Pastor Sandy is not your ordinary "First Lady," she knows and operates within her calling as a co-laborer in ministry. She is an ordained minister, who is humbled God uses her to prepare His people for kingdom-building through her ministry and spiritual leadership. Her desire is to see Christians move beyond spectating in the pews to reaching out and ministering to the hearts, minds, and souls of people. She is a real talk, truth-teller that ministers the truth of God's word.
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Pastor Sandy moved to the metro Detroit area in 2002. She is a graduate of Texas Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business and a MBA in Organizational Management. She was the owner and Chief Consultant of her own consulting firm that provided leadership, diversity and other training and writing services for clients throughout the US and Canada. She is passionate about providing those same services to the body of Christ. "I am excited by the opportunity to minister the liberating Gospel to others. I want both believers and non-believers to know that God can transform their situations and their lives." She knows that only by the truth of the Word of God and His power, that we all can be set free from past hurts, sin, and mediocrity.
She leads Serenity's women ministry, the Women of Purpose. "Every week I am challenged and I challenge our women and young ladies to take the rejections, heartaches and sins of the past and plant them in God's fertile ground. The Holy Spirit will nurture what has been planted, so the newness can begin." She encourages the women to hold fast to Titus 3:1-11 and know that the pettiness of our current attitude is often a result of unresolved issues of the past. "I challenge every woman to see yourself as God sees you and bless other women with encouragement and love." In 2006, God laid it on her heart to minister to the broken and damaged hearts of women, thus Heart to Heart Fellowship was birthed. This ministry is defined as one that will encourage and equip women to desire true relationship with Christ before any other.
Her daily source of joy is Psalm 37:4, delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Unfortunately many Christians have yet to understand what "delight" really means. People delight in food, clothes, cars and other material possessions then beg and plead with God when He doesn't honor and bless their disobedience. She has learned to delight in the Lord because she knows that He is the source to greater things that she cannot access on her own.
In 2010, Pastor Sandy graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts degree in Evangelism and Church Planting. Her desire is to coach and mentor Pastors and leaders to start, grow and sustain healthy faith families. Apostle and First Lady continue to minister the truth of His Word together and stand as examples of God's continued goodness and favor. They are both a blessing to the ministry and growth taking place at Serenity Christian Church.
