Pastor Sherry Roby grew up in Louisville, KY with her parents and 2 older siblings. She was raised in a Southern Baptist home and accepted Christ when she was 10 years old and followed that action with water baptism. As a child, she aspired to be a deacon in her church but as she became a teenager, realizing her sexual orientation, she knew that would never happen in her family’s church.
Open Door Community Fellowship’s founding Pastor is Pam Ogilvie and the first church services were held in the basement of Pastor Sherry’s home. Pastor Sherry answered the call into the ministry, attended Poiema Bible Institute and was ordained as a minister of Gospel of Jesus Christ at Open Door Community Fellowship in 2001. God eventually led the founding Pastor into ministry in San Diego, CA and Pastor Sherry was made Pastor of Open Door Community Fellowship where she has pastored for 10 years.
Pastor Sherry is married to her wife, Tina Mercer-Roby, who is a member of the Board of Directors at Open Door. They reside in Mount Washington, KY with their two Jack Russell Terriers; have one adult child, Erica, and 3 beautiful granddaughters, Hayley, Rylee, and Jaelynn.
