Joshua 1:8-9 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. …Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
It’s time to take ownership of the PRESENCE OF GOD, the POWER OF GOD, and the PROMISES OF GOD!
Undoubtedly, we are living in very uncertain times. There is economic, political, and relational breakdown all around. Though intense and urgent, these are just symptoms of a much greater cause. In America, only 9% of the citizenship claims to live with a biblical worldview… 1 of 3 adults believes that moral truth is absolute and unaffected by circumstances… Only 50% of Americans believe that the Bible is accurate in ALL its teachings.. And only 40% believe that Jesus lived a sinless life.* We are in a CRISIS OF FAITH!
But there is still HOPE! Every day, you and I can choose to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of us. (Philippians 3:12)
Join us September 20-22, 2013 for Sandy Cove Women’s Weekend. You’ll be inspired to take hold of who you are in Christ, and all that has been provided for you, in Him. I can’t wait to see you and YOUR FRIENDS in September. It’s time to OWNit!

There are multitudes of people who believe in the message of the gospel, but it takes a special gift to passionately share God’s truth in a way that truly impacts lives. Alicia has that ability. She is an accomplished singer/songwriter, prominent Bible teacher, keynote speaker, and television host.
Over the last few years God has opened doors for Alicia to partner with several other ministries. “God is faithful. He’s given me numerous opportunities to share in ministry with friends and mentors,” Alicia explains. Some of these ministries include Precept Ministries with bible teacher, Kay Arthur, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, IN Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, Women of Faith, Gaither Homecoming, The Brooklyn Tabernacle, Dr. Tony Evans of the Urban Alternative, TBN, The Inspiration Networks, CBN, and many more.
“The heart of our ministry is the Word of God. God has given us music to open the heart and His infallible Word to fill the heart and change a life. Worship, in its total essence is a response to the truth, not a reaction to circumstances,” says Alicia.
Blending articulate communication with heartfelt emotion, Alicia reaches her audiences with a clear knowledge of the gospel and a genuine desire to see lives changed by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Rebecca was raised in a loving, Christian home and believed at an early age that Jesus died on the cross for her sins, rose again and that He is in Heaven building a home for her there. At the age of 13 when she went away on a mission’s trip, she rededicated her life to Jesus. She praises God for that pivotal time in her life and the God-directed choices she made as a result.
She has a Master’s degree in Education and Bachelor’s degrees in Bible and Music Education from Philadelphia Biblical University (now called Cairn University). It was in a college music ministry group that she met her husband, Blair, and they now have the privilege and awesome responsibility of raising six wonderful children.
Rebecca leads worship at Bucks County Community Church in Langhorne, PA, teaches private piano and voice lessons, teaches a creative arts integration course at Cairn, has a solo concert ministry, leads worship at retreats and also sings at various other venues. Her desire is that all she does be for the glory of God.
