LEADERSHIP

CAROL CLARKSON

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

 

After years of working side-by-side in business, Carol and her husband, Jim, assumed the leadership of Sunshine Ministries in 1995. Although Jim’s health forced him to retire in 2014, Carol continues to serve as the ministry’s Director. Beyond her administrative duties, Carol especially enjoys working directly with the people that Sunshine serves and dreaming up new and fun activities to bring joy and happiness into their lives. Working at Sunshine gives her plenty of opportunities to exercise her passion for helping others discover and use their God-given gifts and talents to find purpose and fulfillment in life.

As a very proud mom and “Mama” to two daughters and four wonderful grandkids, Carol
loves spending time with Jim and her family.

For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

  WALKER HILL

EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

 

Walker joined Sunshine Ministries’ leadership team in 2017 after 14 years in event planning and development for a youth sports organization in Atlanta, Georgia. Born and raised in Webster Groves, Missouri, he is happy to come “home” to take on the role of Development Director. His passion for interacting and building relationships with people serves him well as he works with Sunshine’s faithful donors, volunteers and partnering churches.

As the father of six small children with a wife who homeschools them all, Walker doesn’t
have much free time, but he looks forward to the day that he can return to his favorite
sport, golf, to work on lowering his handicap.

 

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”  Psalm 34:8

     BRYAN POLK

DIRECTOR OF MEN'S MINISTRY

 

Bryan’s association with Sunshine Ministries began in 1997 when he entered the Recovery Program for help to overcome his alcohol addiction. While in the program, he honed his culinary skills and got a great job at a prestigious hotel.


With a heart and a passion to “pay it forward” and help others overcome their addictions, Bryan returned to Sunshine in 1998 to serve the shelter guests. Although he still likes to keep his hands in the kitchen, his compassion for others and his leadership skills have taken him into his current role of Men’s Ministry Director.

In his free time, Bryan enjoys a good movie, bowling and serving at his church.
