Jesse Carr – Senior Pastor
Pastor Jesse was raised as a preacher’s kid – and barely survived it. He grew up in the foothills of Western North Carolina where he went to Bible College and met his wife Amy while working for Domino’s Pizza. He also used to work at a funeral home – and he will tell you about it even if you don’t ask.

He has been the senior pastor at Sharon Heights since September of 2018 where he loves showing Jesus from every page of the Bible.

He and Amy have two children, Priscilla and Asa.

In his free time Jesse likes playing blues guitar and watching Alabama Football. Roll Tide.
