Minister Sharlene Mullings is the proud mother of three beautiful, smart, and educated children: Tynika, Tationa, and Raynard Ware and the grandmother of seven grandchildren: Tyree, Khilah, Nevaeh, Harmoni, Serenity, Cameron, and Zion. She is a native Washingtonian, a woman on the move for the Lord, who has overcome many obstacles.

Her favorite motto is “God can do anything but fail.” She Graduated from DC Schools and after 15 years, decided to further her education and do what most thought could not be done; enrolled in two colleges at the same time. She holds a BA in Business Administration, a BA in Biblical Studies, and Masters in Biblical Counseling. Years later, she received her Doctorate with honors in 2020. She also had certifications in mental health and substance abuse. In 2007, she was ordained by Bishop Joseph M. Showell of Gospel Ark Temple Bible Way. As she transitioned to North Carolina, she is now under the leadership of Apostle Tonyan Grace Schoefield of The Citadel of Life Community Church. Aside from her many talents and gifts, Minister Sharlene serves as a certified North Carolina Notary and she is the founder of Unity 4 Us Community Outreach (, an organization that is focused on uplifting communities in Gastonia, NC, and surrounding cities.

Sharlene’s zeal for life, relationships, and the community causes her to continually build, implement, research, and ‘try it out. She is unafraid to meet new people, travel to new places, or tread on new ideas and execute. She is compassionate and vast in the business of building. You can find her in many places because she believes that ministry is not just about being in the pulpit… She is also the CEO of Marketing and Production for Do It Production, LLC.
