Sharon Eubank is an administrator in the Welfare Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, of which she is a member. She has worked in the department since 1998 and for five years managed the Humanitarian wheelchair program, expanding its reach to 50,000 individual donations each year and implementing World Health Organization training standards. In 2008, she became regional director of the Latter-day Saint Charities for the Middle East Africa North area where she oversaw humanitarian work with active country offices in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Jordan, and Morocco. In 2011 she was appointed director of Latter-day Saint Charities worldwide, which is the humanitarian organization of the Church of Jesus Christ.

Eubank was born in 1963 in Redding, California, to Mark and Jean Eubank. Her father was a broadcasting meteorologist who retired from KSL-TV in 2006. She received a bachelor’s degree in English from Brigham Young University and served as a full-time missionary in Helsinki, Finland. Following college and missionary service, she taught English in Japan and worked as a legislative aide in the U.S. Senate for four years. She also owned a retail education store in Provo, Utah, for seven years.

Eubank served on the Relief Society general board during Julie B. Beck’s administration. She was sustained as the first counselor in the Relief Society general presidency on April 1, 2017.

In November 2020, the members of the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary general presidencies of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints launched official Instagram accounts to expand their global ministries. The Church leaders’ use of social media platforms demonstrates a desire to connect with members around the world using technology. [1]
