Sherard Burns is the founding and lead pastor for Preaching
and Leadership at Renewing Life Church.
RLC is a multi-generational and multi-cultural fellowship committed to
demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ in south Miami and beyond.
Pastor Sherard has faithfully preached the Word of God for over 26 years. He has served in various capacities of pastoral ministry since the age of 19 and is driven by a passion to see the lost converted and Christians equipped and discipled to make an impact in the world for the glory of Christ and women come to know Jesus Christ.
He earned his bachelors degree from Tuskegee University, his Masters from Reformed Theological Seminary and doctoral degree from Newburgh Theological Seminary.  He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Church Renewal at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
He is the president of Believers Bible College and Seminary (BBCS). He, along with several other pastors, started BBCS in 2012 to meet the theological needs of Christians who desire a solid Bible education but cannot leave or afford the tuition costs of most schools. They have had two graduating classes and offer degree in Bible, Theology, Pastoral Ministry and Counseling at a cost that will fit any budget.
He is an author who has contributed to books and academic journals.  He has written two books – The Word Shaped Life: Biblical Reflections for Renewing the Soul and “Christ Above Culture: A Gospel Centered Vision for Racial Harmony.”
His burden for the church has long been his desire to see the church reflect the unity that Christ accomplished on the cross.  he has traveled throughout the U.S. ad abroad conducting seminars to equip pastors to be change agents in shaping this vision in their churches.
He is married to Lisa Burns who, as he says, is his greatest advocate and supported in life and ministry. Together they have six children.
