Sara Morris was saved at vacation Bible school when she was five years old. She surrendered her life to the Lord a few years later, but she struggled with doubts about her salvation until her early teen years. During a week of evangelistic meetings when she was 14, she got assurance of her salvation and has not doubted since.
As she grew older, the Lord deepened her desire to serve Him full-time. She studied music and Bible in college and, after graduating, served in the ministry of a Bible college for five years. She loved the college ministry with opportunities to teach music and mentor young ladies. In 2008, the Lord led her to graduate school to work on a degree in music composition and gave her the privilege of studying privately with Mrs. Joan Pinkston. After one year of grad school, she had the opportunity to serve for a summer in the Philippines. During that time the Lord knit her heart not only to the Filipino people but also to the missionary team and the ministry of Bob Jones Memorial Bible College. Sara appreciated BJMBC’s vision of training Asians to reach Asia with the Gospel as well as its emphasis on training composers to write indigenous, God-honoring music for use in national churches.
After graduating with her master’s degree, she returned to serve in the Philippines for four years as a short-term missionary. She taught arranging/composition classes and private piano at BJMBC, mentored young ladies, and served in various ministries in her local church. Sara is now on deputation in preparation to return to the Philippines long-term.
