The Thrifty Preacher

Reverend Vertue Sharp was a Methodist minister and farmer who lived his life by the words of Jesus in Matthew 25 in which we are taught that whatever we do for the “least of these” we do for him.  Middlesettlements

Reverend Sharp sought to live out this teaching by leaving his estate of $2 million to two eastern Tennessee area hospitals upon is death in 1999 at the age of 94.  Reverend Sharp accumulated his wealth thanks to wise investing, frugal living, and the sale of his farm.

Thanks to Vertue Sharp and his selfless generosity, many of eastern Tennessee’s most vulnerable residents will receive the care and attention they need to live healthy and happy lives.  Another Surprise Millionaire lives out their life’s mission by helping others in their community.
