At a young age, God showed Pivotal (Rachael) Sales that she was made to be a wife, a mother and a teacher. The idea of raising a big family and opening schools was a dream come true from her youth. Her husband and best friend Malcolm Sales has the same passion for family, children and education. Together they are the cofounders of Healing Waters Christian Academy and the proud parents of ten beautiful children.
Pivotal Sales is a native of Tuskegee, Alabama and a graduate of Spelman College and Stanford University. While working on a PhD degree at Stanford, she received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, left the program and answered the call on her life to birth nations leaving with a masters degree. Upon moving to Atlanta, Georgia, she was trained by Apostle Camy Arnett of BYOBB Media and Outreach ministries, who gave her the name Pivotal as a constant reminder of the crucial nature of the calling on her life.
Pivotal is currently the director of the Children’s Ministry, Church Within a Church at BYOBB Media and Outreach Ministries. On any given Sunday you can find the children rushing to children’s church for lively activity, sound teaching and snacks! The children hit local neighborhoods and recreational venues regularly sharing the love of Jesus Christ to youth and adults. They love it! She loves it! And it shows!
As an educator, Mrs. Sales has also taught at private schools and directed after-school programs, youth conferences, camps and seminars on the state of education. What started as a home school program in 2001 has now grown into Healing Waters Christian Academy. Its curriculum is designed to train children as early as nine months in the Word of God and academics through utilizing children’s gifts and talents. HWCA children have been featured on television and at conferences for their ability to recite chapters from the Bible, multiplication tables and state capitals at such young ages. At-risk youth are being set free from ADHD and sedative medications and now have a love for God and for learning.
She is the author of an insightful children’s educational curriculum entitled, Teach all Nations, A Sound Guide for the Education of God’s Children and Birthing Nations, an anthology of mother’s stories about birthing and raising children through the supernatural power of God. She is a motivational speaker and educational trainer who loves the life God has given.
