  • sherri Smith

    Director of ministries

    Sherri accepted Christ as a teenager but drew away from her faith and eventually found things weren’t working out so well on her own. Once she came back to Christ (as a late bloomer), her path became more clear. She finished her BA in Social Science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and was fortunate to find and attend City Bible Church where she was later hired as the Administrative Assistant in April of 2008. During her time with CBC she accepted more responsibility and her position merged into what is now the Director of Ministries.


    Sherri and her husband Sonny have three grown daughters and two granddaughters. She is an avid animal lover and has four dogs and three cats sharing their home. She also enjoys reading a good mystery novel now and then and exercising.
