction herself, being now 28 years clean and sober, Sherry has developed an Embassy Of Christ 12-step drug and alcohol self-help program, called H.O.P.E. (Having Overcoming Power in Every Circumstance). She has led co-dependency classes, and has also developed a Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program.
In 1999, Sister Sherry, and her husband and best friend, Robert, co-founded “Embassy Of Christ International, Inc.”, a full-gospel, Word of Faith 501(c) 3 non-profit Church Corporation. Now Embassy Of Christ operates with Robert Gregory Ministries, the head organization and Advance Ministries as a licensed outreach ministry. This Holy Spirit-baptized congregation of truly world-outreaching believers is located primarily in Evansville, Indiana; endearingly renamed “Heavensville.” Sister Sherry Gregory believes with all of her heart that “Embassy Of Christ International, Inc.” is a ‘heart’ ministry from the ‘Heart’ of the Father, to people who need the Reality of Christ Jesus throughout the world. (Jeremiah 3:15) As an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, her current plans also include missions into India, and Africa with Pastor Robert and Embassy Of Christ.
Sherry is a passionate and bold, yet humble and respectful teacher, encourager and motivational speaker.
