Goodwin, Sam & Elizabeth

Serving in Germany | Acct # 12821


Sam grew up in Ohio and South Carolina. He became a believer as a child. After graduating from college, Sam worked in the computer field as a software developer, and later attended seminary. During his time at seminary Sam felt the call to cross-cultural ministry, and after earning his M.Div. at Columbia International University (CIU) he was ordained in the PCA.

Elizabeth grew up in Germany, the daughter of church-planting missionaries, and is a native, fluent German speaker. She attended CIU for her undergraduate studies and later obtained her master’s degree in Germanistics from the University of South Carolina.

Sam and Elizabeth married in 2004 and began pursuing missions as a couple. In 2012 they arrived in Munich and have been partnering with a variety of German church planters, helping to establish and grow churches in Munich. They and their three daughters engage in active lifestyle evangelism and outreach, using their home and family as their ministry base. Sam is also the leader for an MTW team that “incubates,” or prepares, new MTW missionaries who have a desire to plant churches in the German speaking world. Other ministries include member care, teaching, counseling/discipleship, youth and children’s work, and translation.
