Sean Homan, Freshwater Community Church

Sean Homan

Executive Pastor

Sean studied Theater and Criminal Justice with a focus on Sociology at the University of Akron and then went on to receive a BA in Youth Ministries from Eastern University. And yes, he knows that theater and criminal justice/sociology don’t mix. His “face for radio” and the call of God ultimately won out and led him to a career in ministry.

Sean has served in vocational ministry, both church world and parachurch ministry since 1995. For more than 20 years, Sean served in different roles within Young Life Ministries. Some of those roles include Mission Staff in Copley, Ohio, and Area Director positions for Greater Akron/Medina County, and Florence, South Carolina. Sean has also served as Youth Director for Copley UMC and as the Youth and Young Adult Minister at Northside Christian Church in Wadsworth, Ohio.

Sean and the love of his life Charleen have been married for 25 years and are blessed with three kids: Arianna, Braedyn and Chessa. With Arianna serving the Lord at a Young Life Camp in Texas, Braedyn recently engaged, and Chessa studying at the University of Akron, their house is a bit quieter these days but their hearts are full.

Sean loves coming alongside Freshwater’s staff and congregation as they walk through their faith journeys. As the leader of the office team, he has the joy of helping each person on staff fulfill their calling to shepherd and serve the church and grow in their leadership. As one of our pastors, he helps with leadership development and guides people in their discipleship with Jesus, while also leading and teaching in multiple aspects of church life. If you were to ask him what three books of the Bible he would choose if he could only choose three, he would say, “John, Nehemiah and Acts”. He’s glad he doesn’t have to choose, though.
