16 Mar Episode 237 | Five Talents
Sarah Herndon joined the show to talk about Five Talents, a ministry focused on eradicating extreme poverty and creating sustainable communities in nine countries by partnering with local churches to provide programs for business and literacy training.
Sarah Herndon joined the Five Talents team in March 2019. Her work centers on finding meaningful ways to more deeply involve Five Talents’ local church partners into their mission.
Sarah comes with a media and communications background. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Design and Sports Communication from James Madison University. During her senior year, Sarah caught the news bug while working as a morning production assistant for the ABC affiliate in Harrisonburg and went on to report, produce and anchor at a small station in Winchester where she also met her husband.
Two years later, she traded in her high heels for flip flops to report for WINK News in sunny Southwest Florida. When she moved back to the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia a few years later, she worked in marketing and eventually joined the Five Talents team as the Church Engagement and Events Coordinator. Sarah never totally gave up her microphone though, as she also teaches group fitness classes several days a week at two local gyms.
In her spare time, you can find Sarah and her husband, Mason chasing around their 17-month-old son, MJ. They attend Christ Church Vienna where Sarah sings in the worship band.
