Angela Sanders


Encouraging believers. Equipping the Church.

 

Welcome!

My name is Angela Sanders. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I believe He died on the cross in obedience to my Heavenly Father for His glory and rose from the dead three days later so I could find salvation from sin and eternal life by grace through faith in Him. I responded to this Gospel by repenting of my sin and surrendering control of my life to Jesus when I was six with the help of my parents, and the Holy Spirit changed me into something brand new. I was baptized shortly thereafter to illustrate this regeneration to the world. When I was ten, the same Holy Spirit Who wooed me to repentance me also called me to ministry.

It has been and continues to be my joy and profound privilege to combine my God-given communication skills with my spiritual gifts--teaching, discernment, and prophesy--to serve Him in whatever capacity He orchestrates. 

My husband Todd and I have been enthusiastic partners in life and ministry for almost thirty years. He is my rock and very best friend. Our adult children--Hope, Hunter, and Hunter's wife Mackenzie--have always been and continue to be a constant source of support, encouragement, and inspiration. Time with them is a gift.

 

What I do

A Christian writer/editor and speaker/trainer, I believe God has called me to communicate the truth found in His Word, the Bible, in a simple, accessible way and help others do the same for the advancement of His Kingdom and ultimate glory.

Writer/Editor

Whether I'm working to communicate my own thoughts and ideas or helping others communicate theirs, nothing brings me more joy than using my writing skills to help people understand the Bible, apply it to their own lives, and respond to God in obedience.

Speaker/Trainer

Although I prefer the page to the stage, God has called me to both, and I consider it a profound privilege to speak truth into people's lives. Evangelism and application are my strengths. I treasure every opportunity to share what God has accomplished through Jesus, my Savior and Lord, and encourage others to embrace the freedom and purpose I've found by grace through faith in Him. 

I also enjoy passing along what I've learned during 25+ years in ministry. My experience lies in evangelism, youth ministry, small groups, and girls' ministry.

The Baptist Messenger

“Can anyone name one of the twelve apostles?” Ebbing at the altar steps, tiny bodies form a choppy sea that ripples in all directions, a spotlight their temporary sun.   
I scan the throng for my child’s face and find it, front and center.  Eager, her chin is tilted toward the man giving the children’s sermon, a trusted friend...

The Baptist Messenger

“In Jesus’ name, Amen.” When I was little, this was a decorative phrase, a finishing touch that made me feel like one of the grownups who prayed out loud in church. Speaking it, I felt big and half-wished we were Catholic so I could cross myself...
