Sandy has been a long-time active youth minister in the tri-cities community and has been involved with First Priority over the years. She holds a degree in early childhood education and worked for Head Start as a teacher and volunteer coordinator for 10 years before being called into High School ministry. She has been on staff at Covenant Life Church in Grand Haven since 1995, with a five-year break from that position to work with Young Life. Sandy continues to work for Covenant Life as their Senior High Youth Director and will continue in that role.
Sandy, and her husband Jeff believe that being involved in ministry has been their biggest calling in life outside of raising their three children. She brings high energy to First Priority and is a take-charge servant for our Lord Jesus Christ. Her love for the Lord and all his children drives her to lead First Priority into the future and bring the Hope of Christ to every student.
