Sandra G. Thrash
Ordained a minister of the gospel in 1998, Elder Sandy (as she prefers to be called) has worked with her husband, Lead Pastor Robert Thrash, since the inception of this ministry. She also worked alongside her mother-in-law, Supt. Victoria L. Thrash, to grow the ministry and carry out the vision God had given to her, its founder.
She sometimes jokes that she has held almost every position at A.R.M.E.D. except that of Men Ministries Director. She continues to work in the ministry in various capacities. Her heart, though, is teaching. She is an avid student of God’s Word and loves to share it with others.
She is the mother of five: Bruce, Tania, Nicole, Rob IV, and Shari. She loves (and spoils) her eight grandchildren: Cornelio (C.J.), Victoria (Tori), Ojani, Ozmel, Brooke, Sye, Nicholas and Leah. “If I had known it was this much fun being a grandparent, I would have skipped the children.”
In her spare time she:
Loves, loves, loves to read
Does Crossword Puzzles
Loves to cook for her extended family
Trivia: One of 14 children and was born in Connecticut.
