Shannon Pharoah

Faith Community Nurse
Shannon Pharoah

Shannon is Calvary’s first Faith Community Nurse, a unique role that responds to the physical, mental and spiritual elements of health. Shannon’s career as a nurse took her to many areas within the health care profession, including cardiac care, women’s health, as well as addictions and Mental Health. Shannon felt the Lord calling her to ministry, and was drawn to the integration of faith and health. She is passionate about encouraging people to “honor God with their bodies.” Health is not our purpose in life, but health allows us to fulfill life’s purpose – which is to glorify God.

Shannon grew up in a Christian home in northern Ontario. Shannon, and her husband Greg, have 4 teenagers, all of whom are very active in ministry within the church. She has participated in various areas of ministry, including Children’s Ministry and Women’s Ministry. Shannon is thankful for the opportunity to serve by caring for members of Calvary’s congregation, as well as reaching out to the community to bring the message of hope to those in situations of adversity.
