Pastor Sandra was ordained as an Elder in 1998 but learned how to teach and preach long before that by watching her father the late Bishop Benjamin J. Crouch. At the age of 5, Sandra would imitate great preachers using the back of the toilet as her pulpit. She stayed there for hours repeating the phrase “The bible said you got to live holy. Jesus said you got to be saved” This mantra became the theme of her young life.
Although she has won numerous awards including a Grammy for her contribution to Gospel music once you hear her preach, you will never forget it. Her style is that of a dynamic and passionate servant of God who strives to make His Word relatable for all age groups. Pastor Sandra is a mentor to many who are making a difference in their communities. She has spearheaded community outreach projects, reaching thousands for Christ by organizing and sponsoring block parties, back to school programs, food giveaways and toy giveaways.
Pastor Sandra endeavors to continue the vision of the ministry, by being committed to training and sending mature believers into the world, fulfilling The Great Commission while serving the needs of people, (Matt. 28:18-20; 25:31-46) “To Know God and Make Him Known” in the Los Angeles community and around the world. Her mission is “Developing people to have a passion for God”.
Pastor Sandra serves as Senior pastor of NCMC (New Christ Memorial Church).
