Sandi Bokovoy’s passion throughout her lifetime has been Children, Youth and music ministry, in partnership with her husband Alex, a graduate of Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Fellow, American College of Surgeons, Diplomat American Board of Surgery, and certified for both general and vascular surgery. Over their lifetime they served in Ethiopia and Singapore, with brief projects in Malaysia, Jamaica, Russia, Tanzania and Madagascar.
When they returned to the United States, Sandi continued to work with children and youth in Texas and Hawaii, serving in leadership roles in Pathfinders and Child Evangelism. While in Texas she created a youth choir group that toured the US for 3 years, culminating with a trip to Israel that became the film, “Ancient Dawn”. During retirement, she and Alex became actively involved in Native Ministries, where she served for several years as Director of Children’s Ministries.
Sandi has a BA in Religion and Minors in Music and Secondary Education from Southwestern Union College (now Southwestern Adventist University) in Keene, Texas and Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska. She also completed all but the final year of nurse’s training – two years at Union College and one year at Loma Linda University School of Nursing. She left early to be married.
