A native of Scotland, Sandra attended Bible College in Glasgow, Scotland and went to seminary in Zurich, Switzerland. She is an ordained American Baptist minister.
Sandra has multiple connections with Green Lake Conference Center. She is the co-director of the Coaching Center (as a certified coach with the International Coach Federation); served as Lead Coach for the Center for Excellence in Congregational Leadership (CECLSM) program; and served as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors from 2009-2012. She also volunteered to coach the Quest 2011 staff team.
In Nashville she teaches at the Pastoral Leadership Academy (PLA) and coaches the post-graduate class. Prior to moving to Nashville, Sandra served for almost 10 years as an Associate Executive Minister with the American Baptist Churches of the Central Region (ABCCR) in Topeka, KS.
President Ben Mott said, “I am thrilled to have Sandra join our Executive Staff team. She brings a rich heart for serving ministry leaders in all realms. Sandra is uniquely able to connect with our donors of time, finances and prayer through her Green Lake, American Baptist, coaching and overseas ministry experiences.” Sandra added, “I feel so blessed to be called to serve the Lord in this anointed setting. I look forward to welcoming old friends and meeting many new ones as we share and explore together the beauty and the blessings of all that is GLCC. As Lanny Wolfe’s hymn title says–Surely the Presence of the Lord is in This Place.”
Sandra and her husband Don will split their time between Green Lake and Nashville. Sandra can be reached at SandraWimpelberg@glcc.org.
