Co-Director, Educational Consultant
Sandra A. Lovelace is an international speaker who is known for her “candor and warmth.” She holds degrees in education and communication arts. Her teaching experiences include public, private, outdoor, and home education. Sandra has lectured and consulted around the United States and in Europe and Asia. She is currently serving families around the globe as they come under the lordship of Christ. Also an award-winning writer, Sandra has written children’s Bible curriculum, has published articles on a variety of topics, and is currently working on her third manuscript.
The Lovelaces are celebrating 43 years of marriage. They’ve spent most of that time visiting and living in other cultures. These intercultural settings have given them a deep appreciation and love for the diversity of God’s people. Each of their two daughters was born in a different country, causing them to develop a counter-cultural, biblical approach to childrearing. For this reason, Curt and Sandra are especially dedicated to encouraging parents in God’s call to disciple their children.
As a couple Curt and Sandra have served on a national board for Christians in recovery. They have provided leadership to homeschool families through local support groups as well as a statewide board. The Lovelaces have worked together on television and radio. In the 1970s they served on the staff of L’Abri fellowship in Switzerland with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. Since then God has put the wealth of education and experience He has granted them to work in an ever-widening arena. In the 1990s He moved Lifework Forum onto the international stage. Curt and Sandra recognize that it has all been accomplished by the Holy Spirit of God. Zechariah 4:6
Board of Directors
Lifework Forum is blessed to receive direction from an active and supportive group of mature brothers and sisters in Christ. They believe in the ministry God has called us to and listen closely to our ideas, excitement, concerns, and joys. They lend us their hard-won experience and God-blessed expertise wherever and whenever they are needed. Most importantly, our Directors are responsible to hold us accountable to God through His Word and the divine guidance therein contained.
Our Advisors are our cheerleaders. They share their enthusiasm with us via emails, visits, phone calls, skype sessions, etc. Their excitement also bubbles over to their friends, family and church members, anybody who’ll listen either face to face or over the internet. They’re instrumental in maintaining and extending the critical prayer support we need. They’ve also opened the door on more than one occasion for us to come and tell others about the ministry God has granted us.
We are humbled by the involvement of so many precious people who have come along side us from various nations. The unity of purpose and diversity of encouragement are a wonderful example of the character of God Himself. May His Name be hallowed in all the earth.
