Rev. Charrise Barron’s passion for the work of the local church is evident when she is serving in music ministry, preaching, or pastoring. Before acknowledging her call to ordained ministry, Charrise earned a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in computer science from Harvard University and worked around the world as a senior business systems analyst. Charrise then left the corporate, jet-setting lifestyle to enroll in Yale University’s Divinity School and Institute of Sacred Music, where she graduated with a Master of Divinity summa cum laude. Charrise is currently a PhD Candidate in African American Studies at Harvard University, with a primary field of concentration in religion, and a secondary in ethnomusicology.
