Sharon Bolan is a minister of the gospel with the passion to see people saved, lives transformed, and believers empowered to do mighty exploits for the Lord. She speaks on topics of salvation, healing, pursuing God’s will, and developing an effective prayer life.
Sharon was raised in a Christian home in exotic British Guyana. After graduating, she was approached by a photographer who mistook her for a fashion model. “You need to be on the runway,” he told her. Sharon took his advice and pursued a career in the modeling industry. After several years, she landed a lucrative overseas modeling contract. Her dream of fame and fortune was finally within her grasp, but there was still emptiness inside. Coming from a Christian home, it didn’t take long for her to realize what was missing. She knew that she had strayed from God.
“One night, I got down on my knees and prayed,” Sharon says. “And it wasn’t one of those 911-prayers. It was a prayer of genuine repentance and recommitment. I told God that I realized how far away from Him I was, that my lifestyle was not fulfilling me, that I wasn’t right with Him. I asked Him to forgive me and help me to know Him again.” After that prayer, her world began to change. Sharon became ill. She was so ill she couldn’t get out of bed. She sought medical attention, but doctors could not find anything wrong.
After numerous CAT scans, MRIs, EKGs, EEGs, the doctors still could not find the problem. All of this left Sharon crying out to God in desperation. “God, why are You doing this to me when I am trying to turn my life around and come back to You?” She received no answer. She would stay in her parent’s home, too sick to be on her own, for the next two years. This independent, high-energy woman was reduced to a feeble individual struggling to survive.
Finally, in desperation, Sharon tested God’s Word. Starting in Genesis, she began memorizing and personalizing every verse she could find in the Bible that dealt with healing. She spent hours alone with God in prayer and reading the Word. That’s when she began to experience a love for the Lord that she had never known.
While Sharon was growing stronger spiritually, physically she was getting weaker by the day. She remembers the night when she was awakened by a sense of impending death. She began to cry out to God, “Lord, please let me live. Please let me do something for You with the life You have given me here on earth. I promise, if You let me live, I will do anything You ask. I will totally surrender everything to You.”
It was at that moment Sharon heard the voice of God say, “Speak the Word and you will live.” After two years of memorizing healing scriptures, the only “word” that came to mind was “The Lord is my strength.” Fighting for breath, Sharon gasped out those words. Instantly, the sense of doom left. Sharon regained her strength and within a month was totally recovered.
Grateful for a second chance, she kept the promise she had made to God. She abandoned the modeling industry and answered the call of God to preach His gospel to the world. She began Fullness of Glory Ministries, a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. She presides as President with a Board of Directors.
As an evangelist, she travels and preaches the saving and healing gospel of Jesus Christ. Her call to preach and her walk with God are both unique. She considers herself and ordinary girl with an extraordinary calling. Her first book, “The Ride Against the Tide,” was released in the fall of 2022.
Today, Sharon is raising an army of 1 million Americans who are committed to praying for change in our nation on a daily basis. She believes as the Bible says, that where two or more are gathered together in one accord, God is in their midst. Her desire is to see national transformation as God’s people rise up and stand in the gap for their families, friends, communities and nation.
