“My faith journey,” Sandy said, “has been a tapestry woven with threads of family influence, personal exploration and community engagement. Raised in a home where spiritual values were paramount, my formative years were shaped by lessons of love, compassion and communal interconnectedness.”

As he grappled with existential questions, Sandy explored his faith. 

“College became a crucible for diverse perspectives, challenging and enriching my understanding of spirituality,” he said. “During this time, I found resonance with the inclusive and justice-oriented ethos of The United Methodist Church.”

Through mission trips and volunteer work, Sandy gained firsthand experiences of faith in action. “Witnessing the tangible impact of collective efforts to build communities and uplift the vulnerable,” he said, “reinforced my commitment to a faith-driven life.

“Today, my faith stands as a testament to growth, inclusivity and a resolute belief in the transformative power of service. The narrative continues to unfold, with each chapter reinforcing my connection to God, a dedication to justice and an unwavering conviction in the ability of faith to inspire positive change.”

He is excited about the next steps in his religious and professional development.
