Michelle Sanchez Joins Board of Advisors

We’re thrilled to welcome Michelle Sanchez to our Board of Advisors! Michelle has been a longtime friend of ours and one of the key champions for Immerse within the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination. She also recently joined us for our conversation on How the Bible’s Story Helps Us Talk About Racism. We’re so grateful for her friendship and for the wisdom that she’ll contribute to our organization.

When it comes to discipleship, studies have shown that reflection on the Bible is the #1 catalyst for spiritual growth – but what does that look like for the contemporary church? In pursuing what it means to foster the flourishing of twenty-first-century disciples in the Word of God, the Institute for Bible Reading is engaged in some of the most important work of the church today.

Michelle T. Sanchez serves as Executive Minister of Make and Deepen Disciples for the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination. Previously, Michelle served in leadership for the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, as a minister to international students with Cru, and as an investment banker for Goldman, Sachs & Co.

Michelle completed an M.Div. and Th.M. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, spiritual direction training at the Boston College School of Theology, and field studies on the life of Jesus in Jerusalem. She is a regular columnist for Outreach Magazine and looks forward to the publication of her first book on the theme of antiracist discipleship.
