REGIONAL ADVANCEMENT DIRECTOR
After serving 14 years as the Executive Director for Beautiful Womanhood, a mentoring ministry she founded in 2003, Sandy Ralya sensed the Holy Spirit’s voice leading her out of one ministry and into another. “When I realized I’d fulfilled the mission and vision God dropped into my heart in 2001, I received the peace and courage I needed to follow where the Spirit was leading,” Sandy shares.
Discovering Multiplication Network Ministries (MNM) encouraged Sandy that others shared her passion for healthier churches that were mission and vision focused. She believes that when churches are healthier, they will effectively impact their communities with the love of Jesus Christ and hope. In fact, when Sandy found the Take Your Church’s Pulse resource on the MNM website, she immediately forwarded it to her pastor and his wife.
MNM is a perfect fit for Sandy, who is passionate about mentoring others. “Knowing that MNM differs from 80% of other church planting organizations because they mentor, encourage, and hold accountable those who’ve been trained to plant churches really got me excited because I know from personal experience that mentoring works!”
Sandy’s passion to lead others into a vibrant relationship with Jesus inspires her to develop relationships with those who, like her, desire to fulfill God’s intent that “through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known...” (Ephesians 3:10 NIV). Multiplication Network Ministries provides Sandy the opportunity to fulfill this mission through her work in donor relations. Sandy lives in Grand Rapids, MI and has three adult children and a growing number of grandchildren who affectionately call her Granny. In her free time, Sandy enjoys shopping at yard sales for all things vintage, reading, traveling, and drinking really good coffee (black is best) with friends.
