Sandy started life with missionary parents in Angola. She attended a missionary kids boarding school before returning to Canada. Her Mom was a faithful Sunday School teacher who taught her own kids and the local children the good news of Jesus. Her own kids got Sunday School in the local language as well as in English and as a result, Sandy received the gift of new life with Jesus at a young age.
Sandy was involved with the Interschool Christian Fellowship in high school and InterVarsity during university years. Following graduation, she travelled Ontario with the InterVarsity student team visiting rural area high school fellowships and as InterVarsity staff in the Toronto area. She spent several years teaching and then was able to work with humanitarian aid agencies in various places as a volunteer and then on a contract basis in east Africa.
Meanwhile Sandy was studying part time at the Toronto School of Theology. She was eventually ordained as an Anglican priest and has been working in churches in the Niagara Peninsula and more recently Presbyterian churches in in Hamilton. She is delighted to join the Cheyne staff and to continue serving God’s people in Hamilton. Sandy is married to Mike. They are proud parents to three daughters and a son and delight in their seven grandchildren.
