Sharon is the daughter of Erroll and Lynette Hulse and grew up in a manse ‘where God’s glory was regarded as more important than anything else’. She was convicted of her need of salvation around the age of eleven, was baptized and joined the church at the age of fourteen. She and Bill both studied at Cambridge, and were both heavily involved in the university Christian Union and at Eden Baptist Chapel. Two years after their marriage, and the confirmation of Bill’s call to the ministry, they studied together at Toronto Baptist Seminary for three years. Bill served as a minister at Emmanuel Evangelical Church Leamington Spa for 26 years, before taking up his position at London Seminary.
