Education and Work Experience
Sherita is a faculty member in the School of Social Sciences and Human Services at Grace Christian University. She oversees the Urban Studies concentration of the Human Services degree. Sherita has earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Community Development from Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia. She also has a master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. She is presently working toward obtaining her license as a Clinical Social Worker, and she plans to begin pursuing a Ph.D. in Sociology next year. Some of her past work experiences include being an executive director of two faith-based grassroots community organizations in Kalamazoo, Michigan and Atlanta, Georgia. Similarly, she has worked as a child protective service worker, adoption recruiter, and child and family advocate.

Sherita became a follower of Jesus Christ on August 17, 1997, due to a void in her life. Shortly after her conversion she was licensed as an evangelist in 1999. In 2011, she was ordained in a non-denominational church in Atlanta, Georgia. After getting married and relocating back home to Grand Rapids, Michigan, she now pastors a church in Grand Rapids with her husband Dr. Jedidiah E. Jahaziel. The name of their church is Tachanuwnah Full-Gospel Center. Tachanuwnah comes from the Hebrew language, and it means “earnest prayer” or “one whom God has favored.” She loves working in ministry and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Her greatest joy comes from teaching, preaching, and encouraging others.
