Forever Grateful: Inside the Women of Faith Movement with the Legendary Sandi Patty


As a Church Media Director, if you are a guy, you need to have the ability to minister to both the men and women on your team. You need to make both aware of ministry opportunities available to them. We also need to learn from people who masters at their craft.

If you’ve been around ministry for longer than 15 years or so, you know the name Sandi Patty.

As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time with five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold, Sandi Patty is simply known as The Voice. Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards. She was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and as an Indiana Living Legend in 2007. She has released over 30 albums, authored 9 books, and ministered through her music for nearly four decades.

Since 2005, she has traveled with the Women of Faith movement, ministering to thousands of women across the country and around the world. She has been extremely transparent about her life and struggles and is very open about sharing her journey with others.

Sandi will join Luci Swindoll, Korie Robertson, Patsy Clairmont, Sheila Walsh and others in the upcoming Women of Faith theatrical event this weekend.

Share this opportunity with your production team. This will be a great event for the ladies on your team to find community and interact with each other.
